    Ok I have a track called "sweep" in the mixer with Parametric EQ 2, Fruity Free Filter and Limiter for the effects. I have another track on the mixer called "Snare" which has Parametric EQ 2 on it. When I try to sidechain the sweep to the snare, it works. But the filter and eqing from the sweep apply to the snare now. So now throughout the song the snare has a low pass filter on it and it sounds like crap.

    Question: How do I sidechain the sweep to the snare without the effects from the sweep applying to the snare?

    I don't know how FL Studo works but I would suggest trying to put the compressor that you are using for the sidechain first in the order of effects :)

    try applying the sidechain to a cloned version of the snare that's plays but doesn't make a sound, only simulates the snare for the sidechaining effect.


    Or just use the peek controler here is a video to do so.
