In sidechain mode, the gain reduction of smart:comp is controlled by an external signal that is routed to the sidechain of the plug-in.
smart:comp provides two ways of working with a sidechain signal: broadband ducking (spectral ducking disabled) or frequency-dependent ducking (spectral ducking enabled).
Sidechain ducking (broadband)
1. Route a signal to the sidechain input
Route the signal you want to give space in the spectrum to the input of smart:comp. This signal will control the ducking process.
2. Enable sidechain ducking
Click the sidechain ducking switch to enable sidechain ducking. The color of all blue control elements will now turn turquoise to indicate the new processing mode.
As well, the sidechain signal will be displayed in turquoise in the interactive compressor display and the input meter will show the level of the sidechain signal.
Now the (broadband) gain reduction of smart:comp will be controlled by the level of the sidechain signal.
Spectral ducking (frequency-dependent)
In order to seamlessly merge signals that are competing for attention within the same spectral regions, smart:comp provides a unique frequency-dependent sidechain mode.
In this mode, smart:comp ‘listens’ for potential spectral clashes between the input and the sidechain signals. By dynamically ducking affected frequency regions of the input signal, it creates space for the sidechain signal.
To enable spectral ducking, (1) follow the steps outlined for broadband ducking and (2) start a learning process.
The spectral compressor display will now show where smart:comp compresses the input signal to give space to the signal routed to the sidechain input.
To control the impact of the spectral ducking process, use the sensitivity dial. If you are using a sensitivity close to 0%, the spectral ducking process will become more and more broadband and less frequency-selective.
