We start with an introduction to FabFilter plug-ins and provide an overview of of all the fabFilter plug-ins.
Here, you'll gain information about Pro-DS such as how oversampling helps improve the sonic quality of plug-ins. Additionally, we look at the UI and where things are and how the various parameters work to reduce sibilance; in particular how to focus in on problematic areas.
Pro-DS with Vocal Track9:34
We continue by looking at Pro-DS on a vocal track. We look at the 'audition' and 'monitor' buttons to help isolate sibilance. By using the Hi-Pass and Low-Pass filters, sibilance can be isolated more easily.
Pro-DS with Backing Vocals10:20
Using Pro-DS on the master output, we look at de-essing sibilance using the stereo link dial to attenuate either the main stereo image or, alternatively, the MID/SIDE areas. Also, we look at the mode options.
Pro-DS External Sidechaining6:47
We now look at using external sidechaining to trigger Pro-DS to get an external audio source to trigger the de-essing process. We also consider using the 'Lookahead' option.
Pro-C User Interface7:55
To get familiar with Pro-C, here, we will take a tour of the UI. We also discuss compression rules and how the plug-in provides all the tools required to compress in different ways.
Pro-C in Action6:31
We put Pro-C into action inserted on a snare track so that we can see how the metering and animated visual display provide essential information to help determine how much compression occurs. We try out different parameter settings too to audition different compression types on the audio.
Pro-C Parallel Compression4:35
We now blend the original signal with the compressed version to create parallel compression to achieve a more dynamic and energetic compression.
Pro-C Expert Mode8:22
By revealing the 'Expert Mode' panel, we now focus in on specific frequency ranges and the various dial parameters available. We also look at processing one side more than the other of a stereo image.
Pro-C Mid/Side Introduction3:03
We conclude by looking at mid/side processing as a drum group channel is sent to the main output buss.
Pro-G Gating Overview9:45
We look at the Pro-G UI to determine where the many parameters are and how they work to gate audio.
Pro-G In Action3:46
We start by gating as much of the mic spill from a snare track as possible whilst still retaining 'life'.
Pro-G Vocal Gating3:40
We take Pro-G to a more extreme setting now to gate unnecessary sound from a vocal track. We won't remove all the 'dead air; instead we reduce it so it still sounds natural.
Pro-L Limiting Introduction4:50
Pro-L is introduced here as we tour the UI to establish where things are and how the parameters operate in conjunction to 'limit' the audio sent through it.
Pro-L on SubMix4:12
By running a sub-mix through Pro-L, we can understand better how the animated visual display provides clear information about what the processing is doing to the output sound. We also look at choosing different styles to maximize the audio.
More Pro-L Details8:23
We conclude by looking at further parameter functions such as Channel Linking, ISP, Lookahead, Oversampling, Meter Options and Dither.
Pro-Q First Look6:23
A tour of the UI is taken here to introduce Pro-Q and where things are. We look at adding multiple frequency points and ranges to adapt an audio file.
Pro-Q - Finding Sweet Spots8:02
We look at using multiple instances of Pro-Q to ascertain where overlapping frequency ranges occur on different audio tracks. From this point, we then cut or boost to help the individual tracks sit in a mix better.
Pro-Q Mid Side6:06
By looking at the mid/side options, we process audio here to sculpt the sonics so that frequency areas are tightened up. We look at using different slope settings with various EQ cut settings.
Pro-MB User Interface8:07
Pro-MB is introduced here as we look around the UI to establish where things are and how the parameters are used to compress multiple bands of audio.
Pro-MB In Action7:44
Audio is run through Pro-MB to see how further sculpt the sonic qualities of the track. The different ways in which the distinct bands are processed are examined. We also discuss the Compress and Expand options too to achieve different results from the same audio.
Pro-MB - More Functions3:45
To conclude our look at Pro-MB, we look here at various shortcuts and parameter settings not seen so far.

Good overall tutorial
Is a very good overview of some of the most important plugins in a beginner friendly way although I would personally prefer that the instructor wouldn't take that much time explaining very small details.
