Parallel compression

by MaxVangeli » Tue Sep 29, 2015 5:30 am

All of you young producers should REALLY learn this and start using it especially for drum buss FATNESS. And even Leeds as well. I am not going to explain this myself, but rather post a detailed link:

About new york compression... There is one thing that i dont like about it. It is phase canellation in so many harmonics which actually is called flangler effect. It is not huge but that is the reason why i don't use it very often and even if
I use it, it's not so hudge effecting the sound ;). You can acomplish the same thing by adding a layers and compresing them, which for me
Worls better because there is no flangler ;) but you know, it depends on the taste. Everything is good unless the result is good ;)

i've just figured out that this "flangler effect" appeare only when current plugin is doing some small delay, for example maximus :D. Pro-c for example doesn't do it, so defenetly i will do buses more often :)
