52 Reason / Record Tips - Week 43: The Side-Chain Compression Effectposted 2011-01-14 at 15:53
If you've been listening to a song in the past several years and found
yourself overcome with a compulsion to bop, bounce, head-nod, or otherwise
pulse to the music it maybe be due in large part to side-chain compression.
In a previous tutorial I've already shown you how tasteful compression works to level out a track like a bass guitar, for instance. "Side-chain" compression deliberately uses another sound source to tell the compressor how to behave and the desired effect is often anything but subtle. I'll show you one of the most common uses this week: using a four-on-the-floor kick drum to make a synth pulse to the beat.
Doing this gives your synth lines a near-hypnotic bounce effect. Get out your glow sticks and follow along!
