    sidechaining is when a plug in, say a compressor, is controlled by something else other than the instrument it is on. say u had a compressor on the sub bass. u could have it controlled by the kick, so when the kick hit the bass was compressed. if that makes sense

    yep, can be very useful. but its not just for compressors, it can be used in most plug-ins. in logic anyway

    Oh you're talking about producing, no wonder why I had no idea what it was, the little turntable thread icon was very misleading
