Sidechain com­pres­sion

15.30 As is in­evitable in any mod­ern dance mu­sic pro­duc­tion, sidechain­ing plays a part in the sound of

Mat­ing Call – although not as much as you might ex­pect. Daniël ex­plains: “We used a sidechain with the orig­i­nal kick, just to give some room when the bass is play­ing. I don’t think we put it on ev­ery­thing.

“We just make one aux chan­nel with a com­pres­sor on it, and then route ev­ery­thing we like to go to to the sidechain. Ev­ery now and then, we turn it off, be­cause in the breaks we don’t want to hear the pump­ing sidechain­ing sound.”
