I do try different tools, but I always end up back to this. I use this on everything. The attack and release settings are some of the best I’ve ever found on a compressor.

What’s your go-to plugin?

Do you use compression when working on your DIY music projects? Do you just pull up a plugin and hope for the best? Or do you endlessly tweak k***s with no direction or idea of what to do? Here is a brief, hopefully easy explanation of how to start dialing in compression…

The THRESHOLD sets the point where the compressor will start working. Lower it til you start seeing some some gain reduction.

The RATIO sets how much the compressor compresses at the threshold. Start at a lower threshold and raise it til you hear the desired amount. 2:1 - 4:1 are typical ratios for most scenarios.

The ATTACK and RELEASE settings adjust the timing of the compression. Start w/ attack all the way slow and bring it back til you start to hear it control the transient. Start w/ the release all the way fast and bring it back til it starts to release in time w/ the song.

This is all relative to the song and desired effect, but this will at least get you started learning the main aspects of compression.

What’s your main hang ups on compression? Any favorite compressor plugins?

21/06/2021

When working on your DIY music projects do you struggle w/ getting the EQ right on your individual tracks or the mix as a whole? You’re not alone! Mastering the EQ in your mix can be difficult especially when your listening space is not ideal causing you to doubt each decision you make. Here are some tips on making better EQ decisions…

LEARN YOUR LISTENING SPACE
Spend some time listening to your favorite records in the same space you do your recording/mixing. Take note of where everything lies tonally. Finding a consistent volume to listen to and mix at will help keep things consistent in your head and with your ears. Remember that commercially released records will be a considerable amount louder than your mix volume. A playback level of 75-80db on an spl meter is a decent spot for most home studios.

STUDY THE FREQUENCY SPECTRUM
Although using your ears and being creative is always your best bet, having somewhere to start is not a bad idea. There are tons of frequency charts on the web showing many popular instruments and where they lie on the frequency spectrum. Once you have a rough mix of your song, reference the frequency chart for spots your instruments are lacking or vice versa.

STICK W/ ONE EQ
There are so many plugins available and most likely you have a few available in your DAW already. It is true that not all plugins are created equal and some will get you some great sounds w/ really unique vibe, but until you’ve really got the hang of it just stick with one EQ plugin. Really learn that one plugin and how it sounds(good or bad), what you can do with it, and what your limitations are. This will really help you LEARN instead of putting you on a never ending gear hunt.

What are your EQ techniques? Do you have a go-to EQ plugin?

As a DIY music creator, have you developed a healthy ROUTINE for working on your projects?

I have worked on developing a good routine over the past few months and it has given me so much FREEDOM in my work. It has allowed me the focus to work on specific tasks at specific times. It has given me time for rest and breaks throughout the day. Finally it has given me the ability to say yes or no to things that are BEST for me.

Have you developed a routine that works?
What does your routine enable you to accomplish?
