I love the compression effect on the sx, but every time i finalize my track and run it through the sx's mfx 12, it kills my kick drum. any tips on how to not drown out my kick?? I usually go about this by making my kick drums "click" sound a bit harder and that sometimes helps, but i would much rather have my kick sound the original way i intended it to sound in the first place haha.

You gotta turn all the other sounds down while keeping the kick drum loud yo. compression just makes the output a consistent loudness, so when you lower all the other sounds, they are just as loud as before because of that compression bringing everything back up to the desired volume. but when you hit that kick drum, remember that in the original mix before the mfx 12, the drum was WAY louder than everything else. so the compression turns the volume down to bring the kick drum down, but it brings all the other sounds too. giving your kick some room so you can really hear that boom yo.
