    Engineering tip of the day: how to nicely tighten up a drumsound and suck out reverb out of it? By downward expansion.
    Multiband Dynamics in Ableton Live is great for that, but any multiband dynamics device with gate or downward expansion abilities will do.


    Hear it in action (notice I'm using the below thresholds and ratios): https://www.instagram.com/p/BHxY2W1jy4O/?taken-by=jannehatula
