Premiere Vs. Resolve SHOWDOWN: Best Multiband Compressor

Compressors have been around since the 60’s. They’re an integral part of every music producer’s arsenal. It’s no less so for post production. If you don’t have great sounding and easy to use compressors in your tool belt, it’s going to be very difficult to get a professional-grade mix. But with the advent of the multiband compressor, the game changed. 

No more did we have to hear the pumping artifacts of heavy compression on dialog or sound effects. In fact, we can now use multiband compressors to contour and shape a sound with all the benefits of EQ and compression combined. But until recently, the multiband compressor was absent from non linear editors.

But now with Adobe Premiere Pro and Davinci Resolve’s Fairlight page, the MBC is back on the menu and creating incredible results with the flick of a few knobs.

With Fairlight’s new 1,000+ track count and hardware acceleration capability, can Adobe Premiere Pro’s Multiband Compressor stack up to Resolve’s version of the same plugin?

In this video, Mark takes us through a blow-by-blow contrast and comparison of the Multiband Compressor 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.
