Parallel processing

Thanks again for doing this Q&A, Jaquire!

I'm curious as to your parallel chain:

For example, when parallel processing drums ITB with compression:

Do you send to the parallel bus from each individual instrument eg kick, snare? or do you send to the parallel buss from the drum buss?

Then do you send the parallel bus to the master? Or do you send it back to the drum buss?

Thanks so much!

Crazy parallel or side chain techniques

Hey Jacquire, just wondering what is, in your opinion, the wackiest and weirdest side chain or parallel technique, you have used?

I don't mind if its subtle or aggressive, as I like creating more abstract pieces. So if it sounds cool to you, Ill take it.

Thanks for your time man, its appreciated.

I use parallel bussing on groups of tracks, rarely individuals.. For the whole drum kit I have a duplicate group buss that has the parallel compression on it going to the mix buss... I combine kick and snare (sometimes toms) to a buss that routes through the drum bussing and rooms the same way... I buss kick snare and bass together but that would go to the stereo buss... in a way it's just up to you in the way you want to have things combine through processing and if you have enough delay compensation to get it to happen...

Weirdest parallel... can't think of anything to crazy but I do like to use filters like the Moog or Filterfreak to put a resonant edge with some shift around on things to make them pop out more
