When I released my FL Studio Template [December 2016 Edition], I realized in earlier tutorials I was using the FL Studio Compressor, which introduces a bit of latency!

When using techniques such as parallel compression, this can actually have a dramatic effect to the impact of your drums and claps! (As well as other sounds!)

This video is just a be aware of this situation kind of video. But in my template, I’ve used the Fruity Limiter, and adjusted the attack on the limiter section to be 0 milliseconds.

Now you can compress your parallel channel like crazy, and get some extra thickness; just like the technique is intended to do 🙂
