How to Use Compression & Sidechaining in Fairlight

Did you know you can control the volume of one track relative to another?

In this video by Travis from Ripple Training, you’ll hear how you can use the output of one channel to affect the output of another.

First we’ll edit a voice track using the compressor, then implement sidechaining to affect some music.

You’ll learn:

  • How to affect dynamic range of a track with the compressor
  • Using make up control to compensate for that change
  • Use the send and listen buttons for sidechaining

This is a great technique for audio ducking without doing any keyframing. What do you think? Going to use this feature for your next project?
