Three aux-return recipes
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.
Another great reason to use parallel processing is the fact that you can combine multiple effects processors on one aux channel, meaning you can build completely custom chains for supreme control. Most DAWs allow you to store your premade effects setups or chains, so you can easily stock up your presets folder for easy reuse. Here are three great starting points.
