Compression: Learn Reason 9: The Basics
Compression: Learn Reason 9: The Basics

Audio compression can be used as an effect, such as the popular sidechain compression effects used in electronic dance music. An audio compressor can also be used as a utility to fix problems in a mix, such as instruments jumping out from a mix due to suddenly loud transients. Compression can also be used to smooth out a vocal recording so that lyrics sung too quietly do not disappear from a mix, and lyrics sung too loudly do not overpower a mix. Matt Piper, audio engineer and songwriter, shows you how to apply slight compression to individual tracks in a mix using the channel strip compressor in the mixer in Reason 9. Piper also demonstrates how the Pulveriser virtual rack effect in Reason can be used to make drums sound bigger.
