If you guys have updated your Logic in the past 6 months you would have noticed that the compressor has had a re-face. Apple have done a great job at stylising the interface and adding new circuits. They now have skins which are made to look like the real hardware compressors that they are based on. This is incredibly useful so that new producers don’t have to play a guessing game when trying to compare logic’s circuits to the real thing.
Here at Subbass, we take full advantage of the compressor circuits which at times can be over looked, despite their specially tuned algorithms and how they can aid different sonic elements in your mix. We also spend a long time going through the most important parts of the compressors to ensure that when parameters are being adjusted its for a justified reason rather than a random one. In the Logic One course we cover basic compression, and on the Logic Two we get more in depth and start to use the circuits.
