How to understand and use compression: In-depth tutorial

Compression is the most powerful and most misunderstood tool in the mix. This video will help you understand compression and start to hear how it works.

☛ compressor controls: what they are + what they do (threshold, ratio, attack, release, gain/output)

☛ examples to show you how the play between the ratio, attack and release powerfully shapes a mix’s sound + character
