Sidechained re­verb

04:14 Piñata’s flute lead needs to cut through the mix, and Rob­bie uses a clever tech­nique to en­sure it’s not mud­died by its own re­verb: “The flute didn’t nat­u­rally cut its way through the mix when I put the re­verb on; it was re­ally cloud­ing the sound. So I’ll split the sig­nal into two chan­nels us­ing the Dry/Wet con­trol on the re­verb, then I’ll sidechain the re­verb-only chan­nel with the dry sig­nal at the source. So, when the flute is play­ing, it’s like a dry flute with a wet tail af­ter. It makes sure the orig­i­nal sound doesn’t get lost, but you still have this re­ally re­verbed feel.”
