In this FL Studio Tips video, Max Venus shows you how to apply sidechain compression to your instruments. Using a kick drum as the sidechain input to the compressor you’ll learn how to ‘duck’ other elements of your track in line with the kick to create a pumping effect. Max also shows you how a third-party envelope shaping plug-in can achieve the same results, and how FL Studio’s automation options can create the effect.
