In this episode we’re going to be talking about compression!
Compression is probably the trickiest tool to learn as a music producer, in addition, it will also be the last tool that you’ll fully comprehend, too!
We cover the basics of most compressors (threshold, ratio, attack, and release), as well as cover the knee (some compressors allow you to adjust this), and more advanced compression techniques, like upwards compression.
We even go further by describing how to get started using a compressor, what to listen for, and how to use a compressor so that you know the settings you’ve applied are actually benefiting your music!
Learn how to balance a vocal, or shape/mold a sound with your attack and release knobs!
