I have rendered my track from Ableton Live and want to upload the track to SoundCloud.
I'm a bit confused about the application of compression since I don't have much experience with Mastering.
I'll be using Fabfilter Pro-C/Pro-C2 or the free Melda Productions MCompressor and MLimiter.
Music style is Downtempo Electronica
I use to do a somewhat gentle compression to increase loudness and also limit the peaks.
Should I apply limiting first to cut those peaks?
What would you recommend that I do?
I want to post a picture of the waveform but Dropbox is not working now and I can't seem to attach pictures with google drive
