    Hello guys!, i just wanted to show and explain a concept used a lot in the neuro scene (Sine compression).

    Pretty much it is nothing new or special, it is just compressing the hell out of a sine wave until it distorts .. which is basically distortion. However, what makes it better that way, is the idea of adding ways of filtering before and after every compressor. It literally gives awesome results.

    here is an example i did yesterday:)



    If you did one, please share it here and explain how u did it!

    Really nice sounding bass! you say every compressor... You're compressing multiple times in your example?
