Drumlab internal sidechain compression?

    Hello all,

    I wondered if it is normal for the kickdrum in Drumlab to push all the other parts of the kit away? It is very noticable on the cymbals. When I hit the cymbal and then after that I hit the kick, the tail of the cymbal will get compressed every time I hit the kick, like it is being compressed with the kick as the sidechain imput. It is very annoying! I didn't really mind in the beginning, thinking I could turn it off somehow, but I can't seem to..

    This, along with other weird issues, such as not playing midi patterns correctly if they are not from the 'grooves' section (3rd party midi patterns), makes me really bummed out I bought this product.

    Wondering the same thing (although I haven't listened to your audio example as of yet)

    I have the same issue, but in my case, this is something that i really like in DrumLab.
    But when bouncing this internal sidechain is not present anymore, so the drum tracks don't sound as in should in my DAW.

    I wonder how could I reproduce that, any tips ?
