This collection of Combinator patches is picked from his presentation at The Producers Conference.
Thanks to Willbe for the backdrop!
A dual band compressor/limiter. Works both as a mastering unit and as a tool for beefing up sub mixes or loops.
Get a little reverb on everything! Insert this combinator in front of the mastering suite Combinator and put some depth into the mix.
This is your typical parallel compressor in a sweet looking combinator! The mix knob is the most crucial parameter here. It works like a dry/wet balance. In the full clockwise position there's only compressed signal. Back it off and you get the parallel effect.
This patch can actually do a lot more than de-essing. It's a limiter with both a highpass and a lowpass on the sidechain. Try putting it on a drum loop and filter out both kick and cymbals for some crackling snares!
So simple but yet so efficient! Stereo delay with independent time settings for left and right and a feedback loop with a lowpass filter on it.
