Side Chain Not Working PT 2018

Im sending my kick to my bass track through a send and I can see the side chain on the analyzer but the dynamic node is not compressing to the kick rhythm. its still compressing to what the bass is. Not sure if Im missing something here


found it.... the button isn't visible at first. you have to turn off auto and then click the tiny side chain button. you should put that in your "how to" explanation on the website


Hi JP,

Glad you found this out. We will see if we can make this more clear in the user interface and/or manual.

I am using Cubase Pro 10 running the VST3 version of Pro Q 3 and I do not see the sidechain button. Is this function disabled in the 30 day demo version?

I have no issues using the sidechain function in Pro C 2 so I know I am setting it up correctly in Cubase.


Never mind, I had not downloaded the latest demo version from this site, I got my demo from Pluginboutique and it looks like they have an old 3.0 version


We always recommend to download from our site instead.
