What following tutorial?? And I'm guessing you want to duck the subbass with the kick??What you do is, create a audio splitter for the kick (or sound you want to be the ducker). Connect the output of the kick to it. Route one (L+R pair) output back to where the kick output was first going. Then route the next one (L+R pair) into the "Dynamics" input on the back of the SubBass (or the sound you want to duck) "Mix Channel". Now enable the "Gate" in the SSL for the SubBass (sound that is being ducked). Play with the knobs concerning the gate, particulary the "Thresh" and "Range" until you see compression is happening (via the meter above the "Gate Section". This should pulse with the kick (or sound that is ducking the Sub). Now fine tune the "Gate Knobs" to taste. Cheers SideChain Compression ala SSL
