Very good tutorial on compression by FL studio team

I know topics already exist, checked them all in the past but got really motivated to post this, as an fl studio user.So for all the fl studio users here who do not use compression, this might change your mind
Very distinctive examples on 1 instrument and a whole track

I've known what certain things in the compressor do to the sound, but it's nice to know more in depth how things actually work. Thx for the vid!!

Re: Very good tutorial on compression by FL studio team

I have a question. Did he use the compressor on everything combined? or just the drums? or ?
I'm curious to know. Also, for those who use compressors, do you use it on everything combined? or do you split it up by instrument?

Re: Very good tutorial on compression by FL studio team

Aephus: he was using it on a loop, so it was all the sounds combined.

This is a good tutorial on how the compressor works but I'd like to get more into the philosophy of compression. E.G.: what to use it on, why use it, when to use it, etc.

Re: Very good tutorial on compression by FL studio team

i mostly use it on percussion.
e.g. if you want a cymbal to be heard into a mix but you dont want it to occupy much space, you raise its volume and u put the compressor attack at lets say 50ms. This way it makes a loud early click and then its volume gets lowered. You can also do the opposite,for example your kick is too loud on the begining, but its overall volume is just fine. Therefore you lower the early loud sound so that it wont be louder than the rest of the song, and the rest of the sound is on a normal level.

Generally compression does not apply to long-time sounds because its maximum release is 200ms (or at least for the one im using) and after that you just need to use noise gate (Or use only the noise gate, why not!)

imo compression is a technique used by people to achieve better quality, but in the end you address your songs to normal people. They wont hear the difference. So a good mastering and mixing, leaves compression asside
