sidechain compression????????

    Apr 15 2011 | 8:31 pm
    so i am a complete noob.
    I want to sidechain compress something (say pink-) against something else (a kick).
    I have spent hours with the 'ducking' tutorial and have got nothing except agitated and awful distorted noises. I have also tried taking apart the innards of the OMXs to no avail.
    please help me out
    ideally what ever i used would have a release function. I have built a compressor that 'ducks' pink- when the kick sounds, put comes straight back up.
    please help.

      see in the examples folder: Max5/examples/effects/kompressor
      specifically: Max5/examples/effects/kompressor/lib/komp.maxpat
      where you can see an inlet to plug sidechain in.
