Use the AAC encoder in iTunes set to the highest bit rate that will squeeze you in under 2 megs. It isn't gonna be pretty though...

Compressing Over Heads

How do you guys handle compressing your overheads? Thus far, I've used two inserts on the separate left and right overhead channels with two mono compressors with identical settings. Would it be better to link the compressors so that they behave identically like a stereo compressor, or send the two ...

Re: help me deshittify my kick sound

One of the first things i'll do when working in digital is to high pass everything. Get rid of what you don't need. It does amazing things =)

Re: help me deshittify my kick sound

Try somehting more like this for EQ, even before reaching for compression. First, low cut around 30 or 40hz, sometimes I will even do more.

You can compress the sub mix hard, and then bring it up under the original un-compressed drum tracks and get ...
