Compression is one of the tools used by sound engineers in many various ways during a recording. Sometimes, though, we need more control over SPECIFIC audio frequencies. That’s when we use the multiband compression.
A multiband compressor is a collection of several individual compressors put together in one single unit. The frequency range is divided up so that each compressor only affects that range.
In the article below are three cool things you can do with multiband compression:
- Controlling pop vocal tone
- Thick and punchy, but still “sustainy” and level bass
- Managing the top end (high frequencies)
