Side Chain Cubase Elements 9

Hi all,

quick question : my current Cubase essential 5 doesn’t allow me to use some of my plugins (such as waves Vocal Rider) in sidechain mode. If I was to update to Elements 9, would it let me enable the side chain function of the pluggin?
I have seen that elements 9 doesn’t have ‘‘side chain inputs’’ unlike the other versions but i am not sure what that means.

thank you

Well, it means what it says: It doesn’ t have sidechain inputs. And obviously no sidechain inputs - no sidechaining in VST 3 mode
