The elusive art of using Sidechains and Side Chain Compression to make tracks come alive is one of the most exciting musical weapons in your arsenal. In this 11 video tutorial series, Studio One 3 expert Michael Tomblin makes Sidechaining creative, fun and easy.
Michael starts by going over the basic definition of what Sidechaining is, and how to use the Sidechain input in Studio One 3. From there, the creative experiments begin! Michael shows you how to Sidechain the Kick and Snare to effects on the Bass Track to get that classic, pumping dance bass, among other uses.
Next, Michael gives you an example of some rhythmic possibilities when you Sidechain Snares and Hi-Hats to Instrument Tracks. Still focused on drums, Michael demonstrates how Sidechaining the Snare to the Effects and Room Tracks can add width and depth to your drum processing. Sidechaining the Toms to the Instrument Tracks is also shown, and how it can create space and increase the impact of the Toms.
Michael then covers using Ghost Tracks and Looping Ghost Tracks in his next 2 videos. You’ll learn how tracks that you don't send to the outputs can be sent to a Sidechain Input for unique rhythmic and creative results.
Finally, Michael covers how you can use Sidechaining with Multi-Band Processors and other built-in Studio One 3 processors for some Transformative Groove Effects. Lastly, see how Sidechaining can be used when Mixing Dialog and Music together.

not bad, some techniques are useful but the music is not meaningful, only few loop tracks
the problem with such music examples is that they don't have relation to the reality in a professional production - its easy to play around with some demo loop tracks - everything seems to work spectacular. but in the real daily station wth 50 plus tracks the things work very different... well don nevertheless!

Very well done!
Really well laid out, with clear examples. I only wish he had used examples from a greater variety of musical styles. It's mostly EDM.

Response from Customer Service:
Thank you for the review. We're glad the tutorial was helpful.
Just so you know, sidechaining isn't genre specific so you can apply the same technique to any type of music regardless of what examples are used.
I hope that clears it up!
