About sidechain compression?
I am wondering in how many cases when making songs are sidechain compression needed? Can you do anything without it, or is it sort of needed to make the song come "alive" with it's pulsing properties?
I've made a song without sidechain compression, but i'm not sure if it were such a good idea to leave the song without it.
Besides when would it be a "proper" moment to use sidechain? Are there any thumb rules about it?
