So far i have used only Cubase’s own effect plugins for effects (mainly sidechaining).
Works without problems.
Now I wanted to try a third party compressor: namely the Solid Dynamics compressor which comes with NI Komplete and also has a sidechain option.
Unfortunately it does not work although I do everything exactly like I do when I use sidechaining with the Cubase compressor
What am I missing?
I load the compressor as an audio insert effect into an instrument track (e.g. a pad sound)
I note that there is no sidechain button visible on the Cubase plugin interface header. However, this might be normal, as the SD plugin itself has an activation button.
But even when I activate it (it’s called SC Gain) the pad does not show up under Output when I open the Sends dropdown of the trigger instrument (e.g. kick)
Does anyone have an idea how it works?
