Question Leveling masonite floor

I am going to be laying laminate flooring. I have a tongue and groove subfloor with 1/4" masonite over it. I need to level the floor first. What is the best way to do this? I've read, not to use leveling compound over wood, but to use roofing felt or shingles instead. There are spots which need to be raised almost an inch. What should I use? Won't the shingles make a crunching noise? Isn't the felt too thin?

Uhhh??? You need more then felt!!!

Sorry to say this, but you need some structural reengineering. If you can get to it from below, jacking and shimming the joist.

This space may be destined for carpet, unless your budget can bare what it is going to take to get the substrate to specs.
