    I read you all talk about side-chain effect..

    Can someone explain me what is that and how it's done?

    I took this from the Rane site...basically because it is a simpler explanation.


    In a signal processing circuit, such as one employing a VCA, a secondary signal path in parallel with the main signal path in which the condition or parameter of an audio signal that will cause a processor to begin working is sensed or detected. Typical applications use the side-chain information to control the gain of a VCA. The circuit may detect level or frequency or both. Devices utilizing side-chains for control generally fall into the classification of dynamic controllers.
