Today's soundtrack is Old Man's Child: In Defiance of Existence.

Now that I've completed my metal project, I'm ready to get started on the next big thing. I spent my time today setting up a new template in Reaper, setting up a workflow for my next project. My friend Marcus recently taught me a lot about using compressors and limiters in my workflow, so I've been playing around with the Klanghelm DC1A Compressor in conjunction with the LoudMax brick wall limiter and I've been blown away by the results. The compressor makes the sounds sit together nicely; the LoudMax knocks off any stray transients, letting me make my mix louder without clipping or distortion.
