 Sessions 04 Compressors


The theory and practice of studio audio compressors and compression in dance music.
Studio compressors form an absolute essential part of any dance musicians set-up. Hardware or software, what was once an imperceptible processor, it has become central to the sound of dance music today. However, there is more to using compression than just dropping it onto an audio track
Compressors represented as designed to be a transparent processor. If they’re used correctly, they shouldn’t be noticeable but this also makes it one of the most least understood processes in music production. After all, if you can’t hear it, how do you know you’ve applied it correctly?

For this sessions TUTORIAL we lift the lid off what is often considered one of the most confusing processes in the studio. We not only examine the controls and how they affect the audio, we also look into the different types of compression from Opto to VCA, FET and MU, and discuss the audible differences between each to help you decide which is the best type of compressor to use in your projects.
We also discuss how compression has moved from being an imperceptible processor into an obvious audio effect that is now requisite for most dance music styles, and how to use as such. A thorough and concise understanding of compressors and audio compression will not only improve the sound of your mixes but also help in all stages of the production process from recording to mixing.

Sessions is our new range of tutorials aimed at helping producers fully comprehend some of the most important and popular processors, effects and instruments in their arsenal, and more importantly, how to use them knowledgeably during any production work.

We discuss exactly what reverb is, how it works, the principle of RT60, Sabins, early reflections, late reflections, reverberation fields, ambience, plates and chambers, alongside the uses of modulation, diffusion, spin, wander, EQ, reflection and pre-delay.
