Intro To Side-chaining
In this course, we start with the basics of side-chain compression. As with most things, we learn the rules, so that we can break the rules.
We then look at some more creative and unusual ways of approaching the idea. Once you understand the concept, I encourage you to explore other creative ways of using it in your productions
Finally, at the end of each Part, I offer my special “Album Rec.” corner, where I recommend an album I think you should listen to, and how it relates with the lesson we’d just learned.
Here’s the song we’re working on today, in its entirety-
Shachar Boussani, aka Shak, started as a bass player at the age of 16. What started as jam sessions at friends’ basements quickly grew to become a clear lifelong passion. Shak then went on to producing music with other artists and singer and even composing for film. Years of producing and recording independent artists in all types of different studios, eventually led Shak to a keen set of skills perfectly suited for mixing music, such as a great balance between the love of the art and the love of the technology, understanding the artists’ language, patience, organization skills, adaptability, and more. With over a decade of experience, Boussani got to work with all different types of artists in many different genres- from Jazz to Hip-Hop, from RnB to Rock, and from Alternative to mainstream Pop music. Shak is of the firm belief that when all is said and done, if the artist’s message is true, it does not matter which dialect they choose to use in the universal language of music!
