How To Setup A Compressor

Back

Welcome

This introductory course will help you wrap your head around the concept of compression, with a simple process for using compression at basic level.  

It will help you understand WHEN you need to use compression, HOW to dial it in, and how to really hear what the compressor is doing.

By the end, you'll be able to make general compression settings for drums, instruments, vocals and the master channel -- without "just turning knobs".

Start learning how to get that really solid pumping effect that makes your whole track bounce and move!
