How to apply sidechain to only a kick drum in a drum loop (audio track)

Hey guys!

I’m new to this forum and new to producing/cubase in general. I was just wonder if anyone can help me with a problem that I want to solve. I have a current project with different drum loop layers on top of each other (each one seperately as an audio track). Now how can I make only the kick from a loop punch out?
I figured how I could do it when I only have the kick (as an audio track) but not when the kick is within in an entire loop…

Does anyone know an answer to this? It would really be great :slight_smile:


a multiband compressor? steinberg (the pro version, i do not know about other versions) has one.

You put the kick on its own channel. Then sc that.
