Using Sidechain on Compressor FX
Hi BM3 friends,
I have a problem and I'm wondering if anyone could help me with a solution. I'm looking to set up a bank with a sidechain input that I can trigger freely by striking a pad, so I am choosing the 'Select Pad' option in the Dynamics Processor set to Compressor (in Audio FX) . However, I would like my chosen pad to make no noise when I press it, so it acts only as a sidechain, and does not emit any audio (I'm hoping to be able to achieve the 'sucking' action of a compressor here). However, when I turn down the gain or volume on my chosen sample, it ceases to act as a sidechain.
Any bright ideas?
