On the previous page I asked about sidechaining a drum loop to my bass and snare drum. Someone kindly helped me with that but I'm in a situation now where I want to sidechain two loops to my kick and snare. How do I do this? I tried linking it but it seems to end up sidechaining either one or the other.
Like DOT said, you could put the loops to the same mixer channel. Or you could have them in separate channels, then route those two to one mixer channel and sidechain that one. I think a better solution would be to just have two compressors sidechained to each one separately. Hope that works!
Also to your previous question about inserting rests into your music. No one mentioned reducing the 'release'. I think that is your problem here. The fruity sampler has a ADSR envelope (Attack, Delay, Sustain, and Release). The release controls how long it takes for the volume to fade after you have stopped playing the note. It may have been a problem with reverb and delay, and you could automate the volume separately, but I think it's easier this way. I used to pick samples and they would play full length even after I let go of the key. It was so frustrating because I couldn't figure out why, then I found out about this and problem solved. Hope that helps!
