Question Question about Scheps parallel compression bus-es

I understand he uses them on individual tracks

and then on the rear-bus sans bass and drums

but he mentioned multiple group parallel buses, which I'm curious as to what groups these are and how they're being mixed into the rest of the song

Any group you wish and output to stereo out bus.

You can find them listed in a lot of the write-ups/interviews if you keep poking around. Off the top of my head, drums get the most parallel comp groups - drum crush, drums dirt, kick/snare crush are main ones I recall. I think he also has separate drum ones for Fatso and Devil-loc.

He also has at least one specific vocal comp parallel set up, the one with Pultecs on either side of a comp (I think).

His other main groups - guitars, percussion, etc, probably all have a parallel bus comp in his template, but the ones above are the ones I remember him using the most in videos etc. And for that matter - keep in mind that he always says these are just there if he needs them, but he doesn't always. And in the case of all those drum ones, they're all in the template so he can try out different sounds quickly.

Basically what Smithburg said. Don't know if they offer a test period but PureMix has a video series where he goes through his template, you can even download it.

These days he usually goes with all his drum parallels, his parallel vocal chain and sends all other instruments just to the rear buss.

Yes his Puremix videos are excellent, the template one plus also the ones where he goes through mixes he's done. Also OP please note, he usually has bass in the rear bus. Usually he just excludes the drums, or keeps them low in it, to minimize pumping. And sometimes the shells will be in it to pump a little but no overheads, to keep the cymbals from ducking audibly on hits.
