Compression Explained – From Fundamentals To Technical Use

A focused video course that explains and demonstrates essential compressors and compression techniques.

Compression – easy in theory but difficult in practice. In fact, it’s downright overwhelming! So many tools that promise to make your mix standout and tutorials and courses that promise to have you “master the art of compression in under an hour!” It’s no wonder that compression is one of our most requested course topics.

Here’s the truth: the only way to learn how to actually use compression is to understand the fundamentals and to train your ears to hear what your actions are doing to the sound. Which is exactly what you’ll learn in this course (and why we called it) “Compression Explained”

12 Comprehensive Videos – 1.5 Hours of Expert Tuition! Build Your Skills On a Solid Foundation.



Press pause on buying the latest plugins and feeling inadequate in online forums, the best investment you can make when it comes to making music is in yourself.

With the right knowledge and training you can give your creative talents the freedom to shine. Whether you sit on the spectrum from hobbyist to professional leaning and being reminded of these fundamentals is essential to getting your music to sound just the way you want it to.

In this video series you’ll go from first understanding the basic terms, to hearing, seeing and understanding the different types of compressors to then putting them to real use.

The course uses a range of compressors to demonstrate the theory but to get started all you really need is your DAW and the most important tool – your ears!

If you’ve ever felt like you missed the class on compressors and compression techniques, do your self a favour and watch this course!
