future-proof your side-chain setting: Group the track you side-chain to and sidechain to the group

Post by baseinstinct » Mon Oct 26, 2020 1:13 pm

There have been many times that the track I would sidechain to would be turned to audio or otherwise replaced. If the track disappears, the sidechain link in all the effects on the 'dependant' tracks get reset.

There is a quick workaround. At any point if you want to side-chain to a track, group it and sidechain to the group.

So far, has worked fine, especially useful when the project is still at an early stage.
