Cre­ate and save three ready-made pro­ces­sor con­fig­u­ra­tions to save your­self time on com­mon tasks From fat­ten­ing com­pres­sion through to more cre­ative stereo tricks, par­al­lel pro­cess­ing is a sta­ple tech­nique in mod­ern pro­duc­tions. By keep­ing your main mix sig­nals in­tact, but pip­ing them sep­a­rately to an aux chan­nel, you can add pro­cess­ing on top of the source sounds in ques­tion, to main­tain mix so­lid­ity and achieve a more ‘3D’ ef­fect.
