Personally I prefer the mix blend knob. Keeps the levels more similar and less to think about. I dislike my NI plugs which have a separate pots for dry and wet.

Give me a single blend knob any day!

Parallel compression aka New York compression is a completely different animal than a balance control. And right now we don't know if the mix knob on Iron is true parallel compression or is it a balance control. Two different sounds. NY compression blends in the compressed signal with the uncompressed original signal that's on a separate track and both routed to a third track.

Is this what the mix knob on Iron does or is it just a balance control like most every mix knob on a reverb plugin does? Different sounds out of each mode.

This is why I mentioned that maybe Drew Mazurek or Dave (forget his screenname atm) would know or have some ideas on this.

I know I am not one of the ones listed - but -
I prefer to think of it as a traditional "mix" rather than an actual parallel process. This is from the manual. The key word here is probably "effectively"?
"
Pararell(sic)
Controls the amount of unprocessed signal being blended with the
processed (compressed) signal, effectively providing the option of
parallel compression."

Given that wording I'm thinking balance control and not true parallel compression.
