Don't miss the advanced techniques at the end of the mastering tutorial :)

Dynamics Processing - Final Word

Compressors and limiters come in all shapes and sizes, with controls/parameters varying from one to another.

Single-Band Compressors...


Multi-Band Compressors...

The techniques and methods demonstrated in this chapter make use of the controls/parameters found typically on all dynamics processors.

The consumer's speakers and environment could be literally anything, laptop speakers, a noisy kitchen, inside a moving car, or a peaceful living room with an expensive hi-fi. Use of dynamics processors provide the control and sonic energy to cut through the noise and sound bigger than the speakers themselves.
