"I’ve seen/read quite a few videos/articles about compressors and this is the best explanation Bravo Fab!"

"Fantastic video Fab. Even for those who have been using compressors for a while, it's great to back up for a moment and really get an understanding of what is going on...and you have done a marvelous job once again laying things out in a way that provokes methodical thought. Thank you. I’ve truly deepened by knowledge and changed the way I approach compressors."

"One of the best explanations about compression I've seen. Good job Fab!!!"

"Excellent, magnificent, fantastic!! It is really easy to understand but super practical. I've already learned what is "parallel compression" on another website. This video, however, is totally different. It's not just an explanation of the technique. Fab teaches how to listen to music and what part I need to focus on. And then, he shows the differences with and without parallel compression. Now.... parallel compression is my technique! This video is worth EVERY PENNY! Thanks Fab.."

"Love how you explained the different components of a compressor and what each stands for. And also love the fact you used the compressor that came with the DAW. That way we don't tend to get carried away about the gear but focus more on the concept behind the gear. Thanks."

"I am astonished by how much difference I can hear already, in only my first attempt to use your technique. I also appreciate how you break things down in a simpler form than most which is very easy to understand. Please keep them coming!"
