  19. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  20. A: A tip for beginners to better dial in compression and hear what compression is doing: Take your Attack and Release all the way down to fast as possible. Increase your Ratio a lot, lower the Threshold and give it some gain if you have to, Then finally dial back the Attack until you like it, then do the same with the release. Get the Ratio and Threshold to a more nominal setting and there you go.
