How To Hear Compression

View Course

So, you’re watching a tutorial when the tutor says - “Here’s what it sounds like when it’s on, and here’s what it sounds like when it’s off.” and you hear no difference whatsoever!

Compression can be very subtle, but in this super-useful video, Bluffmunkey shows us how to hear and see what a compressor is actually doing to the incoming sound and how we can utilise compression for different tasks.
Using three different examples, we look at how you can use compression to make punchier kicks, level out dynamic signals, and enhance reverb tails.
