I would like to be a member of the sidechain gang

Postby shadowfax » Tue Jul 22, 2014 10:01 pm

But I can't seem to get it to work :(
I want to use a vocal track as the trigger to tone down a specific frequency on an acoustic guitar so's it doesn't fight with the vocal too much, when the vocal has stopped I want the guitar to continue as was before compresion of specific frequency,
tried using Fabfilter pro-C which has a sidechain facility, switched the sidechain on after placing Pro-C as an insert on the guitar track and went to the vocal track send expecting to see the sidechain option but it aint there :o
tried the same with Izotope Alloy 2..both are VST3,

I just know I'm being thick and missing something obvious but I wish I knew what :?
normal sidechain compression with the cubase compressor works fine.

can anyone help me please,

cheers, Kevin

Hehe...

Nothing to add on the routing, though I'd suggest that you try using a side-chained dynamic EQ instead of a side-chained multiband compressor. Much more tuneable and unobtrusive results.
