James Bernard continues his excellent series of weekly tips for Propellerhead Reason and Record.
This week's episode looks at compression tips for the best mixes. Here's what Bernard has to say it:
For many people, compressors are the biggest obstacle between them and a professional mix. But if you know how to use them, compressors are your best tool to achieve that professional mix. Most early interactions with compressors involve cranking them up until they sound horrible and then removing them - wondering why anyone would even want to use them in the first place. This week I'll explain what a compressor's actually doing and how to make it work the way you want.
