In this free video tutorial, Pro Tools Expert team member Julian Rodgers uses the Plugin Alliance Lindell Audio 254E Compressor on a snare to demonstrate the character of this software emulation of the Neve 2254.

Over the coming weeks, we are going to run a series of free video tutorials produced by Recording Revolution's Graham Cochrane for Avid. Graham made this series in 2015 using Pro Tools 11 but so much of what Graham covers is still relevant and valid that we have decided to run his series here on Pro Tools Expert.
