Most of them are worthy things that I want and/or need to do, but they keep me hopping. In response, I’ve chosen a very simple motto: “Simplify.” I plan to live by this simple (pun intended) maxim through the end of the year—at least. Simply (pun intended again),… View this post

    When Patrick Carney, drummer for the popular rock band The Black Keys, was looking to enhance his sound, he was drawn to Unity Audio’s Lisson Grove AR-1 tube compressors upon hearing them in his friend Gus Seyffert’s studio.

If a sound has dynamics (increases and decreases in volume), a compressor will push them together.  This type of effect is called compression and is not to be confused with computer files compression (making files smaller)… View this post
