Looking for a good way to do a rhythmic gate
A couple questions actually and thank you to everyone who has been responding. This is my first piece of hardware and I'm needing to change the way I think about how I do things. Anyway I'm looking for a good way to do rhythmic gating on certain sounds. In specific drones, pads, and vocals. I could use the sidechain but as it is currently being used to act as a pumping effect I can't really do that at the same time since sidechain is global. About the best I could figure out is slicing what I'm wanting to gate and just removing pieces in the sequencer. I also thought I could use the per step automation but per the instructions it only works per note instance which won't work because of longer notes. Anyone have a good way to do rhythmic gating?
Second question is when using the sidechain to duck my bass I get a really loud popping or clicking noise when the envelope releases. It only seems to happen on the bass though. Haven't heard it on any other track elements. I've tried messing with the release and the shape and tried different envelope speeds. Nothing seems to work. It doesn't seem to matter on how little of the sidechain effect I add either. Just changes how loud the popping is. Any ideas on what I could try here.
I did search the topics and didn't find anything for either topic but I may have missed something.
Again sorry for all the questions and thank you for all the help everyone has been so far.
