BACKGROUND: Okay, so my preferred genre of making music is dubstep (hardy har har), HATE ME! And usually I stick with short and punchy kicks, so sidechaining has not been much of a hassle. I've been trying to get into house lately and be to be more melodic in my tracks.
Anyway, my problem is, when making house tracks I use a kick with a long tail. I sidechain the kick to necessary instruments with mixer routing and the FL Limiter. Because the tail of the kick is so long, the effect of the sidechain lasts wayyy too long too.
I know I could use the peak controller and a muted kick (short kick) to overcome this problem, but I don't really want to have 10 silent kicks (each sidechained to an individual instrument) taking up room on my SUPER-MASSIVE monitor.
Just wondering if there is a way to overcome this without using loads of muted kicks. And no, turning down the compression release does NOT work.
Msg 2 da MODZ!!! *This is not FL exclusive. Long tailed kicks will have this effect with any compressor on any DAW*
