Your audio journey – Part 34 – Compression Part 6

Today we’re looking at multiband compression. So far we’ve looked at single-band compression using either the single-band compressor, the dynamics compressor or dynamics processing.

This time we’re looking at multiband compression. As its name suggests it compresses different parts of the audio depending on defined frequency bands.

Be careful where in your production you use the multiband compressor. It’s a powerful tool that’s more than capable of over compressing your audio production.

In the video I take you through using the presets and setting your own multiband compressor but unless you know what you’re doing with your audio my top tip is stick to the presets and use it sparingly.
