    If you've been trying to figure out where to start when it comes to compression, vocals inparticular, then don't feel left out because compression is just one of those mixing tools that is a life long discovery. Even though every engineer approaches the compressor differently, the fact remains is that they have a concept or idea or what the are trying to achieve even before the engage the compressor. In this video I show you the approach I use (the most) when I use a limiter, and I use it a lot. Keep in mind that a little bit goes a long way!! Enjoy.

    Vocal Mixing For Pros - Using EQ, Compression and FX | Featuring Michael Johns


    This is how I approach how to mix a vocal in a track from top to bottom. I discuss spot EQing, De-essing, Compression, EQ, Dealing with Sibilance, Harshness and using Effects like Reverb, and Delays. I am demonstrating with a demo I did with my dear friend Michael Johns, an Australian singer that performed on American Idol in 2008. He finished in 8th place and died unexpectedly in 2014 at the age of 35 of dilated cardiomyopathy. He was a dear friend and one of the best human beings I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He is greatly missed by his friends, family and his lovely wife Stacey.

    Mixing Basics: Vocal Compression - Warren Huart: Produce Like A Pro


    ➡️➡️Learn more about Vocal Compression here:

    Today, we will be going over the basics of mixing vocals. Earlier, we balanced the mix using just panning and volume and got the mix to a place where we could start making better decisions. In this video, we are going to look at some really subtle ways you can make your vocals sit better in the mix using just compression and automation. In Pro Tools, this automation could be “clip automation”, but it could also be volume automation in your DAW.

    Most people will use compression to color the sound, and to make sure it is always in the front of the mix. There are three ways you can do this: using compression or serial compression, clip gain/volume automation, or using a limiter, which can help bring out the personality in the track as well. Be careful when you are using clip gain or volume automation, as you want to make sure you are not exaggerating things that you will have to edit out later!

    Compression Basics: 1176 into LA-2A on Vocals + CL1-B on Keyboards


    // The first in a series of videos on compression. This one covers controlling vocal level with an 1176 into an LA-2A and compressing keyboards with a CL1-B // 5 Things to Listen for When Using Compression:

    More compression videos from Ian Vargo:


    Hello, Ian Vargo here with The Pro Audio Files.

    Today is the first in a five part video series on compression. We recently released an article on the five things to listen for when using a compressor, and first up is one of the most common uses for compressors, which is the control of dynamics and taming peaks.

    So firstly, let's take a look and listen to this vocal performance. We've got a good amount of dynamic range, a relatively quiet level in the verse. It's a little bit louder as we enter the chorus, and then at the end of the chorus, we have a climax in amplitude, so to speak.

    Let's take a listen.


    Let's move forward to the chorus.


    So the goal here is to bring the level of the verses a little bit closer to the level in the choruses, and to also — there are a couple of lines that really poke out in my mind, particularly, “Wrap my” just seems a little bit like it's sticking out more than the rest of the lines.

    So what we're going to do is apply the classic 1176 into an LA-2A technique.

    Let's activate the 1176. I've got a pretty fast attack and fast release time, and I'm going to set my input and output to a point where the loudest parts of the vocal performance are brought down, but the quietest parts are not affected.

    Let's take a listen to the verse.


    Let's move forward to the chorus.


    Okay, so as you can hear, when the vocal gets really loud and expressive, we have compression being applied.

    What you're hearing now is only a piece of the final puzzle. It does sound a little bit quiet. We are going to use the LA-2A — the gain feature here — to bring up the overall level and use the peak reduction — I'm going to set it to a point where we have about — between one and up to three dB at any given moment.

    Let's take a listen with the two together.


    And let's move forward.


    Alright, so what we're hearing is definitely a smoother, more even vocal performance. Sometimes when you have a lot of compression applied, sibilant sounds, like this right here, I believe it's a D, let's take a listen.


    I'll show you what I did.

    I automated volume and clip gain, because sometimes, when you apply a lot of compression to a source, sibilant sounds become extra harsh.


    That really pops out.

    So what I'm doing is zooming in a little bit, using clip gain to bring it down about five dB, and then volume automating down a couple dB as well, and it sounds smoother.


    Alright, so as you can hear, this is definitely a tried and true technique for a reason. We have the 1176 taming the highest of peaks, and the LA-2A giving some general compression and overall smoothness to the signal the entire time.

    Next, I'm going to show you how to use compression to even out the dynamics of a keyboard part.

    Let's take a listen to this with no compression whatsoever.

    [mix without compression]

    Okay, it sounds nice, but there are a couple of notes, a couple of phrases that seemed to poke out a little bit to me. They stick out of the mix and sound less pleasant in comparison to everything else.

