I’ve got this guitar track with a lot of string noise, which I’ve given up trying to get rid of, so I’ve decided to record it as two tracks, one for each chord.
Now, I think I’m going to end up doing this with each track playing just the needed bit but (not having thought of the obvious first!) so far I’ve got a track with one chord throughout, which I was hoping to duck out when the other track played the chord change, i.e.:
Track 1: constant F (to keep the rhythm going)
Track 2: occasional G as required, sent (via aux) to side-chain of inserted effect on Track 1.
I want Track 2 to cause Track 1 to duck out completely. I’ve only got native plugins available but couldn’t get the compressor to go down to inf and can’t see anything else to do it. It seems like it should be possible but can’t see the way.
PS: I know in this case I might be better off doing it another way but I want to know how to do it anyway.
