Ahn no, i figured they weren't out yet that's why i was trying to manually change the EVFs and FUNs pages on current programs. I will take a look on what updated comp programs are available thanks 8-)

Hi, I'm lost. I've never done side-chaining before. So could you just explain the basics in Reaper. I really don't have a clue at all about side-chaining. (I came from Pro Tools le (no sidechaining.)
Thank you so much in advance!

Thanks, what I'm lost on is the specific chaining in Reaper that is necessary. I've been doing the Google search and all, and it seems like I'm doing it right but when I try to use the side chain programs my reduction is not working properly (barely any reduction that hardly changes when I change the Threshold.
So I figure I haven't quite got the fix on it, It makes more sense using a drum or something to trigger the sidechain, but how do I use the audio in the track itself to set up the sidechain in Reaper?
I'll keep researching but any specific routing info would be awesome!

@Ramana:

What do you want to do specifically?

1) Use side-chain to 'trigger' compression or

2) use side-chain to filter out frequencies

I would like to use side-chain to filter out frequencies. Also what are the general guidelines for where to set the high-pass filter to make the compression sound more natural on material with lower frequency content.

Thanks

You need to make a copy of the track (or route it to two tracks). Put a high pass filter on one off them (75-150 Hz is ccommon). Send this track to channel 3 and 4 off the other track. Put the sidechain compressor on the receiving track and you are good to go ;)
