Compressor; What to compress? What to sidechain?

What usually do you compress in your track? I’m in the final stages of my original track and its just too loud…

I know I need to compress and sidechain compress, but do I do it on everything? Sidechain the main synths against the drums? Just the synths? Help please!

Why dont you watch some of the tutorials?

There are sounds constantly getting compressed and the reasons as to why they are being compressed get explained too :wink:
