Understanding compression is equal part science & art. For those new to compression I recommend adjusting the THRESHOLD & INPUT to set the desired amount of compression. Use your ears & not your meters. Set your ATTACK time to your desired amount of slap/punch. Use the RELEASE to shape & color your sound. Fast release times can really smooth things out. It’s equal part saturation & peak limiting combined. Longer release times can emphasize the attack transients. Use the MAKEUP GAIN to set your final output level. Most importantly experiment. The DME 1968 is an excellent Channel or Bus insert.
