Flamenco, Mixing, EQ, Reverb, & Compression

Be kind, and Rewind. This week, the UU Team is taking a deep dive into Audio Engineering Techniques and Effects. Before that, let's rewind to the beginning of the podcast, and hear Aldrine explain why he strums with his fingers extended. Next, the guys demonstrate several options for a diminished chord switch, and give a quick Student Review. Of course UU needs to make a food related tangent before getting to the main topic. Aldrine and Kahai give their EQ and Reverb Tips while the guys come together to explain what compression is, and why you would use it. Aldrine gives examples of compression and EQ in his own stories of recording. The gang tries to define Mastering before offering recommendations for practicing Flamenco. There is one final Rabbit hole when Aldrine reminds everyone to Rewind their Tapes and VHS.
