    Is there a way to sidechain several tracks without the need to copy and paste everything?

    Thank you so much for this tutorial. I've always loved trance and wondered how they did that "pulsating" sound with a saw lead. Once again, Thanks a lot!

    So much simpler to link to a compressor in the fx chain. Not nearly as buggy.

    You are talking a lot. This video is in fact just about 3 minutes but you always talk unnecessarily.

    i use an unmuted peak controller to control the gain knob on a limiter on one of the send channels which also has a gross beat for kick-less pulsing which is automated and send the channels which i want to duck. i can further control the levels via the knobs on fruity send (you might get some artifacts). or much more simply use the side chain on the limiter.

    FYI: an LFO is just that, a low frequency oscillator hooked directly into the controller. if you mach the speed to your BPM you get a simple gross beat.

    what if you want it to side chain your lead over more than just one measure or whatever?  i always found it really weird to drag out the step sequencer measures upon measures out just to match the lead and beats up.....

    What if I do this and my track sounds worse? I sidechained the kick to my main instrument (a Nexus piano preset) and it sounds weird as fuck. Surely this can't always make a track better.

    how can you do it on more than one channel, do i have to make another side chain?
  25. Yeee Beatz

    on February 23, 2017 at 1:26 am -

    What if you use kick in & kick out? Can you side chain both with the lead channel?

    What people here don't seem to understand is that sidechaining, like any other production technique, is one to be mastered and which can be used in many different ways. Don't think this will make you a production hero all of a sudden, it's just one of the endless tools in music production ;)

    +Tyler Clark This work perfectly but I have one issue; I already have a volume envelope controlling what I want to side chain, so normally the sound I want to side chain would fade out slowly with my volume envelope. However when I link it to the side chain controller it overwrites the other volume controller envelope to fade it out. So meaning it ignores the previous controller that would fade out the sound, and now it just side chains. Whereas I want it to side chain AND follow my volume envelope not just one, both. Know what I mean? And how to resolve this? Thanks - Luke

    Nice, but does anyone know how to sidechain more than one track? i have tryed repeating the process for another channel but it does not seem to work :L kinda sucks, and i can't put all the sounds i want in one mixer track because i don't want them to share the same effects.

    Thanks alot dude, I finally now understand, and this will make my tracks much better, just a quick question... - "What is a lead, is it just like the main melody or...?" (I started 2 weeks ago and still learning stuff #nohate :P)

    If you ignore the very first 5 mins of this video (I call it the "talkative one"), the rest of it is really simple, helpful & great tool to use! Good one Tyler Clark!

    So that's how these famous artists try to cover up their crap, by sidechaining! 
    And it's true! My crappy tracks are not that crappy after I apply sidechaining to it!
