The final stage of your mix, Reason’s Master Compressor is a great way to give your song a little extra magic. But bass heavy music might benefit from an advanced mastering tip that helps focus the way the Master Compressor behaves. Ryan has made a short tip on the how and why of using the “external sidechain input” on Reason’s Master Bus Compressor to focus the signal that the compressor is listening to and reacting to. The result is much better compression that doesn’t get overwhelmed by Kick drums and bass frequencies, which can make the compressor overreact and squash the output too much or too universally.
