Axe-Fx III

Blocks Guide Description

The Multiband Compressor can be used to shape dynamics and tone, providing independent compressor settings for low, mid, and high frequency bands. The basic principle of a Multiband Compressor is that the input is divided into different frequency components using a crossover. Compression is applied to the bands individually before they are recombined. This allows you to apply different types or amounts of compression to each.

Multiband compression is a standard mastering tool and can greatly improve a final mix or a complex guitar sound. It makes the continuity of low frequencies less susceptible to pumping caused by the snap of pick attack.
