Mold Your Sounds with Compression

comment for free sound kitCompression is probably the trickiest topic in audio production! It takes years of practice to train your ear and have a sense of awareness to what you’re doing to your audio signal!

But an interesting point I’d like to share with you is that compression can actually be used for more than just audio leveling. (When you make loud parts of the signal more consistent with the quieter parts.)

Compression can also be used to mold/shape your sound!

The other tutorial I mentioned in this video was an older video of mine called What Does Compression Actually Do?

It should give you an idea of what a compressor allows us as producers/mixers to achieve out of the tool!

Anyways, here’s some ways you can use compression.

Compression Techniques

  • Audio Leveling (Making the signal more consistent throughout the track.)
  • Molding/Shaping your sound with the attack/release knobs (Like shown in this tutorial!)
  • Sidechain Compression (Reducing the volume of one track whenever a certain track plays. Example – When kick drum will play, the volume of the bassline will reduce in volume, then return to normal volume when the kick drum is done playing.)

Hope you liked this one! 😉
