Introducing the Becoming a Dynamics Wizard online course.
I feel your pain, I’ve been there! Compression can feel like a dark art but it doesn’t have to be that way. It took me many years of trial-and-error working at top studios before I finally learned the secrets to compression.
Compression can turn a good sounding mix into a truly great, loud and powerful one. In this course I’ll give you the shortcuts to mastering compression without the years of frustration.
Instead of being a source of confusion, this course will turn compression into your biggest strength, so you can mix with confidence.
Becoming a Dynamics Wizard is a 4-week course, split into four sections. To avoid overwhelm and give you time to practice, a new section is unlocked each week.
Week 1: Fundamentals
Learn the fundamentals of dynamic control and how compression can shape a sound.
Week 2: Basic Dynamic Tool Usage
Explore the many different types and techniques of compression and how it can transform any mix.
Week 3: Classic Compressors
Learn the different types of classic compressors used on your favourite albums and how to use them in your own mixes.
Week 4: Dynamics in Practice
Master the use of compression in all major instruments and scenarios to take your mixes to the next level.
Create mixes with the weight, power and punch like your favourite records.
Know how to identify classic compressors and where to use them.
Use dynamics in practice to create stunning, professional mixes.
Good compression use is perhaps the hardest part of mixing, but also what separates amateurs from the professionals.
Dynamic processing makes your mixes bigger, punchier, and livelier. Mastering compression frees you up to mix faster and smarter, giving you much more time to sit back and drink mojitos.
I'll give you the blueprint to compression success and show you solutions to common issues that dynamic processing can fix. Taken from my years of experience as a successful producer and educator at Metropolis and Abbey Road.
This course has downloadable handouts and practice mixes to help your learning.
As a 'living course', it's regularly updated with new videos, free to all course students.
There is also a secret invite-only group ($100 value) where members can discuss topics and findings; not just on dynamics processing but anything regarding music production.
I am so confident that this course covers all you will ever need to know about dynamics processing, that I even offer a custom video guarantee. If you believe a significant topic was not covered, let me know in the group and I will make and add a custom video.
I want to make sure that all of my students are satisfied and gain the tools to compress effectively.
The course has two price tiers, standard $199 and advanced $349.
