Get Tracks Interacting with Each Other Using Side Chain Compression
For the next few 2 Minute Ableton Tips we will be exploring sidechaining. Side chaining is a very effective way to get your tracks to react to each other.

Anyway, Ableton Live has three devices that can be side chained together: The Compressor, The Gate, and The Auto Filter. This week will deal with the Compressor.
Be sure to check back next time as we discuss side chaining the Auto Filter!
