Chris Lord Alge On Compression

Here's Part 2 of video that's more or less a commercial for the Chris Lord Alge-branded Waves compressor package (the "CLA" series), but it's a pretty good explanation of how he uses the basic LA-2A, LA-3A and 1176 compressors used by mixers from the beginning of studio time. In Part 2 he covers drums and guitars, while in Part 1 he covers vocals. If you don't already know, Chris has been one of the big-buck mixers since the 80's, and has worked on just about every kind of music that you can think of.

Is it me or is he only using inserts vs. sends? I'm not a ProTools user, but the lower part of the channel strips sections show no sends.
