Creative Mixing and Production with
Fabfilter Pro-MB Online Course
Downward & Upward Compression and Expansion, (Noise) Gates, Transient Designers, when to use which one, and for what purpose?

Dynamic Processing has always been notoriously difficult to master. As such, It should be no surprise that Pro-MB, Fabfilter's flagship dynamic tool, can be tricky to wrap your head around.

As a multiband dynamics processor it goes far beyond regular compression or even less-regular multiband compression. It can bring immense power to your mix, make any instrument cut through or completely transform the dynamic contour of your productions.

From subtle dynamic improvements to wildly exciting sound design - In this course we'll take an in-depth look at all the different possibilities. You'll gain insight in the magical world of dynamics which, aided by numerous examples, you'll instantly be able to apply to the various stages of your own music production.

The course contains 3 hours of videos recorded for you by Jor van der Poel (ROLI, Pyramind, Loopmasters, ADSR Sounds).

Whether you are just starting out, or a seasoned producer; our online course is designed to help you get the absolute most out of Fabfilter Pro-MB.

You will be able to tell the difference between upward & downward processing, know when to use each one, and how to manipulate dynamics to bring your music to life.

All students get lifetime access to the course videos.

Meet the Instructor
Learn from one of the best Music Production and Audio Engineering Teachers
Jor van der Poel
Sound Designer (ROLI, Loopmasters, Camel Audio, ADSR sounds, SoundFreqs), Audio Engineer, Music Production Instructor (Pyramind), Grade C certified music teacher
My name is Jor van der Poel, I was born in the Netherlands and lived in Vancouver, BC for years. Currently I am living in Berlin, which proves to be a great playground for the experimental minded (i.e. Mad Scientists).

I am a music producer, arranger, teacher and sound designer. I am certified in both music theory and sound design education.

When I was younger I wanted to be a famous drummer, when I already knew how to play so I started teaching drums to others and I got myself into music education. This introduced me to a whole new world of music, and I realised that if I knew how to record and arrange I could be my own band. So I started practicing piano and guitar, both classical and jazz and learned how to record this to use in my music.

Besides acoustic music, I also love the extreme flexibility of synthetic sounds which made me want to learn about sound design, mixing and mastering. I spend a few years practicing this 8 hours a day, I got pretty good at it and 3 years ago I started making weekly sound design videos for the online community ADSR. This introduced me to a lot of people in the music industry, and taught me more about educating others. It also got me on the Sound-Design team of various Software Developers and a position as featured mentor for Pyramind, CA.

I am a co-founder of Sound-Freqs, a sound-design label that focuses on creating a rich sound-design community, through sound. I am also the owner of Subject Sound, an online school focused on music production, mixing, theory and sound design education.
What Jor's students say
Cody Southard
Music Producer
Jor helped me beyond what words can describe. There's an intangible bonus to working with Jor because he cares about his students gains. I mean that. He went out of his way so many times to really help me understand topics I was grey on and was committed and patient to helping me master the material. I have so much to thank jor for. Definitely for my musical growth and even more importantly, my creative depth has expanded to many many new horizons thanks to him sharing his strategies and knowledge. I can't recommend Jor to enough of my friends!
Brandon Ashworth
Music Producer
I really appreciate the fact that you went above and beyond what you required to do in our sessions so far. They have been the most informative and most tailored to my needs as a student. You took time to answer every question I had and elaborated on those areas every time. You have been hands down the most versatile and compatible instructor thus far and for that I Thank You! Best wishes, I look forward to the courses you will offer.

Jor is a wonderful teacher. He makes a very complicated subject much easier to understand. He also has a good knowledge of a really diverse group of plugins and is always working with the latest plugins and techniques!
