...OK, maybe not everything, but a lot of things can be modulated by the sidechain (and different drums can trigger by different amounts, etc.).
I've been busy moving cities, but wanted to do a video where I started from a brand new synth patch and only edited the sound via patching parameters to sidechain. Some of it is more useful than others (sidechain to increase the arp rate can be very fun), but thought I'd share.
Anyone know of a good tutorial for this? This video, the official Synthstrom video and others let you hear what happens when combining with something other than a kick, and are enlightening with the possibilities, but don't really explain how to do it and are difficult to follow along with. The manual is also very light in this regard.
Are you just trying to use something other than a kick to trigger the sidechain? Let's say you want the snare instead:
- Open your kit
- Select the snare by pressing the corresponding audition pad on the right
- Press shift+ the "Send" pad in the sidechain section of the grid
- Dial in the amount by which you want the snare to trigger the sidechain
That's pretty much it. You can also adjust the amount the kick sends to the sidechain if you wanted it less than full, for example.
Are you sure you're pasting at the same position on the scale and the same zoom level? The Deluge will let you paste it anywhere (different zoom levels or different scale position), which can be great for making quick variations.
If you want it in the exact same spot just make sure your zoom level and scale position are the same before you paste.
