Enjoy !

It works well with scope modulators too (lfo, sequencers etc).

Thanks to user feedback , a small bug was found in the current beta, that may make you think it actually does not nothing... but it does.

- You need to select another value than the current one in the Boost Gain menu selector. This will reset it and let sidechain pass through. This will be corrected in the next version.

In mod Mixer v2, modulation is available on inserts 2 and 3 of channel modules.
- Put the "F" pot to a value between 5-10% and 1/3rd, and the gain value at max.
- Adjust the F pot to you liking. if F is too low, the modulation is not heard, and if F is too high, the modulation can be out of range or not heard (it is compressed to the max with 0 dynamics). The F is like a sidechain gain, but it can also change the response curve of the compression.

A modulation or audio source should be connected to the Channel Modules inputs A/B/C/D.
If you want to compress a signal by itself, please choose one the stereo modes for the moment... In a mono channel, the Right channel will be ignored, unless you choose an effect routing that outputs on 2 channels. A mono-Self mode will be added in next version.

Thanks a lot for the useful reports !

I've just put a new version. I hope it works fine this time.

"How to" video :

The drum track is connected to modulator A of the mixer.
Then, playing with Threshold, attack and release change the way the sound responds to the sidechain signal.

About the F, when I said "put it at 5-30%, it is valid with +12 dB gain. With loxer gain, the F must be higher then 50%.

also, i noticed a mistake in M4 module. The Reverse signals are the 4 last. The A/B/C/D modullations are the 4 first entries (of the menu). I will need to correct this (on all modules??) :-/

Thanks, tried it earlier and it works well.

Sorry to hear you have to redo the modulation inputs on mixer now. But it is appreciated. And only when you have time. Thanks again

i just checked, it is much less work than i feared. the design makes it super easy to correct. still needs a bit of time to get at it...

haha, the second french "mini-revolution".... this time they didn't behead anyone... good... :-)
+ and President macron is taking measures to give 100 euros for the lowest salaries as a christmas bonus, + some taxes will be lowered :-)
Politicians will also gather the "letters of grievances" where people write down their complaint and what they want to change . ... Anyway, That's exactly how it was done in the time of Kings and after the french revolution, but hasn't been done since (100 years ago, same kind of revolt by the people of Paris ended up in a massacre (The Miserables by Victor Hugo happens during the paris revolt)...
i've seen some tourists who were not unhappy to be there at this particular moment. it's more interesting than Euro-Disney :-)

I've done all the stereo channels already. mono channels next week end...
