Join Matt Piper for an in-depth discussion in this video Using compression, part of Up and Running with Reason 7.
Now I'd like to take a look at compression in Reason and there are several options.…Every channel in the mixer has a compressor.…You can see the dynamics section here at the top.…And on the far right there is the master…compressor, sometimes also referred to as the master bus compressor.…And there's also a rack unit compressor.…The M class compressor.…And there's not one of them that's better than the other two.…They all have different sets of controls, different characters, and different uses.…
But in general, what a compressor does…is it compresses or reduces the dynamic range.…It reduces the difference in signal level between the loudest…portion of the signal and the softest portion of the signal.…And often…its used simply to control a signal like,…for instance if your drummer sometimes was hitting…his snare very quickly and sometimes very loud,…so during the song sometimes you couldn't hear the…snare drum very well and other times it…jumped out and distracted you from the rest of…the mix, you might use a compressor to sort of reign that in and even it out.…
