Best compressor video I've seen in a while!

I don’t think I’ve ever seen this an optical compressor circuit explained with such simplicity and relevance. If you’ve ever wondered why an optical compressor sounds so different from a VCA, vari-mu, or FET, this is worth watching. I definitely learned something new there.

Spending $4-5k for a single hardware unit is total insanity for home studio folks. That’s not the point - to me, the knowledge carries value because it helps you understand why some of your plugins sound the way they do :slight_smile:

Found it interesting and just thought I’d share.


Thanks for that, quite instructive!

Ha, 0:56 “Light = Magic”. Who ever thought of that? [deep thoughts] :wink:

Genesis 1:3 (New International Version)

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.


I love this and this guy is an incredibly good teacher. Thank you for sharing.
