    Hi everyone I was just wondering if anyone could explain to me the side chain feature on the stock compression plugin in pro tools le 8. Dyn 3.0 is where my settings have been saving in. Im interested in learning how to sidechain kick drum and bass to make the kick stand out more, and any other uses you may have found useful with it.

    Side chaining a compressor is more for ducking, I would think. I've never used it for anything else. Side chaining a gate however can be useful for a lot more things. You can side chain a gate to add white noise to a snare or a low frequency oscillator for kick.
