Description

Compression is one of the most essential aspects of producing music, ensuring tracks have consistent dynamics and loudness levels that meet professional standards. On this comprehensive course from Senior Tutor Rob Jones, you’ll learn the main principles behind the technique, plus a tonne of different methods for how to apply it.
The course begins with a demonstration of how compression affects an audio signal, before moving into a series of lessons covering each of the main parameters. Once the theory is covered, Rob moves into his first realtime Compression Session, starting work on the course project by showing how to process the snare and leads.
The second half of the course then focuses on more advanced techniques, including sidechain options, peak and RMS detection, parallel processing and multi-band compression. Again, after the theory is explained, Rob develops each technique further in another realtime Compression Session.
Signing up to the course provides instant access to 3 hours of streamed tutorials, as well as the projects and samples featured in them, plus written notes to refer to and assist in the learning process. There is even an included assessment, complete with listening exercises to help with technical ear training.

Course Director at Producertech Ltd
Rob has been fully immersed in music since a very early age, having played a number of instruments and being involved in professional musical theatre, choral and operatic organisations throughout his youth. He is a classically trained musician, with piano as his primary instrument, and obtained a degree in music and sound recording (the prestigious Tonmeister course) from the University of Surrey. During the emergence of big beat in the late nineties, Rob focussed increasingly on electronic music, beginning to dabble in production and becoming a resident DJ at various nightclubs. Having honed his skills both at University and in the studios in London where he carried out technical work, a unique style of production of predmoninantly breaks and house began to evolve. A number of tracks were released on various labels, including Lot49, Dead Famous and Erase, under the artist name Anarchy Rice. Rob has been at the forefront of music software training since the very beginning, having kicked things off at Focusrite back in 2006. After leaving the company, he helped to set up Producertech Ltd., namely by creating online schools for Live, Logic and Reason, and then a string of courses on other music software programs. With both classical music and technical sound qualifications, as well as a wealth of presenting experience, he is ideally suited to the role of an online music trainer, and is 100% dedicated to sharing his knowledge and assisting others with what he believes to be one of the most rewarding things in life – making music!
