Maybe I'm doing this wrong from the get-go(the sidechain thing) but here's my dilemma: I'm producing some dance tracks with a healthy amount of sidechained compression on various elements--for example, the synth bass will have a Logic compressor set to side-chain off the kick drum. The way I'm doing this is, I send my kick drum to a buss, and mute that buss. Then in the synth bass channel, I insert the compressor, and set the sidechain to said buss where the kick is going. Works fine when I'm mixing myself, but I have a few songs where I need to bounce out individual stems to send to someone else to mix(for TV). I do this by soloing each track and bouncing individually, as I have lots of automation going on with send levels to buss effects and whatnot. But, when I do this, of course, I lose the sidechain's effect on the compressor. I realized I had the kick's send set to "post fader", so I switched it to "pre fader", then solo'ed my synth bass, soloed the kick, and pulled the fader down on the kick. I was getting the sidechain working that way for the bass stem, but the level of the signal that's reaching the sidechain is now all screwy--it's different than it was when I had it set to "pre-fader". I assume that I simply now need to go in and re-adjust the compressor settings, levels and whatnot, but I have a good many tracks like this, so, before I roll my sleeves up...am I doing this the right(best) way? I'm on Logic 9.1.4 BTW Any tips appreciated!