    In particular, right here and right here just seem to pop out a little bit.

    So I'm going to use compression to tame those transients. Let's take a listen.

    We've got the TubeTech CL-1B, which is a collaboration between Softube and Universal Audio. It's one of my go-to compressors, because it's versatile and it works quickly.

    Let's take a listen.


    So if we pay attention to the settings, I've got a relatively fast attack. I want some of the transient to be allowed through the compressor, but I want to catch it pretty quickly.

    Let's take a listen to what it would sound like if I had a slow attack.

    [slow attack compression]

    And if I had an all the way fast attack...

    [fast attack compression]

    It starts to sound a little bit pumpy and unnatural, so I dialed in a setting I was happy with.

    I'm using a relatively slow release for the purpose of — if you look at the waveform, the sustain and the decay happen a little bit too quickly, so I wanted to even it out and make the note seem like it sustained a little bit more, so I used a pretty slow release to help emulate that effect.

    I've got about a five to one ratio, and the threshold and gain are both set to the default settings, whatever they were when I loaded up the plug-in, which is one of the reasons I like this so much is it just works so quickly.

    #11.1 - How to Compress Vocals (Sand Paper Theory) [1/4]

    Song: AMiR - Lost in Love

    Hopefully I was articulate enough in this video. I was trying my best to explain the way I view the Sand Paper Theory. The premise is that I use compression almost like a piece of sand paper where I'm trying to smooth the edges so it is a bit easier for the ear to find it. Also I'm trying to enhance the sound a bit to make it more musical while not taking too much away from the original dynamics. After all the dynamics are what make music exciting. You don't have to just use this technique on vocals alone, but you can use it on whatever you want.

    Do not attempt this until you fully understand the consequences of what you are getting yourself in to.

    There is a very specific way to train for this with I discuss in my video.

    There are those out there, willing to sell you a course or give you the green light to make this jump without proper training.

    Even Superman is not that stupid.

    We just understand how to get to this kind of hyper glottal compression safely so we don't destroy our voices.

    How to create an aggressive and dirty vocal using distortion, compression and more.

    Song: 'It Would Be Nice' by Zak Morris:

    - Avid Pro Tools
    - AIR Vintage Filter
    - AIR Distortion
    - Waves CLA-76 Compressor Limiter
    - Waves Renaissance Vox Vocal Compressor
    - Waves Renaissance Equalizer



    Hey, folks. Matthew Weiss here. I am going to be talking about distortion, so let's check out this record. So, there's a lot of distortion going on and it's all being used in somewhat different ways. Some of it's subtle, some of it's fairly obvious. I have a lot of plugins going on here, but as I bring them in they're going to start making more sense. So, let's just check out the vocal by itself.

    So the vocal is, you know, its, its not clean because it hasn't been polished up, but it's fairly non-aggressive. So, the first thing I'm throwing on here, because I know I already have in my mind that I want this to be an edgy sounding vocal. So, even while I'm just doing my basic high- pass to get out some of the low-end rumble, instead of using a regular high-pass filter, I'm using this vintage filter, this air vintage filter.

    So, it already is adding some degree of slight amount of fuzz and also a little bit of compression from this little fat, I don't even really know what this thing does, it's like a little distortion thing going on here. So, that's my start right off the bat. Then I'm using the air digital distortion here, which is also a stock plugin. All of these are stock plugins here up until the next part. So it just adds a little bit of what I like to call hair. It's just a little touch of fuzz and as you can see the drive is only about 3 db, it's very slight, but its the slight difference that makes the big difference.

    So you hear it poke-out on 'running' a little more and I actually have it automated throughout the record so that at certain points it becomes a lot more audible. So, its getting more distorted at key points. Like for example right here. So, I'm using that for effect. Anyway, the reason why these are on first, the first two plugins is I'm basically sort of reinventing the original sound of the vocal. The next plugins that I'm using are the actual processing. So, pulling in at 1176 for compression.

    It's not a pretty-sounding compression, but I don't want a pretty-sounding compression, I want a very in-your-face flat-lining compression and then I'm using R-Vox after that, mostly for tone. The vocal is already very heavily compressed. So, in a way it almost adds more dynamic to it.

    And now I've got something that I'm digging, I just need to basically open it up a little bit, so I'm doing a presence-boost at 1.7 and then I'm doing a top-end boost. So, the reason it looks like there's so many plugins on this is because my first two, three plugins here are sort of just reinventing the vocal sound to begin with. What I'm basically trying to do is emulate the idea that it was tracked through a board or through a tape-machine too hot and that's going to give me the vocal sound that I want.
