db audioware releases Sidechain Compression [Video Tutorial]

"Sidechain Compression" is db audioware's second online tutorial video. Side-chaining, and side-chain compression in particular, is one of the hottest topics in digital audio production. More DAWs offer native support for the technique than ever before, but side-chaining in software is still thought to be a dark art, judging by the discussions on many audio forums.

The video presents a step-by-step introduction to two of the most popular applications of this useful technique:

  • In broadcast and at live events, Voice Ducking is the classic side-chain compression application in which background music is automatically reduced in volume to allow a voice-over to be heard clearly.
  • In dance music production, side-chain compression can be used creatively to open up space for drum loops and let the mix "breathe".

The video features db audioware's latest Sidechain Compressor plug-in, which is particularly suited to this tutorial role, since its side-chain operates in exactly the same way whichever audio software is in use, whether or not the software offers native side-chain support.
