    Hey, sorry if this has been answered already, but it looks like a few people have asked this questions without much luck. When you're explaining the 2nd way to sidechain, your video jumps ahead a bit and all of a sudden you have an "all" mixer track that becomes critical to walking yourself through the rest of the video. Apologies if an "all" track is a common thing... care to help us noobs out? Where did that track come from?

    It's weird seeing a tutorial with someone using an actual copy of FL studio. Glad i'm not the only one who owns it legally.

    Not a bad tutorial, but on the second half with the peak limiting method you went from a virgin mixer to suddenly having an "All" label...what is this all label about? Is it the first kick?

    To clarify I get that the control label is for the cloned kick.
