The Ultimate Compression Handbook

$9.95 Regular price $19.95

Get confident with compression.

Compression is often thought of as this "dark art", a practice requiring you to have years of ancient wisdom passed down by the elders.

This couldn't be farther from the truth.

All you need is a better grasp of the fundamentals of compression. Learning "what to do" is half the battle, but once you've also mastered the "why", you can be deliberate in your actions, and compress with confidence.

This digital handbook takes this exact approach, breaking down compression theory into bite-sized actionable chunks to help you master the tool and make intelligent mix decisions. By the end of the read, your tracks will stand louder and prouder, and be full of energy.

This handbook is perfect for beginner to intermediate producers looking for a refresher on the cardinal principles of compression, and for anyone looking to fast-track their way to better mixes.

What's included?

  • Over 45 full-color pages of compression tips, tricks, and secrets.
  • Breakdowns of when to use certain types of compressors.
  • 20 handy compression cheat sheets and blueprints for various instruments.
  • A section on some of the best compression mindset tips from the pros.

This is everything you need to know about compression, minus the fluff.
