For a good fullness effect I use reverb and chorus. They do the whole thing warmly.

i thought the limiter in reason was the same as the compressor just that the limiter automatically makes up for the gain reduction in volume,(at which it does a shite job of) ? ? ? ?

Well, actually, a limiter is a compressor with a hard setting on it.

In Reason 3.0 they added the maximizer, wich is a pure limiter and not a compressor with near limiter settings...

Ok so is the reason that all my tunes have good layouts but the sound quality isnt there, is because I have to use headphones for everything that I do. I set up a set of speakers today, and heard what everyone was talking about. EX: Muddy bass, which I heard on the surround sound, but not in the headphones.

No that is not the difference between a compressor and a limiter. What you are describing is known as a 'bootstrap' compressor / limiter. A normal compressor reduces the level of the loudest parts and then makes it louder by bringing up the gain by a fixed amount (=the make up gain). A bootstrap compressor keeps the level of the loudest parts at the ceiling (=maximum sound level, 0dBFS in digital) and brings up the level of the quieter parts. It is actually an inverse expander Smile A bootstrap comp does not work well with all kinds of signals, it works best on sources which don't have too much dynamic to start with, so it is easier to determine the level of the ceiling. That is probably why you think it does a shitty job Big Grin

The difference between a compressor and a limiter is what Muad'dib says. A limiter is a compressor with a very high ratio (10:1 up to infinity:1) and a very short attack time. You can set up most 'normal' compressors to work as a limiter by putting a high ratio and a short attack time.

And also, to add, the treshold is little below 0dB.

about EQing:

Most important things of producing are : talent/originality/eq,master...
this is for instant eq (eq for each sound ->sub , bass , kick , snare , sounds , highhats , etc... the more appart channels you choose for it , the better)

best eq'er in FL6 is the...

EQUO - Morphing Graphic Equalizer



EQUO is an advanced morphing graphic equalizer plugin. EQUO is particularly suited to live or automated tweaking during a performance. The main display contains both the EQ (VOL) and EQ (PAN) controls so that sounds can not only be shaped according to frequency content, but panning can be applied on specific frequency basis. Further, One Master EQ shape and then a further 8 separate EQ/PAN shapes may be set and then these EQ shapes can be smoothly morphed using the Morph knob. An alternative to EQUO is Fruity Parametric EQ.

the handiest thing on it is the:

Analyze - When the Analyze button is held, EQUO will average the frequency spectrum of the incoming signal (over the duration the button is held) and upon release create an EQ curve antagonistic to that signal. The interaction of the analyzed curve can be varied from antagonistic (cut) though to complimentary (boost) with the MIX knob. NOTE: Bands 40 Hz and below are not included in the 'Analyze' function as they 'muddy' the mix, set them manually if you require sub-bass EQ.

now i just hope you know what boost/cut frequenties is... Tongue
