hey man if it’s just sidechaining you’re after, ableton’s compressor is more than able to handle the task. it has a great signal filtering eq, and the release is very responsive. you can get some extreme sidechain effects when you crank down on the threshold. since taking Danny’s courses, I’ve switched to Logic for mixing and am loving it but I still prefer using ableton’s compressor to sidechain with over fabfilters, just a personal preference but the others just don’t seem to to bounce the same way. people bag on ableton’s native fx all the time but most of that is just unfounded bias and holds no weight. i used to talk with bassnectars mastering engineer, seth drake, quite regularly and he ran alot of tests on ableton’s fx (Lorin himself uses ableton to produce, mix, and perform in). his opinion was that ableton’s fx are very able.
