I am trying to catch up on electronic music production techniques. This class gave me clear and step by step instructions on how to use side chain compression. But, do not think that there is a lack of creativity in this approach. Mikael gives guidance on how to lay a clear technical foundation so that I could let my creativity fly free. Great course!!
