Working with multi-band compression

Remember how I said a De-Esser was like a frequency specific compressor working only on the sibilant sounds within a track or a mix? Well, a multiband compressor follows the same idea but works across the entire frequency range. By splitting up the compression into multiple parts or bands, an engineer can focus dynamic control within a specified frequency range, leaving other frequencies untouched. So, let me give you a little bit of an example. Pro Tools doesn't come with any multiband compressors.

So, I'm going to bring up the Wave C4 and what I have here is basically four compressors split up into four different bands I can see the graphic shows me the low-band, the mid-band and two high- bands here, and I can adjust the those. And then I have settings, my typical compressor settings for each one of those bands. So, I have a threshold for the low band, I have an Attack and Release and I also have a Range controller.

It sort of defines the maximum amount of gain reduction that...
