In this tutorial Universal Audio compression expert David Crane takes you on an extensive tour of UA's vast line of virtual compressors. You'll learn about the 1176LN, Teletronix LA Series, DBX 160, Fairchild, Fatso, UAD Mastering and Channel SSL 4000, Neve® and the amazing Precision line of emulated compressors.

Through an engaging 2-hours of tutorial-videos, David takes you on a journey through UA's "hardware-based" history and then explains how Universal Audio's new emulation plug-ins are designed to reproduce their hardware ancestor's classic sound while simultaneously adding enhanced functionality. This tutorial is filled with before-and-after audio excerpts that enable you to listen to how these incredible compressors are optimized for use on drums, bass, guitar, piano, vocals and on the mix bus.

Universal Audio is one of those iconic companies whose innovations in the recording industry span almost 60 years. Their unparalleled hardware compressor designs created by their sister company UREI, including the ubiquitous LA-2A, LA3-A, LA-4, 1176, are products that transformed the sound of recorded music.

Even if you don't own any of these UA compressors you will learn compression techniques that you'll be able to apply to any compression plugin-ins you own.

So join David Crane on this incredible exploration of compression with the amazing UA compressors, and discover how compressors are (without a doubt) one of the most important tools to "master" in an audio producer's toolbox.
