How To Sidechain Your Bassline

How To Sidechain Your Bassline

Get help with Sidechain Compression.

Sidechaining is essential for modern electronic music production.

Without it, you can't really make your kick drum and your bassline fit together.

That makes your mixes sound weak, unfocused and amateur.


This hands-on Session Lesson shows you how to setup sidechaining and make your kick drums explode through the mix.

Take a look at what's inside. 

This is a revolutionary guided Ableton Project where you learn by doing it right inside the program.


What You Will Learn

The lesson takes you through the basics of what sidechain compression IS, how it works, and why we need it.


You'll get a complete understanding of what you need to do, so you'll be able to setup sidechaining in every track you make.

Here's what you will learn:

  • Which sound is being sidechained
  • Which sound is controlling the sidechain
  • How the Compressor Threshold works
  • How much Gain Reduction you need
  • The standard process for sidechaining bass
  • Best settings for Attack Time
  • How Release Time works with your track's bpm
  • Using the Sidechain Input Filter
  • Sidechaining with kick drums, breakbeats, vocals, and non-4/4 sources
  • Creative Sidechain Compression for instruments and FX

Each Activity gives you a specific thing to focus on so you can see what the Compressor is doing and HEAR the result. 

That's how you know you're doing it right.



Learn By Doing It

This is a completely new kind of tutorial that you do right inside Live.

It's called a Session Lesson and it's built into an Ableton project (not on video).

This cuts out the need to keep two windows open for Live and Youtube (major improvement). 

You're going to get hands-on experience setting up the stock Ableton Compressor with the right settings so you can HEAR the difference.

Here's what you see when you open this one.


We go into detail with settings like Threshold, Attack, and Release to make a connection between what sounds good and how to get it from your compressor.


You'll learn how to get perfectly beat-matched rhythm in your low end mixes. 

There's no need to spend a million years trying random settings.


Each step tells you what to listen for, to make sure you can really HEAR what you're doing. 

It's an organized, structured lesson to take you step-by-step through the sidechain setup process to make your mixes sound pro.

By the end you'll be able to set up sidechain compression from any source and make your low end sound amazing!
