Hi recording people!
I really want to add a compressor to my home studio because I know a lot of situations where I can use it. The only problem is that I don't know how to connect it. I want to connect it to my mixer so that I can use it instantly on the entire mix or just when playing one of my instruments, and recording it (one at a time). I've searched a lot on the internet and I came to the conclusion that a compressor is best used as an INSERT-effect, not as a BUS.
This is how I think I should connect it. The picture is showing the upper right corner of my Allen & Heath ZED-14 mixer and the Alesis 3630 Compressor/limiter:
It that the right way to connect a compressor in a studio environment? I am so confused so I thaught that maybe someone in here knew how to connect it.
