Sidechain Channel on Mute [SOLVED]


Recommended Posts

Hey Forum,


Ever since I updated my copy of Logic I'm not able to sidechain a track/instrument with a bass kick for example WHILE its on mute.


I used to be able to do that with the previous version, and used it a lot.


An example would be right after a chorus/drop where everything goes to silent and a synth is brought in slowly with the sidechain in/out effect.


Any help would be appreciated.

The audio routing has stayed the same over all the various Logic versions. Nothing has changed. However, whether or not your signal will be available to a sidechain input when you mute the channel strip in Fast (Remote Channel Strip) mode depends on a few factors:


If your kick is on an audio track, you can mute the audio track and its signal is still available as a sidechain.


If your kick is on a software instrument track, you would have to send the signal pre-fader to be able to mute the track and still have the signal available as a sidechain.

This really messes up my workflow. Is there anyone who can save a channel strip settings with the right settings and post it?


I have a non-audio sidechain that I want to stay unmute as I am soloing different tracks that uses the bus for sidechaining.
