Course Details

For Advanced Dynamics we walk through all of the available dynamic processors, consisting of noise gates, compressors, expanders, limiters, transient designers and de-essers.

You will learn how to use each of these processors, both creatively and to repair problems, and you will also learn the differences between upward and downward compression, feed-forward and feed-back designs, and upward and downard expansion. 

Alongside an in-depth walkthrough of the parameters of each dynamic processor, you will learn how to listen for dynamic manipulation, and how to identify what its doing to your sound.
