Noise Engineering Blog: Using aux sends: Reverb | Distortion | Compression

"From the blog: https://www.noiseengineering.us/blog/...
Here, we’re using the Desmodus Versio in the aux loop of the WMD Performance Mixer post fader. Note that the Blend control is fully clockwise: since our dry signal is already present in our mixer, we don’t need any more of it in our aux loop. Also note that since the send and return loop of the mixer is mono, but the DV can work as a mono-to-stereo device, we’re using the normal aux out but coming back into a stereo channel. It works and sounds exactly the same as using an aux return, it just gives us more stereo loveliness!"

Here, we have the Seca Ruina in the aux loop of the WMD Performance Mixer processing a distinctly unfriendly patch. Who doesn’t love some hardcore every once in a while, though? This is a really fun way to patch if you’re in the mood for something incredibly distorted and messy as you get some really interesting interactions from multiple signals running through the single distortion circuit."

"If you’ve been reading the blog for a while you may remember our post on compression. We talked a bit about parallel compression in that post, and wouldn’t you know it, you can do some fantastic parallel compression routings with aux loops, too. Here, we have a percussion patch running through our mixer, and we have a compressor in the aux loop. The compressor has very aggressive settings, but since it’s also mixed with the uncompressed copy, it sounds nice and balanced."
