Nov 4, 2011 Propellerhead Reason & Record
The first time I used Pulveriser, I did not read the instruction manual. I simply put it on a drum loop, twisted a couple of knobs, and immediately my drums went from “ok drums” to “totally bad ass twisted evil awesome drums.” At that moment I knew: We are going to hear people using Pulveriser on a lot of music from here on out! Never before have I used a sound processor that made it so easy to drastically improve the sound of my drums, vocals, and bass sounds.
A relatively large number of people who make music actually have a rather vague idea about what compression is. Is the compressor the “good” button that makes everything sound better? Warmer? Louder? Smoother? Is it like a delicious barbeque sauce that you can put on everything, the more the better? Not really! Line 6′s Propellerhead Product Specialist Matt Piper talks about the Channel Strip Compressor included on each audio channel in Propellerhead Record, and explains in plain English some fundamental concepts of audio compression.
