In this premium tutorial video for Pro Tools Expert, Technical Editor James Ivey shows you how to use the Side Chain input on a compressor to allow the kick drum to cut through a mix. This is a great technique that will give your mixes some pump and drive.
The Key, or Side Chain, input on a compressor is a very handy tool. In this premium video tutorial, you will learn how to set up a Pro Tools session so the drive of the kick drums triggers the compressor to push the level of the main program material under the kick drum. This is a trick that is commonly used in dance music. It gives a mix that tasteful pumping feeling but it can work in any style where you want the kick drum to pop out.
