    Hi People,

    well, I'd like to compress the low Freq of the snare separate as I do with the insterts.

    I mean to use a Eq+Comp through the insert and to use a different Comp. for the low. (I'd like to check how it sounds)

    I never worked with side chains etc. :oops: and I'm sure that you can give me a tip.

    I work with ProTools.

    Thank you

    duplicate the snare track onto another channel and do your business. Or use a multiband compressor.

    I know this trick but I thought that there must be another possibility with the sidechains or whatever

    maybe I'm not sure what you are trying to do. Normally you would sidechain a comp so one instrument would affect another one, or ot reduce a certain frequency, like a de-esser. Asnare drum is such a short transient sound I don't think it will do anything different with an eq in the sidechain.
