Hi guys.

I am running cables from my MPC1000's main output into Alesis 3630 Input A and B.
Using Assignable Mix Out 1 and 2 from the MPC into Sidechain A and B on the compressor.

I'm using double Kick techique - feeding one of the kick tracks into the sidechain for the ducksauce.

It works.

I am using stereo link on the 3630 so I only use the A side of the compressor (for now).

After lots of tweaking and testing, I get it to duck somewhat okey, but not like it ducks in some of the videoes I've seen online.

Have I set it up right? Can you tell me if this technique "correct or maybe give me a direction / advice on a better cable setup?

I've read all the other posts on these forums regarding this subject. Any advice is welcome.

Thanks

Do you tried, or possibly need to drive the signal higher into the side chain? Depending on how you did your split, you might not be getting a very hot signal from the kick into your side chain.
