Here’s the 13-minute long tutorial video I shot recently for the September 2013 issue of Computer music magazine, detailing the features and controls of the fab eaReckon CM-COMP 87 virtual analog compressor given away free with the mag this month.
Not only is it a thorough overview of the plug-in, it also demonstrates how compressors work in general and gives some real-world examples of how you might use one. So even if you don’t have this particular plug-in, it’s well worth a watch if you’ve ever wondered what this compression business was all about.
Here’s a link to a recent video tutorial I did that appeared on the cover DVD of the May 2013 issue (CM190) of Computer Music magazine.
It gives you a guided tour of what all the knobs and buttons do on the HorNet Fat-Fet vintage analogue-style compressor plug-in, which is kind of cool and can be found given away free with each issue, print or digital. Aside from that though, it also functions as a useful primer on how compressors work generally, and what it is that they do. So if you’ve ever wondered what a compressor really does, or you fancy bagging a free one for use in your own projects, why not check it out?
