Alternative Sidechain Methods.

Recommended Posts

What's your alternative sidechain method other than routing your tracks to an Aux or Bus?

i put the side chain compressor (or expander) directly on the target track (e.g. bass) and then use a pre-fader send from the source track (e.g. kick) to the target track compressor. no additional aux tracks or busses needed. doing this i can add several pre-fader sends to other tracks (e.g. rhythmically triggering compressor or other effects on pad tracks).

Yeah. It's what I do at the moment. Everyday I find that it doesn't work that well with certain POP or Hip Hop tracks. With EDM - AUX or a BUS works better.
