Our View

The content is not specific to FabFilter users but looks valuable for anyone interested in learning more about music producing and mixing. It looks well written, and useful for both beginners and more advanced producers and engineers.

It is a good start but obviously not as comprehensive yet as other brands are already offering, such as the excellent iZotope Learning academy. I hope FabFilter creates more videos in the future. This would make it easier to see and hear what they teach in writing. It would also make it easier for non native English speakers to better learn. Expanding into other topics such as Mastering, Limiting, and Saturation would also be welcome.

I applaud FabFilter to provide these free valuable lessons, and look forward how FabFilter Learn will expand and develop over time.


FabFilter Learn is free to use.
