  • Side chain compression

    If we are to think of Bluebox as a way to come completely out of the DAW, a fundamental creative tool is sidechain compression for a classic pumping effect. we already have a powerful compressor.

    I wonder if there are any plans for this? Sidechain compression plus a DJ filter on the master would be my absolute dream tools.

      I sold a Behringer XR18 to buy the Bluebox, the only thing I miss from the XR18 is sidechain!

        EXACTLY this! My XR18 is still hanging around waiting to be sold once the Bluebox has sidechaining.

        If MCU resources are a problem, maybe it would be sufficient to have this functionality on 6 channels or so?

          I fake it by sending certain synths midi or cv LFOs to modulate their volume, but that uses up modulation sources and limits things rhythmically. Plus it's a faff!

            + MIDI modulation eats bandwidth which can make things unstable.

              Yeah, I keep coming back to these forums waiting for an update that says that the next firmware will support sidechaining, it's a big wish I have too

                I agree - In general, I think the bluebox is missing effects for live performance and studio mastering. Besides, some audio analysis tools.

                  Fully agree that both side-chaining and a mastering chain would be a must for this device.

                    This is a very hard term. Mastering for the stage would be interesting indeed. The compressor and EQ are already great for this actually, there's just some saturation and a limiter missing. But mastering for a studio release is totally out of reach for a $600 box.
