I've made a video showing how a sidechain signal breaks when using the "Transformed to Audio Track" functionality
In essense, it works like this.
- Create an instrument channel and a kick channel
- add a compressor on the instrument channel and sidechain it to the kick.
- perform a Transform to Audio Track on the instrument channel.
- Result. The track is rendered leaving out the sidechain signal on the instrument track.
I would love to have added a feature to the Transform to Audio Track that listens to the sidechain signal when it renders the track.
To clarify things, I've made a video showing how a similar function in Cubase handles this task
