"Every mistake is an opportunity to learn.” This course addresses 10 common compression mistakes and shows you how to correct them. Let US make the mistakes so YOU don’t have to!

Compression is difficult to understand. There are a lot of moving parts and this makes it difficult to learn, especially when you’re applying it to tracks in real time. That’s because Compression is a dynamic, fluid process that is influenced by changing input levels, musical genres and the kinds of tracks being processed. Things get even more complicated because compressors have many different kinds of interdependent controls that can quickly lead to serious audio problems. That’s why we created this "Common Compression Mistakes” course. We show you the mistakes and you get to learn from them!

Drawing from his extensive professional experience, expert engineer/trainer Joe Albano has thoughtfully isolated 10 common compressor situations that he feels can confuse new engineers and experienced ones alike. He dives into them one-by-one and then explains the solutions that he feels make the most audio sense.

So learn from Joe’s mistakes in this 10 Common Compression Mistakes course and use that knowledge to dive into your own tracks with "compression confidence” to achieve the best audio dynamic results possible.

Using a compressor and understanding compression is one of the hardest things for entry audio engineers to grasp. With so many different compressors and compressors types its not hard to see why people struggle with compression. Compression is critical to getting good mixes in music today, and without a proper knowledge of compressors and how to use them your mixes can easily turn thin and lifeless. Compressors can add color to tracks, crush drums, smooth out vocals, and add weight to a bass. Compressors can add to an track, or it can take away. For example, with a compressor you add punch to a kick drum, you can take the punch away. It all depends on how you use it. And there are many, many ways to use a compressor. Using compression properly will help improve your mixes by keeping dynamics controlled.

Ready to take your compression skills to the next level? In my All About Compression course I move on to more advanced information about compression. I will go over advanced compressor controls such as mix, knee, and side chain. If you've taken my basics of compression course then consider this course the next step to continue learning about compression. In All About Compression I will cover the different types of compressors, different kinds of compressors, uses for different type of compressors, classic compressors and how to use them, and much more.

I also go over different compressor techniques and examples of use. This course will expand your capabilities with a compressor and introduce you to new ways of how to use them. I've been engineering for over 15 years now, and in that time I've gotten to use a lot of different compressors. And I've gotten to know some compressors very well. The more you use and learn about compressors the more the confident you will become in using them. And this course should help boost that confidence. Because all compressors are different it can be difficult to find the right compressor the job. I will go over my approach to choosing a compressor for a track. Anyone taking this course should have a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) with a compressor plugin so they can go over and practice these techniques. The DAW being used in this course Presonus Studio One. However the DAW you use is not important, as all DAW's will come with a compressor. By sharing some of my knowledge of 15 plus years in audio this course will teach you the following:

Different compressor types
compression techniques
Multi band compression
De-essing and how to set a de-esser
choosing the right compressor
parallel compression
serial compression
side chain compression
using automation with compression
how to set a compressor for general compression
how to set a compressor for mix bus compression
classic comperssors and how to use them
