Dynamic Processors

Dynamic Processors cover a huge range of production workflows that start with compression but then broadens to include all the advanced corrective processes that great producers use!

Anything that alters the dynamic range of audio is regarded as a dynamic processor. However, that doesn’t begin to explain the myriad of processors we have available in our DAWs.

From de-essing to gating, tape saturation to expansion, harmonizer to normalisation and much much more! All of these processes are explained in detail with ‘before’ and ‘after’ audio examples. A thorough grounding in both theory and application make this category useful AND fun!
