I'm a bit new to all of this, so I just wanted to get some advice from some pros.
I'm doing VOs for different segments that are all going to be strung together into one final track. In stage 1 of the process, for each VO segment, I've been told that I will need to apply compression to each. Then, once I connect my segments together for my final mix (stage 2), I will need to compress that final mix also. This initially made sense to me, because I noticed a drop in volume when combining the segments in stage 2, and compression seemed to restore that. However, when I let another experienced sound person hear what I had done, he complained that there was "too much bass" in the final mix. I didn't EQ anything in stage 2, so what could be wrong? Should I even be compressing things twice? If not, is there anything else I can do to fix the gain loss I am experiencing in stage 2 other than compression? Thanks!
