I’m trying (and so far failing) to figure out how to set up sidechaining for 3rd-party plugins in Cubase 7.5.
There’s a step-by-step guide here but I can’t get it to work:
I’ve even tried following the above steps for one of the Cubase compressors with a sidechain button that I know will definitely work using the normal method but even that won’t work. To summarise I’m doing the following:
- Press F4 and create new FX bus for compressor with Stereo and Stereo (Ls Rs) child busses
- Go to Audio Sends on track to be used as trigger (e.g. kick) and route it to the Stereo (Ls Rs) bus of FX channel
- Go to Audio Sends on track to be compressed and route it to Stereo bus of FX channel
- Enable sidechain on compressor in FX channel
Can anybody help?
