In this first installment of the Foundations of Audio series, author Brian Lee White shows how to improve the sound of a mix with compressors, limiters, gates, de-essers, and other dynamic processors. The course explains the fundamentals of sound waves, and amplitude, explores common compressor controls, and shows how to eliminate unwanted noise using gates and expanders. The course also demonstrates best practices in compression and limiting in a variety of audio applications and covers sculpting the attack and decay of individual notes with transient shapers and applying frequency specific dynamics control with multiband compressors. Exercise files accompany the course and include special Get in the Mix session files.
If you're a Premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library or if you're watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM, you also have access to the raw audio material used to create the exercise content, as well as all other audio examples featured throughout the course. Inside the Exercise Files folder, you'll find the folder for each chapter, containing the WAV files used throughout the course. These files can be imported into your own digital audio workstation and used to follow along with the material. If you're a Monthly member or Annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to the raw audio files, but you can follow along from scratch with your own assets.
For members at all subscription levels, I have provided you with guided exercise content in the form of a Get in the Mix demonstration session that you can open up in your own DAW. Watch the video about the Get in the Mix content to learn more about this unique learning experience. Let's get started.
