Anyone else have a lot of experience with using parallel compression on drums? I’ve been using it a lot lately with pretty amazing results. Just curious about others.

H-Comp is great, I also get good results with Cytomic “The Glue”. I like to set medium attack and quick release for punchy drums.

Parallel Compression is great. Recently, I’ve been parallel compressing guitars for a hard rock album I am doing, sounds amazingl. I’ve heard, but have never tried, that it works great with vocals.

Not only drum. Clean guitar, vocal, stings and a lot of other stuff. Most of the time I use parallel compression.

Today I bought reason 7 (new version released today :) ), it comes with parallel compression on any channel just one click away :)

It’s awesome, so easy, so powerful … Reason is the best daw for me.

If you never seen this feature in action, check this video:

You can also use it on the mix buss to fill out the sound without losing transients. It brings up the lower levels when things get quiet, and when things get loud, it’s underneath everything. The only thing you have to be careful of is that it can bring up the noise floor on things like intros and endings where there isn’t much going on. I used to use it all the time on mixes, now not quite as much. Everything goes in cycles, after seeing this thread I’ll probably start using it on some AJ tracks! :)

As I understand for parallel compression you have two same tracks (drums, vocals) one with no compression and second with it.And with proper compression and mixing tracks you get more punchy, natural, fat sound.
