Midi Side Chain Input

I would really love to see midi side chain inputs for Gate and Compressor.

Sounds interesting how would it differ from the audio input?


Would it be higher notes open the gate more or something?

Well, it makes it a lot neater if you wanted to do some rhythmic gating. Actually, the first plugin that I ever owned that was side chain capable was the GAG-1 by Khaereus Audio. It's a gate, but it had a "ducking" feature, and it also had the ability to respond to midi note triggers. Currently, I have Fabfilter's compressor and gate plugins, and they respond to midi triggers, but I thought it would be nice if Live's native plugins had the same functionality.
