Well here it is finally. Features some wonderful acoustic guitar performed by Ireland's Stephen Cooney, recorded here at ToKwerX for the debut album of PEARL, Rose Bygrave & Marcia Howard. Study notes available via a link on the chapter title on my Webinars page.
I promised ages ago that I would put together a "Webinar" on the use of Dynamics; namely Compression and Limiting. Most engineers I work with state "gee you use a lot of compression." Well yes, but no more than is absolutely necessary. That's not to say large amounts of gain reduction, just several stages of it. It's all about control first. Dynamics as an effect comes later and most often not at all. The Webinar will focus upon the 3 stages of dynamics usage: Recording, Track & Buss, Mix Buss. I'll do my best to have this up in a week - stay tuned.
