Is side chaining available in Artist and elements?

Hi all, I purchased Elements LE 7 a while back and was very annoyed to discover that the side-chaining option was greyed out as it wasn’t available in that version of Cubase. They certainly didn’t make that clear…
I was wondering if it is available in version 8 of either Artist or Elements?
Many thanks,


No, unfortunately not!

Thanks for the reply. Just to clarify though, not even in Artist is side-chaining possible?

Sidechaining is available in Artist.

If it isn’t it damn well should be! Side-chaining is a must for contemporary electronic music production.
