At the time, I didn't have bus compressors on my dialog stem, so the only way to make this work was to raise the level and lower the compressor threshold. I've love to have a moveable flag on the insert chain on a track in Pro Tools that indicates where the fader is, so you can place it where you want it. I've subsequently upgraded my template to include some compression on the dialog bus as needed. But I do this with a light touch.

Okay. Thanks for explanation. I get what you mean now.
