After a close look at the sidechain feature available in all the compressors, Scottie wraps up the compression chapter by exploring the roll of each of the compressors in the mastering process, and how a Limiter is really just a special kind of compressor.

Clear and well explained
There are many courses on compression in various flavours, but I have not found one that clearly explain the audio effects in Ableton. Because compression and EQ is the bread and butter of any audio mixing it is the most important to understand fully. The course is clear and consise and explains all the details required to fully understand the compression and EQ effects in Ableton. Great course.
