don't smash the crap out of stuff!! it sound terrible, it is hard on the ears and does not translate well to TV -- they are going to smash it more. leave it dynamic, but have a high average level....this will ultimate sound louder anyway.

i would be careful in your use of Maxim. to me, it has a nasty upper mid boost that will get even nastier after the broadcast chain.

Hi minister! Great to recieve an answer from you, I always read your posts.
So, what is your average gain reduction when mixing a documentary-style of program? Do you use several compressors, ore just one on the master?

How do you work with keeping the levels correct to the specs, like dialogue from -18 to -10?

I know that I sometimes tend to smash things up a bit while tryin to make every dialogue audible.
Did a documentary series about hockeplayers this spring. That was hard, dealing with all the sudden transients of the hockey arena and most of all, the sounds from the skates.
