Ready to take your compression skills to the next level? In my All About Compression course I move on to more advanced information about compression. I will go over advanced compressor controls such as mix, knee, and side chain. If you've taken my basics of compression course then consider this course the next step to continue learning about compression. In All About Compression I will cover the different types of compressors, different kinds of compressors, uses for different type of compressors, classic compressors and how to use them, and much more. I also go over different compressor techniques and examples of use. This course will expand your capabilities with a compressor and introduce you to new ways of how to use them. I've been engineering for over 15 years now, and in that time I've gotten to use a lot of different compressors. And I've gotten to know some compressors very well. The more you use and learn about compressors the more the confident you will become in using them. And this course should help boost that confidence. Because all compressors are different it can be difficult to find the right compressor the job. I will go over my approach to choosing a compressor for a track. Anyone taking this course should have a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) with a compressor plugin so they can go over and practice these techniques. The DAW being used in this course Presonus Studio One. However the DAW you use is not important, as all DAW's will come with a compressor. By sharing some of my knowledge of 15 plus years in audio this course will teach you the following:

All About Compression Quiz
Czar was born in Nashville, but got his musical roots while being raised in Memphis. He worked for a few studios in Memphis as well as owning his own recording studio called the Kremlin. In 2000 Czar founded Throneholder Productions, a production company for hip-hop, R&B, pop, and dance music. After years of producing independent artist, Czar later returned to Nashville to pursue a BA in audio production from the Art Institute of Tennessee Nashville, which he received with honors. During school he began to focus on engineering and mixing, which is where he finds most of his work since moving to Nashville. When he's not busy in a studio engineering or in the Kremlin mixing, Czar spends his spare time researching gear, blogging about audio, writing gear reviews, and posting helpful tutorial videos online to help others learn.
