Great insight into the basic understanding of sidechain to more advanced use of it. It's geared mostly to EDM which as far as understanding is the prime user of sidechain. Really enjoyed discovering very advanced and creative way to use sidechain. Now my only complaint is Multiplier don't often go in deep details when your curiosity gets spurred. Still enjoyed watching this class.
