THE DEFINITIVE PUNCH
Unlock unparalleled powers.
Parallel Processing plays a fundamental role in getting a “punchy” mix sound. It works by duplicating the same track into multiple copies and processing each duplicate with different levels of intensity. By blending these duplicates together, you can add more power while still preserving a track’s natural dynamics.
Parallel Aggressor is based on this simple concept. The plugin hosts three parallel busses internally:
Dry – Your original signal
Spank – A heavily compressed duplicate
Heat – A heavily saturated duplicate
Work each duplicate hard! Then combine all three signals to squeeze every drop of sonic juice out of your track
Balance the three parallel signals from the main level mixer.
Use the Spank and Heat knobs to dial-up the firepower of the parallel engines.
The meters help you set the right amount of Spank and Heat for any audio signal.
(Dial the main Spank/Heat knobs until the meters peak right before the orange line).
The style knobs inject desirable sonic flavors into the parallel engines. Engage multiple at once.
The solo buttons let you monitor each parallel signal individually for fine-tuning purposes.
Turn on Auto Gain to get a consistent plugin output, roughly matching the input level.
Output sets the global output level (post Auto Gain).
