kevin, kevinn Sidechain Tutorial

00:0000:42

A quick short tutor sesh from my understandings of the tool

To my explanations: Threshold lowers the volume of the input when the sidechain is triggered.

Ratio is how much time it takes for the volume to return to normal.

Sidechaining your sounds makes your drums sound powerful, as if they are an important factor of the piece, which they are.

    you have a couple errors in the desc fyi

    threshold is how loud a signal has to be for compression to trigger

    ratio is by how much the signal is being compressed (1:2 = 1/2 the volume, etc)

    the release knob is what affects how long it takes for the signal to return to normal

      multiple ways to achieve the same idea, this is just my idea "To my understandings" but I never noticed you could use aux send. Cool :)
