Now that I've finally finished up mixing and mastering my newest album Pleasures (which should be out next month!), I can confidently say: I will never stop learning about music production.
There's just so much going on in the world of audio engineering; from phasing to proper (and improper!) mic placement, to correct effect sending and more...but there's nothing as baffling to beginners and intermediate producers alike as the concept of (*cue horribly over compressed scary music*) Compression.
This month, as part of my court obligated work release program, I've come up with a short list of some of my favorite tips and tricks for using, abusing and understanding compression from all over the internet. It's by no means a complete analysis, more like a hodgepodge of some of the better tutorials out there, but I'm sure there's more than a trick or two here that you might want to use on your next track.
So reset your ratio for learning and squash the threshold for fun and lets get started on this month's Top Nine: Audio Compression Tips & Tricks From Around The Web.

With the world being so hard lately, I decided to keep it soft this month and give you a taste of nine of my favorite soft rock songs perfect for letting go of all the troubles in your life, donning your best captain's hat, and just sailing away aboard your luxury yacht.
For those of you still not familiar with the genre lovingly coined as "Yacht Rock", you should watch Channel 101's in-depth behind-the-scenes documentary about the songs you listen to aboard unbelievably expensive boats.
Also in this Top Nine: Beards. So many beards.
Let's set sail! Beards, ahoy!

If you know me at all, you know the reason why I don't make more music...or go out and socialize...or even bathe regularly...is almost exclusively because of video games.
But instead of making a worthwhile attempt to correct my life before it irrecoverably goes off the rails, I've compiled this list of the best soundtracks video games have to offer. Tackling both in-game incidental music and outright fully composed songs, this month's blog post bridges the gap between the obsession that will one day most likely be the end of me...and music.
So take a step forward and plunge yourself into the cool waters of this months: Top Nine: Best Video Game Soundtracks.
