Compressors can be a great way to even out the dynamics of a drum mix, vocal performance or any audio signal. A compressor works by lowering the gain when the signal jumps above a certain level or thr



在本教程中,我们将探讨如何使用总线技术在Logic Pro适用于平行的压缩,但你可以在Logic Express或任何您所选择的DAW。

01 - 相对水平



I've also slapped an Adlimiter on the Stereo Output channel strip. This is entirely optional!!
Here's what the loop sounds like "dry":

02 - 集团的“干”的鼓


巴士20创建一个新的AUX通道作为输入。从鼓通道的信号现正美联储AUX 1。我将重新命名矿“干鼓”。

03 - 光压缩

This step is optional. I like to add some light compression to the Dry Drums Aux to help all the elements gel together. Click and hold on the top insert slot and choose Dynamics > Compressor
Notice the Ratio and Threshold settings I've dialed in below. It creates a mild overall compressed effect.

04 - 发送到总线





05 - 重压缩设置

Insert a Compressor plugin on the first insert slot of the "Big Comp" Aux channel strip. Here is where you can now let rip with a higher than normal ratio amongst other settings to give your drum loop a fuller, bigger sound. My settings are pretty extreme and the resulting sound is squashed and over-compressed. But that's a good thing for when we come to mixing this with the dry signal!

06 - 去并行


仪器(S)和体裁混合的音乐,你将在很大程度上取决于你选择添加额外的身体。尝试切换静音“大比赛”通道条的A / B的并行压缩。

    This is very useful, Rounik! You explain everything so clearly. The added audio samples are invaluable.

    This mix worked very well.Actually, incredibly well. Might I ask one question? When a mix is made, the send levels which if blue are post fader and will track the fader in the event the fader is changed. Why then choose a pre-Fader send (Green) which is untouched by any change for the fader itself and if one were selected, wouldn't that make it easier to simply adjust the compressed channel down since the feed levels are still as needed in terms of mix? I always wondered if using pre fader sends were a good choice for maintaining better stability? Any other advantages or disadvantages on that front? Since the compressed Aux is a parallel feed and is controlled separately, it seems like a good idea. Thanks again for these great tricks. I like this better then the drop down menu where you can do parallel compression in the compressor itself.

    Good point Victor! Going Pre-Fader would make it easier if the levels are pretty much where you want them... but Post-Fader means any adjustments you make to the original fader level will be reflected on the Parallel channel... which might be what you want... or might not be. Different peeps mix in different ways, so depending on your mixing style and the material you're working with try both post and pre fader. One just makes it easier to adjust the Send level and the original level using one fader essentially.

    Hi Robert very good and clear, just one question step 4 - using the bus sends for a new submix of the drums. Would it not work if you used the bus send of the group - ie the send section of the group to a new bus - this would be an exact copy of your drums as they are - ie level wise etc Am I missing somthing , are there issues with delay perhalps Best L
