      Whats up people. As i said in the title i am new here and looking for some user suggestions on which content from the vault i should dive into first.

      I had my eye on the QZB minimal tutorials and was wondering if anyone could give me a brief rundown of what to expect if i purchase that.

      My main areas of interest at the moment are diving deeper into EQ and Compression as i feel like i have an okay understanding with synthesis and arrangements but i’m really struggling with getting my sounds to fit nicely within the mix.

      Thanks very much and i look forward to your suggestions.

      Hey Marco,

      Firstly welcome aboard, and welcome to the forum šŸ™‚

      What kind of level are you at? There’s quite a bit of content in the vault, with nearly all of it using either an EQ or a form of compression in there somewhere! Joe Ford’s new course covers the foundations of EQ & Compression.
      But if you are looking to go further, then it might be best to look at individual lessons to see where and why EQ & Compression is used in those contexts. For example Abis did a great tutorial last season on pretty advanced Drum Design and he dispels a lot of the assertions that you need compression…
      If you wanted to start thinking about using Compression to its extreme, Disprove did a tutorial called ‘Drum Over Compression’ which is S05E07 in the vault.
      The QZB minimalism tutorials are also really nice and cover their approach towards their particular style.

      Hey there thanks very much šŸ™‚

      I would say i am between the beginner-intermediate phase. I’ve been putting in the work for a few years now with some breaks here and there due to studying and not having as much time as i would like.

      Currently i am learning drum synthesis and one of the issues i have with the tutorials is when they slap on a compressor at the end with some values that they may or may not understand and more often then not they don’t give any context for why they are doing what they are doing. It always leaves me asking why? So at the moment i am doing some research to try and understand this but there is always differentiating opinions on why you should or shouldn’t so progress is made slowly.

      All of you’re suggestions are great, appreciate it. I think Joe Ford’s course might be the place to start in order touch base with the foundations and I’ll queue up the others when i think I’m ready.

      Thanks for you’re help!
