Dear Home Studio Owner,
Let’s face it, compression can be a huge source of frustration. How many times have you spent hours trying to compress track, only to walk away, scratching your head, wondering why it doesn’t sound better?
I’ve been there, and you should know that you don’t have to stay there. After many hours and countless cups of coffee, I have learned how to use compressions effectively, and I want to help you learn this valuable mixing skill.
I’ll shoot straight with you. I’m making an offer to you today. Understanding Compression isn’t free, but I believe the training you’ll receive will be far more valuable than the price you’ll pay. In fact,
Do any of these describe you?
You need a starting point. With Understanding Compression, I will walk you through the compression process. You’ll walk away with a more complete understanding of
I ended up purchasing the understanding compression series and watched it this morning. I was blown away by the clear, concise explanations, but most of all by the examples. I already knew all the dials on a compressor and had a good grasp on how they sounded, but you plugging them into your own (excellent) mixes was extremely informative.
My name is Joe Gilder. I’m a recording engineer in Nashville, TN. I run the popular home recording website HomeStudioCorner.com, where I help thousands of home studio owners like yourself get better recordings.
Understanding Compression consists of 5 videos (over 2 hours of content). These are high-definition full-screen videos, where I walk you through everything as if you were sitting with me in my studio.
This first video sets the stage for Understanding Compression. In this short presentation, I’ll help you understand what compression is an why we use it.
It’s easy to sit down in front of a compressor and quickly become overwhelmed by all the knobs and settings. In this video I’ll teach you what each component of the compressor does, and why it’s important.
For example, do you ever use the attack knob on a compressor? It can have a dramatic effect on how the compressor sounds. By adjusting this one knob, you can go from a tight, heavily compressed signal to a punchy, in-your-face signal.
This video alone is worth the price of admission, as I teach you in-depth about every component on the compressor.
The BEST thing you can do to help you master compression is to spend time learning what it actually sounds like. You’d be surprised how much you don’t know about compression.
In this video, I’ll teach you how to use your DAW software as a compression-learning tool. Compression causes all sorts of interesting things to happen to the audio. In this video you’ll learn what to listen for. With a little ear training, you’ll be able to quickly pick out compression whenever you listen to a mix.
Whether you’re listening to a CD, mp3, or the radio, you’ll soon find yourself saying things like “They used a little too much compression on the acoustic guitar,” and “The lead vocal could use a little more compression to get it to sit in the mix.”
Once you’ve mastered ear training, we take the next step. I’ll share with you the step-by-step approach that I use whenever I use compression on anything.
If you master the technique you learn in this video, you’ll be able to walk up to any session and start compressing with confidence, regardless of what instruments you’re mixing.
In the final video, we take everything we learned in the first four videos and apply it to several real-world examples. We’ll walk through several different songs, and I’ll show you how to quickly and easily compress various tracks.
Just for the record, love your work. I have purchased your video series on EQ and Compression and find your instructional style excellent, very clear, and aimed right at my level. You have given me more confidence and helped me to start to ‘hone’ my approach to mixing. I think my mixes are sounding better, so well done and thanks!
When you buy today, you’ll get immediate access to the videos. Open up the first video and watch it for 10 minutes. If after 10 minutes you don’t already feel like you’ve gotten more than your money’s worth, I insist that you contact me, and I will promptly and quietly refund every penny of your purchase…no questions asked.
Better yet, take a full 30 days to watch and implement these videos. If within those 30 days you’re unsatisfied, let me know. I’ll issue a full refund.
Hi Joe, Just watched the video series on Understanding Compression. Very impressed, but I am in bit of undecision now. Years ago, I used to perform Close up magic for a living, and there was a saying in the magic world, as I am sure there are in other venues too, that if you buy a book on magic, and get one idea, or one sleight, or one trick out of the book, you got your moneys worth. No matter how much the book cost, or how thick the book is. Now here is my problem, I got at least 5 good ideas, and tips after watching your series, so I feel I need to send you 4 times the amount of money that I already paid. Keep up the great tutorial series, very very informative.
P.S. These videos are downloadable (meaning no streaming video nonsense), and they’re yours to keep…forever.
P.P.S. Don’t forget, there’s absolutely no risk to you. If you don’t like them, let me know within the first 30 days, and I’ll be glad to issue a full refund. (And we can still be friends.)
