This video is the second part of our exclusive series on compression controls. After learning about the compression basics such as threshold and ratio in the first episode, it's time to take it a step further and explore all of these lesser-known controls that can leave you puzzled.
But be puzzled no more. Fab Dupont takes it upon himself to demystify settings such as Hold, ARC, Look-Ahead, etc, and describe them to you as clearly as possible. As always, every compressor control is illustrated by down-to-earth audio examples, so you can truly understand what the setting does and its different applications.
This follow-up video is perfect for anyone comfortable with the basic compression settings, and willing to master the compression tool in its entirety.
This video is part of our ultimate compression bundle. Check it out!

@mr.florian: I don't recall having the problem recently but I don;t use big plugin stacks. I would try upping the buffer size.

At 1:08, the graphic, X axis is supposed to be input, and the Y axis the output, not the other way around.... ;)
Anyways, awesome video, as always, just my cartesian mind got bugged :P

Hi Fab, I realized many times that the ProTools can not handle the "side-chain trick" well... somehow the latency compensation freaks out, shifts in a wrong way and loses the sync with the triggered signal (specialy if I use many plugins)... I'm sure you met this problem... How can I solve this? I tried many ways already. Busses, sends auxes... Still don't know, how should I fix it...

I think the labels on the graph's x-axis and y-axis are mixed up.
