In Part 3 – the final part – of this compression mini-series, part of the ongoing Mixing Tips series, we take a look at stacking compressors and also at parallel compression on drums. I hope you find it helpful! Please feel free to comment on the video with any questions you may have about the two compression techniques shown.

Continuing our compression mini-series within our Mixing Tips Series, in today’s video, we take a look at the somewhat mysterious knee setting in the Studio One Compressor, and we also explore the concept of mix buss compression.
In today’s Mixing Tips Series video, we will examine the basics of compression, how it works, and see a little of it in action. The following parts will go into more depth and show compression in action in a variety of different contexts in mixing.
In today’s video, we look at sending tracks from Studio One directly to Dropbox via the Browser inside Studio One. This is really useful and fast, and especially valuable to session musicians for sending and receiving tracks and guide tracks, without ever having to leave Studio One!
Today’s video looks at further EQ moves beyond high pass filtering, allowing your tracks to breathe and separate, even when collapsed to mono. (I highly recommend mixing in mono!)
Check it out! I hope you find it helpful!
In today’s Songwriting Tip Series video, I give some advice on what to do if you find yourself struggling with a song, or struggling with starting a song. I hope you find it helpful!
If you are new to mixing, you may never have heard of routing a bunch of selected tracks to a single bus, and how incredibly helpful and powerful for mixing it is. If this describes you, then today’s video in my Mixing Tips Series is for YOU!
I hope you find it helpful!
While clicking through some audio-related videos on YouTube, I came across the following video of a song recording session, that took place, NOT in an expensive studio, NOT with expensive gear, but in the least likely place……a car! This guy recorded his song using a USB mic into a 7 year old laptop into a free DAW called Audacity. He videoed each session and edited it together to make the video. He mixed the song using stock or free plugins in a cheap $60 DAW (Reaper) in the basement of his house.
The results are astounding! The lyrics hilariously describe the process and reasons for recording the song in the car.
So what does this prove?
It proves, once again, that it is NOT about the gear, it is NOT about the space; it IS about a great song, and it IS about great performances captured well with the gear you have!! You don’t need expensive gear, or an expensive studio space to make a great sounding record. All you need is a GREAT song, GREAT performances and YOUR skills and dexterity in capturing and mixing! NOTHING MORE!
Enjoy the video! GO check out the creator’s you tube channel. He has LOADS of good audio stuff there!
This event is going to be AWESOME! I am involved in it, along side the guys from Studio One Expert and the leader of the Development Team of Studio One, Mr Arnd Kaiser. If you are in Edinburgh, or can get to Edinburgh and are interested in, or a user of, Studio One, bag yourself a free ticket and even a free drink on the day! It would be great to meet some other UK Studio One folks!
