Producertech has launched Complete Guide to Compression, a video tutorial course by Rob Jones.
Much used but rarely fully understood, compression is an incredible tool utilised by audio professionals in every field. These detailed lessons, taught by Course Director, professional producer and Music and Sound Recording graduate Rob Jones, will take you from a basic to a thorough understanding of this powerful effect. With visual and aural demonstrations, accompanied by a clear and informative commentary, by the end of the course you will have a thorough grasp of how single band and multiband compression functions and how to apply it to individual and groups of drums, vocals and the master buss.
The course starts by giving you a basic understanding of the parameters found on every compressor, including examples of their effects on dynamics and frequency, demonstrating how different settings can alter the sound both positively and negatively. Students learn how to use a compressor both as a precision tool and as a creative device, with specific examples and aural and visual demonstrations, to help get the most out of a mix.
The course is available immediately after purchase and is accessible 24/7/365, with help on hand from tutors on the Producertech forum when required. Accompanying the video lectures are the Live projects made throughout and detailed written notes explaining all of the concepts and techniques taught on the course.
The course is available for purchase for £12.95 GBP.

Producertech has released the Complete Guide to Maschine Studio, a video course featuring nearly 4 hours of tutorials by Rob Jones.
The second course in the range of Complete Guides to Maschine by Producertech has now arrived, outlining in detail every aspect of the Maschine software and vast Studio hardware. The lengthy set of tutorials, which comes bundled with written notes, Maschine projects and 240MB of bonus samples, not only thoroughly explains each part of Maschine but also shows how to use the powerful groove production studio to create a wide variety of musical styles.
Brought to you by Producertech Course Director and professional producer Rob Jones, the lessons begin by taking you through all of the different ways patterns can be created using Studio, including how to play in parts, program in step mode and draw events, all of which are then edited both directly in the software and also entirely from the hardware control surface. In addition, there are lessons outlining how to create your own kits, by importing, editing and recording samples, as well as a thorough look at customising sounds with Maschine’s Sampler.
There are also lessons that teach how to lay out a track using Scene mode, how to process sounds and groups with insert and send effects, how to make use of Maschine’s extensive sample slicing and stretching facility, how to automate parameters onboard and in the DAW, how to use the hardware to control external software, and much more.
