Regarding the link-filters, check for some information on our
A typical limiter is usually used just on peaks so the following is
a good starting point in
SC Style: Modern FF; peak
SC Tone: Vintage or medium
Link filter: High pass, with 0-50 blend for limiting peaks on the
L/R channel separately
Others: Short attack, fast release, high ratio
There are presets for limiting and of course you can use limiting
for different purposes because you can use it for more than just
controlling peaks and transients.
Actually you may also just enable the 'Analog' feature which can
also 'limit' fast peaks.
And don't worry - it can take years to really know what your
doing and can achieve with compression and use it to make the most
out of it. This is the case also because there are different types. The
dNa-MasterCOMP may look simple but that can be deceiving.
