Please has anyone seen this or read about it. I like you all fam to throw in some lights about this. Thanks. But the reason I focused more on mastering than usual is because my buddy Ian Shepherd just came out with an amazing ebook about Multiband Compression. Mastering with Multiband Compression - the eBook. Mastering with Multiband Compression was my first ever product, and is still one of the most popular.

Mixes that lack stereo information will be worse for that. Typically you could look at boosting a vocal in the kHz range.

If the mix is too dynamic or just needs a little more punch, a couple of dB of gain reduction from a compressor can really help stabilise the mix. Compression can really help in terms of scoring additional headroom and adding gain. If you are not getting the loudness level you want at the limiting stage, go back to your compressor and squeeze it some more rather than digging deeper into your limiter.

Limiters are essentially compressors with super fast attack times and high compression ratios. You might start by setting the ceiling of a limiter to 0dB and then draw down the threshold to meet the audio peaks. The threshold is tied to an auto gain function, so the more you reduce the headroom and dig into the peaks, the more loudness you get back.

However, there is a trade-off here: the more you flatten the peaks, the less dynamic range you end up with. After all, you would think, if you have a limiter in place, you should be fine right?

None shall pass and all that? Well, yes, but there are certain digital processes that are required to smooth audio and in so doing they can add an additional thin layer of gain after the limiter: this could be enough to clip the master buss if your mix is already running right up to the limit.

But the reason I focused more on mastering than usual is because my buddy Ian Shepherd just came out with an amazing ebook about Multiband Compression in Mastering. You might know Ian from his blog, Production Advice.

There he gives away boatloads of great content on how to make your music sound better. Not everyone can go to a professional mastering engineer every time they need to master a song.

The thing about multiband compression is that in the unskilled hands it can really suck the life out of your music. But if you learn how to use it correctly you can create dynamic an punchy records. Man, I really learned a lot from his video.

Reading an ebook can be extremely informative, but seeing his methods in action is such a great way to learn. I have to admit, I had never really given the multiband compressor a chance. Sure, I knew how it worked but it always seemed too complicated to be worth the effort.

I always thought you had to tweak so many parameters to make it do the right things. I really recommend the video.

It was eye-opening to watch him work. After watching his video and reading his book, I approach the multiband compressor in a completely different way. I help musicians and producers make a greater impact with their music by teaching them how to produce and engineer themselves.So in a way, a multiband compressor is sort of like EQ in that you can target certain frequency bands more like a graphic EQ than a parametric EQ in that way.

With this you can process the low end of the mix without even touching the cymbals. By tweaking the individual thresholds, you can make this more subtle, and target it more to sections where it may be needed. Once you do that, you have all the normal compressor controls threshold, ratio, etc.

They have a day trial that is fully functional. Some multibands also include upward compression, where lower-level signals are raised rather than high-level signals being lowered.

Well, if you have a multiband compressor like the one pictured above, which is the iZotope multiband compression plugin that came with Adobe Audition 3 , you can apply compression to JUST the low frequency, bass-y frequencies most compressors operate across the entire frequency spectrum.

Here are some examples: The sheer number of parameters, options and settings confused the hell out of me, and I really struggled to get the results I wanted at first.
