Ok, I am just now attempting to use the waveform display in order to view some loud vocal parts on a song, and compress them at those points. Unfortunately I'm getting a little confused in how to coordinate both.

Could someone give me a handle on how to do this? I've looked through Franks documents, done a search here, and even searched on Google.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

The waveform doesn't work in real time playback, unfortunately.

I'd recommend adding compression and simply using your ears.

Thanks for the info. It's kind of a bummer. I've got some kick drum and vocal spikes I would love to tame a little and be able to see it as I'm compressing.

You will see the effect of the compressor on the levels in the track edit screen. The only way to see the effect on the waveform is to bounce the track with the compression applied and then view the waveform of the bounced track which isn't really what you are wanting to do and is a bit of messing about.

The other way is to run the analyzer (if you have an effects card not being used) which does work in real time and you should be able to see the effect of the compressor on that.
