I HEART NY PARALLEL COMPRESSOR
True ‘New York style’ parallel compression — with an addictively punchy flavor.
Parallel Powers in a Plugin
Parallel compression – also known as ‘New York compression’ – is an essential technique for creating more powerful mixes. But it can be a hassle to deal with the extra routing when you’re in the creative zone.
We have made a plugin that does the hard work for you — with a fat and punchy flavour.
Under the Hood
Many compressors will offer a wet/dry knob. But for a true parallel compression sound, the dry signal should remain unaffected as you add a ‘crushed’ duplicate for extra weight. We’ve built a simple plugin for that process. ‘I Heart NY’ hosts a parallel track internally — giving you instant ‘New York Style’ compression on demand.
The SPANK knob controls a complex and powerful algorithm, designed to fire-up anything you throw at it. Revealing exactly what goes on under the hood would take away some of the magic. But in short it’s a mix of punchy high-ratio compression with a transient-friendly envelope – and a bit of EQ – combined with a low-end preservation filter applied to the internal detection signal for a fuller sound. Add a little of it to give a dull track some extra life, or add a lot to push your mix all the way to the limit (and beyond).
The incoming audio is duplicated, then processed and mixed in, before both signals are summed together through the output.
While parallel compression is its primary strength, I Heart NY can be more than a one-trick pony. Engaging ‘SOLO’ mode makes the plugin operate as a normal insert compressor (by muting the dry audio signal). This opens up a whole new set of possibilities for using the SPANK algorithm on your material.
