thanks garyb for the replies !

still learning, that's why i like scope so much, never ends :)

i'd like to know little more about sidechaining, which modules/devices should i use ?
i saw one device here, sc insert, is this for what i'm looking for ?

maybe also project picture, for example ? would be very happy

side-chaining is mostly something used on a compressor. the idea is to have another signal control the action of an effect other than the signal being affected.

it's a very useful technique, but not for very many different situations. it's something that gets used in a limited fashion. it's not something that is a basic skill(even though it's stupidly easy, just assign the signal of choice to the side-chain input).

primarily, in my case, would be useful for kick + bass.

something like this ?
it's a simple project for testing.
Prisma synth - bass sound (mono) to ducker and inside ducker out from Kick Me (out GraphL).
