View Full Version : Ney York Compression Trick

Is it possible to do the New York Compression trick solely in Protools without getting a phasey mush? I bussed my drum track to an aux track, compressed the hell out of it and mixed it iunder the original drums, but it didn't sound good at all. Can this trick work in Protools? images/icons/confused.gif

Use time adjuster to compensate for aux send and plugin delay.

Bus drums to stereo bus, create two stereo auxes from that bus and put the same compressors there - one working as you wish and second just doing nothing - ratio 1:1, threshold high enough. Works for me.

Przemek just made a fine suggestion.

Yeah, it works unless you want to use an outboard compressor.

But I guess it wasn't the subject anyway.


I can't remember the delay when the signal is going out of the 888, mutilated with an EQ or compressor and sent back to 888. Have to see that manual again I guess...

Thanks for your suggestions! I'm new to this technique, and I'm wondering of I can do this in a Hip Hop mix, to individual drums sounds, e.g. New York Compress just the snare or kick? -or is this technique only useful to a buss of a whole drum kit?
