#AudiotentTip 197. Quick Compressor Comparison.
There are many types of compressors, each with their own colour and tone. A great way to quickly A/B these is to use hot keys in your DAW. Simply setup two or more compressors on your chosen channel. Copy the exact same settings for attack, release, threshold etc. Now go into your DAW hot key menu and select a key to each of the power buttons/bypass for each compressor. Now you can quickly toggle between the two or more compressors to see which you prefer.
