    Sounds like you got it figured out 🙂 No extra routing required. It is a little different than the kick bass sidechain... Put it directly on your master bus, loop the loudest section of the track, and set it so the meter(On gain reduction) is barely moving. Then engage the side chain filter and roll it up to the desired frequency and listen. You will probably not have any movement on your meter now. This allows you to set the compressor more aggressively without pumping. Good luck, hopefully that will get you back on track!
