You'll want to look up tutorials for your Digital Audio Workstation (DAW), learning how to use your workstation will be invaluable for learning everything else.

I found that looking guides is a good start, but the best thing to do while starting out is playing with samples. Drum loops, synth patterns, pre-recorded progressions. Saves the headache of learning midi sequencing, though it is entirely up to the DAW!

It's Bandcamp Friday, so be sure to advertise and purchase the music you've been meaning to get today!

I've seen many engineers add a compressor before processing to help control the behavior of the signal as it enters whatever processing chain they use, and then drop another compressor at the end of the chain to tame the signal after wards. I've seen it in a lot of heavier rock/metal tracks. It's a really neat technique once you get a handle on it!

@Deckard Holiday that's really cool! What the dynamics of the signal look like will definitely affect how distortion, chorus/multi-voice effects, and other compression effects will interact. It's really amazing how the pros can use so little, yet make it have such enormous impact on how everything sounds.

News feed test, this group exists! I wonder if I can find a way to open up permissions here for everyone so that this feed can be used for people to promote their new releases 🤔
