compressing the compressed

Music diary: The Mutator filter has wild gain swings and I've been wanting to push it more without clipping (tired of those clicks!). Went to Sam Ash and found a used DBX compressor/limiter for 89 bucks. The peak stop limiter isn't very good (you still get clicks on super blow out volume levels) but at 10:1 compression and output gain slightly below zero it mostly does the job. Have been dialing through Electribe presets with the Mutator removing most of the treble and transients and the DBX keeping the bass blorts under control. I love the dense, heavy underwater sound. Have recorded some of these and compressed them even further with mastering plugins.
