Estudio Blost Posted September 19, 2011 Share Posted September 19, 2011 Hi everyone! ) It seems quite difficult for me to find any input on this topic all over the net, so I'd like to ask something over here, in case someone could give me a helping hand. Lately, I've been working on an electronic music project (completely done with Logic 9 & Reason), and in the mixes of almost all songs, I use to apply a little amount of side chain compression (ducking) to the electric guitar parts (there are a lot of guitar parts as this is an electro/rock project). as I'm also supposed to be the live guitarist of this band for future gigs, my question is: If I want to try to sidechain the sound of my guitar on stage in order to sound as close as I can to the guitar sound on the final mix of our cd,...which would be the easiest and effective way to do it? is there any chance to get some tutorials out there on how to do it properly? I'd also like to know if you guys think this is a non sense idea, or it's a common practice in the "live" scenario and if there are out there many bands that do so! Of course there are many parts where no ducking effect is needed, so I'm wondering how to deal with that! just in case you want to know, for the gigs, I'm planning to use Logic 9 on a MacBook Pro with an M-Audio Profire 2626 audio device. I wonder if the solution would be to take the guitar signal through one channel of the audio devide and then through Logic 9 (in order to automate the signal with the Logic Compressor) and then take the output back and connect it to the input of my amplifier (using a Reamp box). I guess it could be a posibility but, would the logic compressor react fine with a clean DI signal instead of a distorted signal (as in the mixing stage)? hope you find my question interesting and if this has been covered in another thread, please,...excuse me!!!...I've done some searches with no luck finally, sorry if there are some mistakes when I write. My english is not that good I'd wish!! ) Thanks a lot in advance guys!!...you rock! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
