asked May 3, 2016 in StudioLive Series Feature Requests by aaronfolb (430 points)
I feel like sidechain compression capability is now a must-have for a lot of different genres: electronic, indie, pop, hip-hop, etc.  Is this a possibility/planned for a future update??  I can get a similar effect with the gate & key input, but I then I can't use the gate for simple utility noise-gating, and I can't fine tune the envelope as much since it's a simple open/closed function, as opposed to the compressor which provides continuous/variable volume attenuation.
