Bitwig Preset: Serial Wall Compressor

Bitwig Preset Serial Wall Compressor

Single Band Serial Compression. This uses multiple compressors in series with increasing ratios and slightly offset attack times for a more gentle onset of limiting before a limiter. There's a saturator at the beginning of the chain to tame extreme peaks to simulate tape saturation effect before compression. The Limiter at the end is just a final peak catch with fast release times. Ideally, start with the input gain glow and raise it up for a pillowy hard brickwall compression and limiting. Sounds kinda like a opto style limiting when used agressively on drums. meant to squash but still have transients pop out of sound.
