How To Hear Compression On A Mix

Hearing Compression

Mix bus compression is often used to bring a cohesiveness to a mix, sometime called "glue", so the instruments and vocals gel together in a recognisable way, giving the sound of a professionally mixed record.

The disadvantage is that is over compressing your mix, if you can't hear its affect, will make it sound flat, one dimensional and boring.

In this video, I want to provide a level of ear training that guides you on four specific areas to listen out for when applying mix bus compression, that will help you achieve control of the transients, enhancement of tone without losing width or depth from your mix.
