Mixing Tips! Parallel Compression on Drums

Mixing Tips! Parallel Compression on Drums

Quick drum mixing tip!!

While minimal miking setups on drums can be very, very effective they can sometimes lack focus or excitement that is needed for modern music production. I want to show you a great way to add some thickness and attitude to any minimally miked drum set. How? With Parallel Compression!!

Parallel compression is a staple for most mixing engineers. Why? Because it’s so effective in helping make certain elements of a mix stand out or feel bigger. I use Parallel compression ALL the time on multiple areas in my mixes.

For this tutorial I’m going to use stock Logic Pro X plugins only. I want this to be about the concept and not the gear. Once you understand the concept use the gear you have. Analog or Digital. Go to town and have fun!
