Premiere Vs. Resolve SHOWDOWN: Best Compressor

Premiere Vs. Resolve SHOWDOWN: Best Compressor

Compression is a foundational process for mixing whether in post production or music. Compression allows sound to be beautifully contoured, made muddy or snappy and a dozen other critical attributes we use daily in the mix bay. Having the best compressor, therefore, is a moral imperative – almost as much as having the best EQ.

But finding a world-class compressor onboard a Non Linear Editor is a rarity. But the compression audio plugins found in Adobe Premiere Pro and Black Magic’s Davinci Resolve are incredible resources for shaping any sound and can be applied liberally for powerful Hollywood-level sound. But which one is most effective and efficient for post production ues?

With Fairlight’s new 1,000+ track count and hardware acceleration capability, can Adobe Premiere Pro stack up to Resolve?

In this video, Mark takes us through a blow-by-blow contrast and comparison of the Single-Band Compressor and Dynamics plugins in both NLEs, and he shows us which one is the winner for most effective and efficient to use in Post Production. Additionally, everything he demonstrates is in parallel to how the 90 hour Cinema Sound Education demonstrates best practices.
