New Pro Q3 without Sidechain in dynamic mode?

Is it right? There is no sidechain function in dynamic mode?
For such expensive EQ? Look at trd nova, it is FREE and have this function.

Please think about.

Cheers, keep rocking


Hi Peter,

We've already discussed it here:

In short, we omitted it to keep the feature set straightforward, but due to all the feedback we received, we're considering adding it in an update.

+1 per band sidechain

+1 million for per band sidechain. Kind of shocked this wasn't included.


Interesting to not include side chain hoping customers wouldn't notice or care. Seems like a bit of a gap somewhere - between fabfilter and their understanding of customers? That's odd considering they get everything else right. I wonder if there are stakeholders who are primarily business driven that veto'ed everyone else there saying they have to include sc. It's the only thing I can think of as bean-counters usually don't care about people. Or, FF just hoped. Really strange to see this occur from a company that otherwise understands customer needs. Oh to have been a fly on the wall in the business meetings.


Please also consider a money back phase for those who updated but didn't want the sidechain feature and would then have to pay for the ui cluttering, the processing overload and new bugs...


Also for anyone wondering where to get this functionality you can get it from TDR nova. it's decent, but lacks the masking markers.


Please add this feature. This is the only thing about Pro-Q3 that does not make sense... Everything else is brilliant, but the omission is an odd choice.


External side chain triggering is going to be in the next update, to be released very soon!
