Dave Crane is well known as the "Universal Audio guy", and has been producing tutorial videos for UA for many years.
David says, "teaching people how to understand the tools of music production and make better sounding music is one of my greatest joys."
Dave not only loves mixing music on Macs with Logic Pro, he just can't stop playing his dang guitars. He and his wife "front" the Pearl Alley Band. And when they can find a babysitter who is not afraid of their English Bulldog, they get out and gig all over the Silicon Valley.
Dave currently works at Apple, Inc., in audio, of course!

Good show-case of Universal Audio compressors, only downfall is that most of these comprssors' have been updated now!

Even if, like me, you're not a UAD user, this really is a great course to understand the many different ways to compress your music and apply them to your own compressors. Excellent!

Covers a bunch of UA Compressors - and there is stuff in here that is useful to know about compressors even if you aren't using the UA versions.

Good tutorial overall! Ran through all of the compressors and gave a little background on their analog counterparts. A little bit repetitive towards the end there though.

There's some talk about this course being an infomercial, and I get that. But I also gleaned a lot of insight into watching how to use compression properly with a host of different instruments.

i found some elements of this course quite helpful but mostly i found it interesting seeing how different compressors work and the differences in controls.

I thought this course was informative. Really broke down compression pretty easily. You can use these techniques on any compressor. Minus one star for the fast pop up windows. Had to pause to read.

If you work with UAD compressors, Like I Do, You will enjoy this course. Nice, clean informations about all best UAD models. But it is not course about compression it self.

Good overview course, they walk you through each compressor so you get a feel for its sound. Only critique is to have more a/bing of the compressors without talking so you can hear differences better
