I have it too, but it tends to come and go. Other posters are right, you DO get used to it.

Dazzer, Check out the presets in Compressor II. Try a couple out, (there's a "limiter" setting BTW). Check out the gain reduction meter in the comp as your subject is talking, and when their louder parts of speech get caught by the compression. try a 4:1 ratio and play with the threshold setting.

What mic will you be using? If it is a sensitive condenser then you'll have to be careful holding it........but otherwise I don't see why there'd be a problem with holding the mic. OK to use Live in session view - IMO - because each recording can easily become a clip with auto assigned numbers. You ...

PA Quality in clubs

I have been in a few dance clubs recently for the first time in years – anyway, in the places I have been to I have noticed that the quality of the sound really sucks big time.

there should be a mode of operation in some OS, which would basically stop 'everything' and completely devote all its energy into running a single way.. i went from windows 95, to windows XP ...when I saw the spec of the laptop I was salivating, imagining what kind of performance I'd get.

Seeing as you're in the US, I would check out the m-tech laptops... www.m-tech.com. They look pretty good and they are configurable, unlike the Toshibas etc - which probably cost an arm and leg to re-configure I am looking at Intel duo core/ati radeon graphics, 7200 rpm drive etc. Course I am not in...
