Multiplier welcomes you and goes over what the series is all about.
Discover what is compression, and what are dynamics, as well as why do we compress sounds.
This video explains why compression is talked about so much in the music production world. Basically, real life sounds are more dynamic than we would like for electronic music.
Learn all about limiters, the simplest type of compressor.
Learn how a compressor works (attack, release, ratio, threshold), and see and hear a simple example of it in action.
Develop an understanding of what compression "ratio" actually does.
Attack time is the most important parameter. Learn about this, as well as compressor "makeup gain".
Compressors often make mistakes, and so it can be useful to combine makeup gain, and limiters. Multiplier shows you how.
Learn how to set release time, by understanding what happens when it's too fast, and too slow.
Compressors don't do exactly what you tell them to do. This video shows three examples. Attack/release times, Ableton's Glue compressor, and a limiter that doesn't "limit".
Multiplier explains what this is, and why it's so powerful, by explaining how we hear different frequencies, differently.
Discover how "analog" compressors saturate, and how they can also be a bit unpredictable.
Here, Multiplier gives three examples showing how you shouldn't view every situation, as an opportunity to use a compressor.
Multiplier discusses why you must be careful when compressing inconsistent audio, such as reverb!
Quite simply, how much should you compress? Multiplier reveals all.
Learn how it can sometimes be better to use distortion, instead of compression to tame signals - usually on drums or basses.
Multiplier gives you an introduction to gates.
Wrapping it up, Multiplier delivers an introduction to transient shapers, and how again, they don't always work as expected.
Adam Pollard aka Multiplier, now focuses on Dynamics and Compressors and how they’re used in the Electronic Music genre to tame signals as well as create interesting effects and colors.
Adam begins by welcoming you and then starts at the beginning, covering what compression and dynamic processors are, as well as why you would want to use them.
Limiters are then looked at and explained, followed by the basic controls found on compressors and limiters such as ratio, attack time & make up gain, release time and more.
Next, Multiplier covers why each compressor behaves differently, how to utilize input high pass filtering for better compression, saturating with analog compressors, and how to compress inconsistent audio.
Lastly, you’ll learn things like how much compression you should really apply, how to use distortion as a compressor, understanding gates, and the basics of transient shapers.
