    Hello everybody !

    I've been teaching audio production for the last few years and one of the topics that seems really hard to understand is : compression.

    I am starting a little blog series sharing material that was originally intended for my students about compression and others tricky aspects of audio engineering.

    I am trying to be as clear as possible in the explanations, have a look and let me know what you think !

    Cheers, Nicolo

    Nice little write up there, I tend to use multiband compression and glue compressors quite alot but where I can avoid them I will

    Glad to hear that ! Ableton's glue compressor is a great tool especially as bus compressor more than on singles sounds imo, multiband compression is amazing but really tricky , it takes a while to use it properly.. especially because it works both in tone and dynamic ! I'll write something about limiters and particular types of compressor soon !

    I posted this a while ago which always helps with the terminology.
