Multiband Compression Basics

by Ian Stewart, iZotope Contributor September 16, 2021

There are no two ways about it: without some good guidance, multiband compression is tricky! As a young, intrepid engineer, I remember asking one of the senior engineers at a studio I was interning at, “Do you have any tips on how to use multiband compression effectively?” He replied, “Oh, I don’t really get into that. Maybe ask Will.” I asked Will—one of the other engineers. Will responded, “Oh, yeah, it’s pretty complex. I use it for mastering sometimes, but I wouldn’t really worry about it if I were you.”

Mastering Music: 10 Hidden Features in Ozone Pro

by Geoff Manchester, iZotope Content Team September 8, 2021

iZotope Ozone Pro is one of the most popular and powerful mastering plug-ins in the world. It’s been around for almost 20 years, but whether you’re new to it or even a longtime power-user, there are features in the tool that you probably don’t even know about.

The detection filter is important to know about.

Dynamics — Ozone 9 Help Documentation

The Dynamics module can be used to shape the dynamics of your master, with up to four bands of analog-modeled compression, limiting, and expansion.

Detection Filter

Enable this view to adjust the frequency response of the detection circuit. When the Detection Filter is active, you can access the controls outlined in the table and image below. Detection filter processing is included in the Dynamics module and Vintage Compressor module

Apply Transform User Preset 10 to selected Events — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Apply Transform User Preset 10 to selected Events

It is likely that I will be learning how to create transform sets for mapping drum kits (I have Logic, EZDrummer, MODO Drums, and SampleTank).

First steps are finding the note mappings for each variety. I have EZD, and can see Logic’s mapping.

Use MIDI transform sets in Logic Pro — Apple Support

Depending on your needs, it may be worthwhile to create your own transform sets. These can be configured and saved as part of a project. (Doing this in your template projects makes your transform sets available in all projects.) Your transform sets are shown at the bottom of the Presets pop-up menu.

Set Nudge Value to 1/2 Triplet (1/3) — Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Set Nudge Value to 1/2 Triplet (1/3)

Sets the Nudge Value to one half of a triplet. By my reckoning that would be the full value of one of the notes — quarter note triplet — one half is a full quarter note. I’m not sure that I understand when I might want to nudge things like this, unless I was moving something that wasn’t an actual part of the triplet. Hmmm.

Move regions in the Logic Pro Tracks area — Apple Support

You can nudge regions (move them in small increments) left or right using key commands. To nudge regions, you first set the nudge value, then move selected regions by this value. Alternatively, you can nudge regions by a set value.
