ADV Studio Recording Week 4

Parallel compression refers to the technique of running a mult of a signal, compressing that mult, and then blending it in with the uncompressed signal. Some compressors also have a ‘mix’ knob where you can blend the compressed and uncompressed signals. The benefits of parallel compression are many-fold, though there are a few pitfalls.This week we will explore one of the more popular forms of alternative dynamics control in parallel compression.
