Bro, do you even compress?
Your truly on the controls, doing a video for CloudBounce once again, this time going thru parameters of a compressor in context of compressing a song.
Running Octatrack into Heat. You can treat whole songs with it and give them a bit of crunch and color. The filter is great for adding a bit of resonant high sheen, and you can add low beef as well as highs with the EQ. Filter has a nice Dirt feature for extra crunch, too. Me likey! A wish: please give the Heat filter an on/off switch. ???????????????????? @weareelektron #elektron #octatrack #analogheat #analog #bassmusic #studiolife #dnb #drumandbass #drumnbass
A new weekly music production video I did for CloudBounce is up now.
This explains the difference between a compressor and a limiter in terms of handling your song.
This is basic stuff to many, but very many young producers seem to confuse these two, and the result can sometimes sound quite squashed.
In the next episode, I’m covering compressing a song in more detail.
