Multiband compression is an effect that allows you to isolate and compress different "bands" or areas of the frequency spectrum. This means that you can compress, say, the bass and the kick drum together without squashing the entire signal.
To understand why we'd want to do that, it might first be important to remember what Compression does. It allows you to raise the perceived volume of a signal because it attenuates the volume spikes that might cause distortion. With compression, you can raise the average volume of a signal, but often at the expense of dynamics, since the distance between the quiet and the loud sections of the signal will be closer togehter.
One way that we can have our cake and compress it, too, is to apply more compression to areas of the signal that may not have that much dynamic variation, such as a kick drum. Usually a kick drum is playing or not. There's very seldom a reason, in electronic music, to have quieter and louder hits of the kick drum. So, squashing this frequency range and leaving the rest untouched, will allow you to raise the perceived volume of these parts without sacrificing the overall dynamics of the track.
In this little video, I show you how to do just that. I also illustrate (unwittingly!) some common missteps when applying this kind of compression, so be sure to look out for these and not to fall in the same traps that I do!

I've decided to release a five part video series I created back in December for the VIP session that demonstrate how to determine a song's key, or more specifically the MAJOR scale, tonal center, and musical mode on which a song is based. Learning to make a distinction between these three components: Major scale, tonal center, and musical mode can help you gain insight into the emotional qualities inherent in the specific arrangement of notes being used in a song's composition.
With WMC 2012 coming up and the prospect of scantily clad revellers raving it up at various pool parties around Miami, this week Danny J Lewis decided to demonstrate how to create that summertime deep house pool party vibe.
As part of the sound he shows you how to twist up a vocal sample using Ableton Live and Native Instruments Maschine as a control device.
