5 Different Ways to Use Software Compressors — Audient

5 Different Ways to Use Software Compressors — Audient

If you asked a room full of audio engineer students what a compressor does, you’d probably get a wide range of responses. “It’s the thing that makes tracks louder!” one may claim. “It’s that plugin David Guetta uses to make his synths pump!” another might say. Is there a single answer? Technically speaking, compressors simply reduce the dynamic range of a signal. Depending on their settings and application, however, compressors can be incredibly useful in a variety of situations. For this tutorial, we’ll be using Ableton’s stock compressors, but any basic software compressor will do. Here are 5 common uses of compressors:

undocumented command. There are many fine points about regions and how to work with them. They are only documented in the Logic Pro 9 manuals. Time to read Chapter 13 of the Logic Pro 9 manual.

Logic Pro 9 User Manual: Selecting Regions

This action removes all unselected areas from regions which are partly marquee-selected.

Logic Pro 9 User Manual: Creating Your Arrangement

Once you have added your audio and MIDI regions to the Arrange area, you can edit and reorganize them to create an overall arrangement, or project. Most arranging and editing techniques work identically for both audio and MIDI regions. Apple Loops are also handled in a similar fashion. Where handling differs, variations are pointed out in the appropriate sections of this chapter. Note that all operations described with a pluralized heading (regions, for example), apply to one or more selected region(s).


9 Tips for Using Reverb with Drums

9 Tips for Using Reverb with Drums

Some of the reverbs we’ll be working with today
Your drums sound narrow, dry, and small. You need them to sound bigger, so you send them to a concert-hall reverb. That’ll do the trick, right? Probably not. Now all you have are small, narrow drums surrounded by a lot of incongruous reverb.
