My Studio One can't side chain compressing.

That way is, putting the compressor's side chain button. And chose the side chain in inspector's sends, right?

But it can't from 3.5. Is it just a bug?

Excuse me, I'm Japanese and I can't English. Please easy.

Side-chaining compressors works in 3.5.   If you create an aux send to a key input on (for example) the stock compressor, you should see it work as expected.   See the image example below.   It may more be that the signal on the key input is low or weak so you may need to lower the compressor threshold a godd bit to make the compression kick in, or maybe send a hotter signal to the key input.

I think i have the same problem.

I tried with a new song, just kick and bass.

on the send of the kick ,select sidechain - bass track - inserts-1-compressor


I'm no n00b but I can't see what I'm doing wrong here

Monitor-Buttons of Sidechain-Involved tracks have to be off.
