I Heart NY – Overview

I Heart NY is an easy-to-use parallel compressor plugin by BABY Audio. It was designed to instantly make any track (or even the entire mix) sound fatter.

Typically, you’d have to manually set up a parallel compression chain in your DAW. I Heart NY speeds up this process by doing everything automatically. Just load it on a channel or a bus, and voila! The parallel compressor is already set up, and it’s doing magical things to your audio.

There are many different ways to utilize parallel compression, but it’s most commonly used on the drum and master buses. The vocals are another area where parallel compression works like a charm.

The main idea behind “NY compression” is to overcompress the signal and mix it in with the uncompressed signal to get the best of both worlds.

I Heart NY makes this process as straightforward as possible. The Spank knob controls the amount of compression applied to the signal, the Parallel Signal slider adjusts the dry/wet balance, and the Output knob controls the master volume.

While things look simple on the outside, BABY Audio put a lot of work into the compression algorithm. Here’s more info from their website:

“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 – an ‘NYC Compression’ favorite! – or bring your pop vocals all the way to the front, the ‘Spank’ knob has got you covered.”

I Heart NY is available in VST, AU, and AAX plugin formats for digital audio workstations on Windows and macOS.

On a related note, BABY Audio recently launched the Black Friday sale. Get up to 44% OFF their best-selling plugins, including Smooth Operator and Spaced Out. The sale ends on December 5th.
