    Hi All,
    I have Cubase 5.

    I want to use sidechain compression in Cubase 5 with the VC 160 and other compressors in the bundle. It says you can sidechain and I am able to turn it on.


    With the other VSTi that use sidechaining, I can see the sidechain available in the SENDS part of the channel I want to be the signal for the sidechain. The problem, however, is that this does not show up as a choice for sends....

    Could someone please advise? Every google search I've made turns up irrelevant.

    The answer in this thread worked for me...

    One thing that is not pointed out clearly in the thread is that the VST (VC 2A, etc) needs to be in the INSERTS the GROUP (quadro) track.

    All technical intricacies aside, it works and sounds good. The built-in cubase plugins that do SC are much easier; the compressors with SC turned on immediately show up as a choice in any SEND channel.

    :) I am just very happy the VC Bundle was 50% off last week. Thanks NI!
