Parallel Compression

Post by tstu102 » Fri Aug 16, 2013 3:03 pm

Hey guys

Here's a little thing I've written on parallel compression. In Ableton I usually achieve this by creating an audio rack, with two chains - one with the compressor, and one dry.

This is a long but hopefully informative read if you want to either

a. Make your drums punchy without sacrificing body / bass (kick drums!)

b. Achieve louder drums / vocals / bass, or entire mixes without sacrificing transients!

Looking forward to the read.
Now couldn't you achieve the same results with the new Glue Compressor's dry/wet knob?
