  2. How to use the VST plug-in SideChain Gate/Expander

    Any help would be appreciated :-) I am trying to figure out how the side-chain portion of the gate works. The "manual" is useless, but I guess you get what you pay for :-O The problem is that I'm not sure how to "route" a signal to the side-chain input. By setting specific tracks in my DAW...

    Sidechaining vocals for a tighter sound?

    I've heard mixes with lots of layered vocals that sounded with a precision I think humans are unable to obtain. I know a well rehearsed group can do awesome things, but these recordings were so precise as to be "machined", sort of a "dynamics-tune" instead of "auto-tune". I was hoping to...
  4. Sidechainable Frequency Agile Compressor?

    I've searched high and low, and I can't seem to find a frequency agile compressor with a side chain function... I often use side chain comp on guitars to duck them a bit when the vox come in, and I want to experiment with whether this might be more transparent if I were just compressing the...

    (term) Sidechain

    Also know as key input, a sidechain is a part of a circuit that splits off a portion of the main signal to derive a control signal. It can also be a secondary physical input on a processor, such as a compressor that allows control over the compressors functions according to the sidechain...
  8. Parallel Processing/Side-Chaining

    So most of us know the ducking trick with the kick and bass, sending things to "like" reverbs (ie vocal verb, drum verb, or just one for everything), but what else do you guys do? I'd like to learn some new skills. One I like to try is to set up a side-chain with a white noise generator and gate...

    Low Frequency Side-Chain Compression

    As a newbie, I would like to start a discussion on side-chaining low frequency instrument tracks, specifically the kick drum and bass guitar (or synth). Can the pros comment on the 1 - Application of 2 - Theory behind .... having them be connected through some form of compression...
  11. Good uses for side-chaining?

    Hi, I recently upgraded from Cubase SX3 to Cubase 4 . C4 has side-chaining ability and though I thought that I had an idea as to how side-chains worked, I hadnt ever used it before. So I read through the manual to set up a few side chain effects and it worked as I expected with compression...
  12. Side-Chain Bass Compression?

    Hello All: I've noticed that commercial productions have a much more squashed low-end dynamic range than my own recordings. I'm assuming some side-chain bass compression on the master fader is a possible solution. The Digi Design Compressor/Limiter Dyn 3 will allow me side-chain processing...
  13. compression : to Side-Chain or Not!?!

    I am considering getting the Neve Portico Compressor. It is the only high-end compressor I'll have in my home studio. I was originally considering getting a compressor with a High-Pass filter option or Side-Chain so that I can use the compressor to only compress transients and let the low end...

  16. Band-limited sidechain vs. band-limited compression

    Hi there! I’ve been experimenting with the Waves Renaissance Channel plugin, and particularly the “Push the pop master” preset. It’s a pretty simple process. First, a +2db low-shelf at 250Hz and a +4dB high-shelf at ~ 3.3KHz. The EQ stage is followed by a compressor operating over the full...

    I'm sure this is a stupid question, and I may look like a moron for asking it, but could somebody explain to me what sidechaining means? I hear the term a lot and have no clue what it is referring to.Thanks for your help
