Pro Mixing Tips: Serial Compression


Justin Colletti, from our partners at Sonic Scoop, sits down and delves into the intermediate mixing technique known as serial compression, or stacking multiple compressors on a single source. Colletti first explains some theory behind using a faster attack compressor in front of a slower-acting compressor, and then gives examples of how this technique sounds on drums and bass, two types of tracks that typically benefit from some compression.
