Nimbus Instructor Alex “Condor” Aligizakis took some time to prepare a Nimbus Tips video. In this video he shows some quick tips on how to use Parallel Compression in your drum mix in Pro Tools to make your drums cut through the mix.
What is Parallel Compression?
Parallel compression is the process of combining two tracks of the same audio, one dry or lightly compressed and one processed.
It is a commonly used technique in mixing and adds life to the mix.
