Help with Fairchild

Hey all, I just purchased the Fairchild and the interface is very odd looking compared to other compressors. Does anyone have alot of experience with this compressor getting some of the amazing results that i've been reading about? I'm not finding it to sound all that different/unique. I'm looking for help in finding some really good general settings.

Thanx

The built-in presets are a good starting point, but I would definitely suggest reading through the Fairchild section of the UAD-1 Manual first as it outlines what each control does pretty clearly, and helps make sense of what each knob/dial does.

Thick bass preset, along with Pultec preset with similar name, is very flattering to DI sound of my Jazz bass.

LA-2A for vocals, and 1176 on drum submix (or loop) and guitars.

Then again Fairchild on Master. So far works fine for me.

noise

I have that problem (noise, freeze) sometimes using the Fairchild on the stereo output bus. I've seen that other people have also had the freeze followed by noise. Someone said that AutoTune seems to be a culprit. I found that when I switch the Fairchild for the Precision Limiter, the freeze/noise goes away.

Can you direct me to any threads regarding this? I have been having serois issues with freezing (SX CPU goes to 100%) and sometimes it goes to complete digital noise, sometimes it comes back, and sometimes I need a cold reboot.

It usually happens when I am shuttling and is more severe at lower latencies. it is driving me nuts!

...and it just dawns on me that I am having the problem with Autotune 4 running into an LA2A and the Autotune running into the Fairchild. Is this really my answer!?
