    QLSO Nuendo and compression

    I'm writing orchestral pieces with usually between 15 and 20 instruments with Kompact through Nuendo 3.1.
    It all sounds nice to me through my Mackie HR824's without compression.

    So I was wondering if there is a 'rule of thumb' for adding a bit across the mix for orchestral stuff.

    Is it down to personal taste?

    I love composing but I'm a real dunce when it comes to mastering

    here
    is a link to and example of my stuff.

    Can you help?

    Gotta say I liked that Jim. I liked it right up to the point when some God awful string type patch appeared and it sounded like you were playing chords on a keyboard. But after that - I liked it again.

    The sound in general is good to me through these headphones - I wouldn't get too worried about what an orchestral sound is supposed to sound like when using samples. Pretty good sound all in all.

    Cheers paul,
    I have not had the nerve to bare all on this forum before as the quality is so high.
    I shall address the strings and get god out of the equation.
