    Compression for Drums

    I just got Drumkit from Hell which is....AWESOME...gotta question though...what compression/limiting plug-ins would you guys recommend for that vintage Ringo Star compressed raw kit sound?

    TIA

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">If you run Waves Renaissance compressors in the \"manual\" mode (ARC off), you can get them to breathe like that...use the opto mode as well, rather than the electro mode. Opto mode models an optical compressor, electro mode is a \"non-analog\" kind of shape that is very transparent but not emulative of the vintage sound you\'re looking for.

    You can essentially do this with C4 as well, if you want to really sculpt the response. Turn off ARC, and set each band to \"breathe\" as you want.

    Waves Ren comp works for me too as does
    Bomb Factory LA2 and especially the Fairchild 660 copy

    Some people swear by PSP Vintage Warmer although it sounded a little over the top to me when I tried the demo.
