Clint Murphy shows how he does Parallel Drum Compression

Continuing our exclusive series with top mix engineer Clint Murphy, this video takes a look at how to create parallel drum compression to get a much more expolsive sound in the mix. Clint demonstrates a 'before' and 'after' with good quality audio files to let you compare a before and after parallel compression. In this example Clint is using a Chandler TG 1 compressor.


The video quality isn't super spectacular as Clint grabbed a few minutes from the mix session he was on to record this but the audio samples are at high quality. Clint is recording a series of recording and mixing tips & techniques ranging from microphone comparisons to drum compression. Come back for more soon and if you've got some tips you'd like to share please let us know, maybe we can have Clint visit you!
