All About Compression
Ready to take your compression skills to the next level? In this All About Compression course Audio Czar takes on more advanced information about compression. You will explore advanced compressor controls such as mix, knee, and side chain.
If you’ve taken the Audio Czar Basics of Compression course then consider this course the next step in your education.
Learn everything about compression from different types of compressors to different compression techniques.
By sharing some of his knowledge of 15 plus years in audio, Czar’s course will teach you the following:
- Different compressor types
- compression techniques
- Multi band compression
- De-essing and how to set a de-esser
- choosing the right compressor
- parallel compression
- serial compression
- side chain compression
- using automation with compression
- how to set a compressor for general compression
- how to set a compressor for mix bus compression
- classic compressors and how to use them
Anyone taking this course should have a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) with a compressor plugin so they can go over and practice these techniques. The DAW being used in this course Presonus Studio One. However the DAW you use is not important, as all DAW’s will come with a compressor.
Who Is This Course For?
- People understanding the basic of compression but want to take the next step in learning compression
- Anyone wanting to learn advanced compression techniques such as parallel compression and side chain compression
- Anyone wanting to learn how to use classic compressors such as the La2a and the 1176
- Anyone wanting to learn how to use bus compression
In All About Compression I will cover the different types of compressors, different kinds of compressors, uses for different type of compressors, classic compressors and how to use them, and much more.

About Your Tutor
I’ve been engineering for over 15 years now, and in that time I’ve gotten to use a lot of different compressors. The more you use and learn about compressors the more the confident you will become in using them.
This course will help boost that confidence.
Czar was born in Nashville, but got his musical roots while being raised in Memphis. He worked for a few studios in Memphis as well as owning his own recording studio called the Kremlin.
In 2000 Czar founded Throneholder Productions, a production company for hip-hop, R&B, pop, and dance music. After years of producing independent artist, Czar later returned to Nashville to pursue a BA in audio production from the Art Institute of Tennessee Nashville, which he received with honors.
During school he began to focus on engineering and mixing, which is where he finds most of his work since moving to Nashville.
When he’s not busy in a studio engineering or in the Kremlin mixing, Czar spends his spare time researching gear, blogging about audio, writing gear reviews, and posting helpful tutorial videos online to help others learn.
