When side chaining do the compressors controls become dedicated to the ext signal?
I think all of them do but with auto gain on my bass which is the main track getting side chained to a kick seems to be getting slammed , at this point I wanted to just use the compressor for side chaining so I should just leave the auto gain off? As dialing in the type of compression I would like for the bass is not doable since the compressors controls seem to be dedicated to the incoming signal. Danny mentions he likes to leave auto gain on but this is completely giving my bass so much gain, and in this step I’m just trying to achieve the side chaining so would it be best to leave auto gain off? Is there something I’m missing? Is there a better way to dial the settings in as just to leave he compressor purpose to side chaining and not boosting the track as a whole?
