sidechain.one takes a new approach to what a compressor can and should do. sidechain.one isn’t colored and doesn’t impart its own character on your sound sources – it precisely affects only what you need it to and leaves space for the rest of the signal.
Using sidechain frequencies has become a standard technique in mixing and mastering. Most of the time, it is used in the digital domain with plug-ins that can offer this flexibilty and versatility thanks to the nature of digital audio. One of the trendsetters for this approach is Luca Pretolesi. His signature sound is characterized in part by his use of sidechain frequencies in the compressor for a variety of styles, in mono, stereo and specially in M/S applications. Inspired by his workflow, we created a compressor that brings the discreet and pure processing of a digital plug-in into the analog realm. This is sidechain.one.
