who here is using this technique and on what?
as an alternative to mixing in parallel, would the same effect not be achieved by having a compressor on a send and adjusting the send amount to taste?
or if a compressor or effect insert has a mix parameter on it, allowing to adjust the amount of dry signal vs wet....would that not have the same effect as parallel mixing, if not BE the same thing.?
Use two limiters of different types, ex.Opto
then different settings, ex.peak/rms
Push one hard that you enjoy the colour from
keep the other transparent as possible
use the transparent as primary
then mix in the heavily slammed unit
adjust the attack/release to taste
enjoy great results!
and always experiment!!
Good Luck Everyone!!!
