Side Chain Routing Field

Post by mausmuso » Mon Apr 09, 2018 2:11 am

Hi There,
I am hoping someone can point me to a module that allows connection of any/all available outs so I can drive a compressor side chain.
2448 has such a routing field that gives a drop down menu of available connections.

The other thing that is eluding me is how to hide/show connections so you can turn a channel strip from mono to stereo and the right pads appear/disappear.

Any help will be appreciated

No help unfortunately, but today I realised that all the stock compressors that used to be able to do this, Since scope 7, that function seems to have disappeared/not happen.

I’m looking at what compressors will be able to do side chaining. Only had a very quick look today. Seems a time works one allows side chaining but that means using the compressor before entering the mixer and routing any output from wherever into it. Didn’t actually test, or test the stock compressors to see if doing outside the mixer and routing to the side chain inputs will at least work.

I’m starting to use the modular mixer v2 more, so want the stock compressors to be able to do this again!!! As yes at least the STM2448 compressors built in do this fine! But I’m using that mixer less and less!

DAS 1610 does sidechaining : http://www.hitfoundry.com/issue_11/1610_mst.htm Check out the 'Side Chain Setup' tab there.

Cool, but that’s still outside of the mixer.

The convenience of plonking a compressor into an insert in the mixer and then on the compressor right clicking on the side chain input box(s) and having a drop down list pop up of every available output to drive the compression is and was neat!
