In case of a Compressor, when the secondary (side chain) signal is stronger, the compressor acts more strongly to reduce output gain. This is used by disc jockeys to lower the music volume automatically when speaking; in this example, the DJ's microphone signal is routed to a stereo compressor's side chain input. The main music signal is routed through compressors main input, so that whenever the DJ speaks, the compressor reduces the volume of the music, a process called ducking.

10.6.2 Side Chaining in G-Stomper

The following Effects in G-Stomper support Side Chaining over FX Input2: Compressor/Limiter

Compressor/Limiter II

Compressor (simple) Limiter (simple)


Transient Shaper LP Filter 24dB * LP Filter 12dB * HP Filter 24dB * HP Filter 12dB * BP Filter 12dB *

Notch Filter 12dB * Moog LP Filter 24dB * Moog HP Filter 24dB * Vocoder A (8-Band) ** Vocoder B (8-Band) ** Vocoder C (8-Band) ** Vocoder d (8-Band) **

* In case of the Filters the Side Chain signal controls the Envelope Follower.

** In case of the Vocoders the Input2 is used to provide Carrier (Synth) signal to the Vocoder (while Input1 provides the Modulator (Voice) signal).

By default, when you use the FX Send button to pass a track audio signal to an FX, it uses Input1. To send a signal to the Input2, long click the FX Send Button.
