    If I may, fellow Reaper users,

    Side chaining is awesome on REAPER. It took me a bit to get it in my head. I knew I had it down the first time (all on my own) I figured out how to use and eq to split my track and sent the output of of the eq to a gate which I used to trigger a compressor that was using lp and hp filters. I effectively took a loud snare out of the vocal mic which the drummer was shaking his maraca's into. Leaving a nice even maraca shaker to sit in the drum mix without having a huge bleeding prob with a snare.

    So I saw a great discussion on the reaper forum that was posted a fantastic explanation of the routing needed to sidechain ANYTHING.
    Have a look, it's a few posts down in the thread. I'm posting the thread link instead of the individual post, so that there is some context if needed.

    My original sidechain post.. I was just wanting to confirm I was going about things correctly.
