Using sidechain to get a rhythmic effect in VST plugins
« on: November 20, 2018, 03:05:28 PM »
I'd like to experiment with recording using the kind of rhythmic control over instrument signal level synced to a track as Johnny Marr did with his guitar on 'How Soon Is Now' in which a drum machine is inserted into a compressor's sidechain (see this YouTube demo).

I use Cubase AI which has a VSTDynamics processor with a sidechain function, though I don't think it can be used this way. Is there a free VST compressor/gate that enables its sidechain to be controlled by a rhythmic input? Perhaps someone will educate me on how to achieve what I want.
