Using Compressor Pedals - June 14, 2014

Heres a great demonstration of using compressor pedals by Dave Weiner. Most guitarists generally don’t know a lot about what a guitar signal compressor actually does and they usually end up writing them off as something that will effect your tone too easily.  This normally comes from misuse and lack of understanding how they work.  Dave explains them quite well in this demonstration.

My band has been in the studio of late and we’ve decided to release a teaser sampler of some of the tracks off the new recording.  These tracks arent mixed or mastered as yet so the mix may sound a bit rough in places but you will get the gist no doubt!

Sit back, turn up the speakers, press play and prepare to be run over! No Lyrics! Just PURE music.
