Key input for a gate using Cubase SX2

Post by andyg666 » Tue Oct 24, 2006 11:35 am

I am mixing a demo for my hip-hop band. Unfortunately, we did not record to a click, so I'd like to use the kick drum track as a key input to trigger a gate to open on a secondary kick drum or subwooferish type of sound. Does anyone know of any plugins that can accomodate this in Cubase SX2?

I guess theres a way to do it using the surround buss...

Havent tried it yet but maybe it will be of some help to you...

Its a work around because the VST archetecture in versions up to Cubase SX 3 didnt accomodate sidechaining. Apparrently the new spec (VST 2?) Has the ability for this kind of routing... Plug in manufacturers will hopefully take advantage!
