Parallel Compression

Really liked the sound of parallel compression on a stereo bus track of kick and snare on a track we just finished. Was hesitant 2 try it out because everyone seems 2 do it and sometimes that can keep u from finding yr own sound. But sometimes there are exceptions where something is so good u can't pass it up and this is 1 of them. If u aren't familiar with it parallel compression is where u mix in a highly compressed version of an audio track with a lightly or non-compressed version. It serves 2 add a lot more power and punch than u would get otherwise. So try it out if u haven't already done so.
