What Is Side Chain?

- Jun 23, 2018-

The side chain is a special signal-controlled compression method of the compressor. The strength of the side chain signal can control the signal output of the left and right channels of the compressor. When the side chain signal reaches a certain degree (or larger), the left and right channel signals enter a compressed state, and the output signal of the limiter becomes smaller; when the side chain signal is small, the output signal of the limiter becomes large, such control called voice-over control.
