Drum Compression Demystified!

Mike Senior Drum Compression Demystified online mixing course tutorial

Mixing guru and SOS contributor Mike Senior has announced the launch of his latest online course, which is available now through his Cambridge-MT website.

‘Drum Compression Demystified’ will guide users step-by-step through a series of practical drum mixing tasks, demonstrating ways to maximise the impact of compression in real-world project studio scenarios. One-shot samples, drum machines, loops and breaks, virtual drummers and live multitracked kits will all be covered, with a focus on achieving a commercial-grade mix without spending out on additional software. It will also help users to identify when compression is and isn’t the best tool for the job, and address alternative techniques that can do a better job of delivering the desired results.

Those who sign up for the course before 11:00 PST on 30 September 2023 will also gain access to Mike’s ‘Bass Mixing Hacks’ group-coaching live stream, where he’ll be sharing some of his top tips for keeping the low end of your mix in check, as well as answering direct questions about the course content, among other topics.
