Greetings all! Excited to get into the world of MPCs. Got my first MPC product MPC LIVE a few days ago and have been making progress learning the ins and outs. I have an immediate question though, how do you apply compression to a track say bass but side chained to the kick? I went through the manual a few times but just can't find any info on side chain for all the available compressor effects. Any ideas folks? :(

No side chain yet. Maybe in the future, but who really knows.

If you must side chain I’d get a cheap compressor with the feature and run it back into the live. Was thinking about an older Alesis micro compressor. It was like 50 bucks so it would have been worth the attempt.

Oh thanks. No side chain? Seroulsy Akai?

Is there any workaround inside MPC LIVE that could possibly create bass ducking kick effect?
