Recording Connection Success Stories

This week I learned a lot about compression.

“My mentor explained how important this is to make your mix sound that much better. It keeps everything in place like if a vocalist goes really high and low it will keep it all at a consistent level so it doesn’t sound all over the place. He got into really good detail on how it works with the threshold, attack, release, and ratio. I also learned a cool trick on pro tools where if there a popping noise you can re draw the wave to fix the unwanted pop. My mentor was also moving some of his equipment around so I was able to see exactly how everything was set up and why it was set up the way it was. This was a really good learning week because I always have known about compression, but now I know exactly why and how it is used.”
