Parallel powers in a plugin.
I Heart NY was our first plugin. It replicates the classic “New York Parallel Compression Trick”. A technique where you create a duplicate of your audio signal and add heavy compression, EQ and a touch of sonic magic to it – before blending it in with your dry track. I Heart NY does all this in a plugin, no extra busses needed.

● Parallel bus hosted inside the plugin for an ultra-simple workflow
● Purpose-designed compression algorithm with an addictive punch
● EQ-curve and adaptive side-chain filtering under the hood for extra tone-shaping
● Can be used as a normal insert compressor by engaging the ‘solo’ button
Under the Hood
The ‘Spank’ knob may look basic on the surface. But it controls a complex algorithm developed to fire-up whatever you throw at it. ‘Spank’ offers a mix of punchy, yet transparent, high-ratio compression, a bit of EQ and an adaptive low-end preservation filter for extra fullness. The signal flow has been designed to add its own unique flavor to your tracks, bringing together qualities from both analog and digital compressors. Whether you want to recreate the thunderous drum sound of 1990s rock bangers – a ‘NYC Compression’ favorite! – or bring your pop vocals all the way to the front, the ‘Spank’ knob has got you covered.
