What comp to use for sidechaining?

#1
Have never done sidechaining before as i have never needed to do it but i want to experiment with it a bit.

It looks fairly easy to set up but want your opinions on the best comps to use?

I cant do it with the ssl comp. Can i do it with the Neve 33609?

Have heard a lot of people use it for running kicks through so thought id have a mess around with it. might be usefull for my hardcore stuff Smile

Assuming you mean sidechaining the bass to the kick or similar, then;

It's an absolute nightmare in SX, the VST spec doesn't support it (yet). You can fudge it using surround channels, but I haven't ever got it to work. Search for Cubase sidechain surround and you're bound to get some results...

And no the 33609 won't do it.

None of the UAD comps have key inputs (bar the internal sidechain in the 88RS), so no.

You do it a fair bit, dont you TITanium?

I heard it is alright.. The sidechaining is good but it still sounds a bit plasticky in comparison to *ahem* better *ahem* plugs Smile But it is meant to be good... I got that thing off the back of the same lory and I'll try it soon Smile
