Has anyone figured out a way to sidechain in the MPC software???? I came up with a method that I'm testing but I'm not sure if it's working like it would when I use it in my main DAW, (Studio One v3)..... What I did was I pulled up "LFOTool" by Xfer Records and "Kickstart" by DJ Nicky Romero as send effects. I set Kickstart's retrigger options to: 1-SHot, In From Host, & All Notes. From there I chose a dipping preset that I thought did the job. I then took and copied my kick and 808 midi notes to a separate "Program" and erased them from the original Drum Program. With LFOTool, (which has way more setting options), I basically did the same thing. In the midi section, (bottom left), I chose "Note Retrigger". you actually have to click it twice to change the blue button to "ENV". From there you have more options like "Note Gate", "Vel>PWM", "Pitch>Rate", & "Pitch>Cutoff". Now the reason I pulled up both is because if this idea worked, lol, I wanted to see which performed the best. After setting both up, I then went back to what I called the Kick & 808 program and started adjusting the send knobs until it seemed like I was finally achieving a "Sidechaining" affect in the MPC software! I would like for someone else to try this method or if anyone has proven way that works, please drop your comments below.
