From 20th January to 17th March (4pm GMT), members of Novation and Focusrite's Sound Collective community can download Baby Audio's Parallel Aggressor, for Mac and Windows. Normally sold for $49.00, Parallel Aggressor is free to download for Sound Collective members. This is what they have to say about it...
Unlock unparalleled powers with Parallel Processing, which plays a fundamental role in getting a punchy mix sound. It works by duplicating the same track into multiple copies and processing each duplicate with different levels of intensity. By blending these duplicates together, you can add more power while still preserving your track's natural dynamics.
The plugin hosts three parallel busses internally: Dry is your original signal, Spank is heavily compressed duplicate for extra punchy transients, and Heat is a heavily saturated duplicate of the original audio signal and adds harmonics. Combine all three signals to squeeze every drop of sonic juice out of your track.
Sound Collective is a community hub that brings you, Novation and the most innovative software brands together. If you want to find great virtual instruments and effects, keeping up to date with the constant stream of new releases is essential, and Sound Collective makes it easy, with regular free software downloads and generous discounts on high-end plug-ins. To join Sound Collective, simply register any Novation product, then look out for a new offer every couple of months.
