Compression is one of the most important (yet misunderstood) tools needed for creating professional audio mixes. Gain the confidence of knowing how to properly use it, hear it, dial in settings, and choose the right one to make your mixes sound amazing.
Compression Mastery will show you how.
When used incorrectly, compression can ruin your mixes.
But understanding how to use it and training your ears to properly HEAR the effects of compression can be a struggle.
It doesn't always make a drastic change. In fact, in many cases, the goal is to use compression in a way that makes it as transparent as possible...
This makes the process of dialling in settings even more confusing...
For years, I used to guess at which settings to use. I'd tinker aimlessly, hoping to find a magical setting that would have any sort of impact.
I'd often use presets thinking that those would do the job (afterall, they were named after the instruments I was using them on...)
When in solo, I'd be able to hear the changes these presets would make and I'd assume that these were the correct settings to use. But when I added the other instruments back, I'd often realize my instruments sounded weaker or that they had lost some of their energy and punch.
Plugin presets will NOT work for YOUR music!
It's not that you've done anything wrong with your recordings or that you are incapable of creating pro mixes... It's that presets were created to solve problems for a totally unique situation. Unless you're working on the exact same song, with the exact same tracks, same equipment, room, performer, gain settings, etc., presets will not get you the right results for your specific project.
Every mix is different. Each song requires a personalized approach to dialing in the correct settings in order to give each instrument the clarity it deserves.
What works on one mix will not necessarily work for another. You need to understand the nuances of picking the right compressor and settings for the job you are working on.
