Producertech’s All Access Membership gives users unlimited access to 400+ hours of tutorials, over 10GB of Loopmasters samples, hundreds of projects and presets, plus written notes and assessments.

Try the Free Producertech Compression Fundamentals Online Course
Compression is one of the most essential techniques to master when producing great music, and you can get your head around it with this course from ProducerTech, which is also free for a limited time. Senior Tutor Rob Jones takes you from first principles to advanced techniques in this three-hour course, which is free as part of #StayInspired.
FREE PLUGIN – Baby Audio – I Heart NY
Thanks to Plugin Boutique and Baby Audio, this parallel compressor plugin for PC and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is free as part of the #StayInspired campaign.
Usually £25, I Heart NY gives you that punchy, powerful sound without setting up parallel routing in your DAW. The Spank control lets you add an extra edge to the parallel compression process, heating up your audio even further.
FREE PLUGIN – WA Production – Vocal Splitter
Vocal Splitter is a plugin for turning mono vocals into thick, modern-sounding stereo ready to add to a track. Not only have WA Production taken a classic effect applied to vocals and made it easier to perform, but they’ve also added more customisation into the bargain.
With its Frequency and Drive parameters, Vocal Splitter can add grit and increase definition to a certain frequency range of your choice, helping your vocals stand out against the crowd even more. Vocal Splitter usually costs $29 but is free as part of #StayInspired.
FREE PLUGIN – Pulsar Audio – Smasher
A plugin emulation of the legendary Urei 1176 compressor, this effect can give you an explosive sound on a drum bus, add body and sustain to a snare sound, and bring out the bite in a bass guitar.
The 1176 was famed for its quick attack time and it’s all-buttons-in mode, which put the compressor into an extreme mode of operation. Smasher gives you all-buttons-in, all the time. The usual price for Smasher is €49, but as part of #StayInspired, it’s yours for free.
