"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.
