I have a prettty standard ultrabeat track with a kick drum every 1st and 3rd beat which ordinarily outputs to stereo output.
In order to sidechain compress some tracks, I need to send the kick drum signal to a bus and then SILENCE the stereo output so I cannot hear it in the mix as I want the signal to ONLY go to a compressor on a pad.
How do I do this? I looked around on the net and couldn't find an answer so I am wondering if one of you could possible explain in detail how to do this.
I tried going to the bottom left in logic where the volume fader is for the track and 'right clicking' the stereo output to see if I had any options to ouput it to a bus, but no success.
I also tried using a send to a bus, but the problem is, the sound of the kick still comes through the mix.
Anyone who knows a solution, would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks a lot in advance!
