    Overcoming Latency

    Delay, also known as latency, is a by-product of digital conversion and processing. Knowing how to deal with this groove-killing fact of life is a large part of advanced engineering workflow.

    EQ & Compression

    The two most common processors used in music production are EQs and compressors. These powerful tools can add punch, definition, and vibrancy to your recordings and mixes.

    Time-Based Processors

    Reverbs and delays add an extra dynamic layer of emotion and movement to a recording. Knowing the differences between the two, and how common parameters operate, will take your productions to the next level.

    Serial vs. Parallel Processing

    At the very top of an engineer's bag of tricks is setting up serial and parallel processors. Knowing the difference between the two and how to set them up can both maximize DSP and give you the ability to mix and deliver your resources in a professional manner.

Product Overview


EQs, compressors, pitch shifters, transient shapers, reverbs, and delays are just a few of the powerful tools an engineer may use while recording and mixing. Knowing how to use these powerful analog and digital processors is key to achieving great results when recording and mixing.

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by from Fairly helpful A good overview of this subject but sometimes I would like to have more in depth and not so fast explanations. Also drop the background music - big minus. When you look at the whole series and several episodes after each other it becomes really annoying. Why do you need background music!!

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Well done but very short and only useful for newbies It would be easy to not recommend this video but I have to remind myself who the intended audience is, i.e. people have pretty much no signal processing experience as it relates to audio recording. (If you do have any experience, e.g. you know what a Distressor is, the series won't help at all.) For newbies, the series could be useful because it gives a very quick overview of all the most common types of processing (EQ, compressing, etc.) and the explanations are clear and professionally presented. I'm only deducting half a star because the videos are very short, not because of their introductory level. Audios

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by from Glorified Infomercial There is some content here, particularly if you want a first look at compression, but the focus seems more on promoting plug-ins.
