BeatRig SIDEKICK EXTENDED 6 Overview

Add instant side-chain compression to your DAW with the Sidekick Extended 6 Side-Chain Compressor Plug-In Software from BeatRig. Versatile and simple to use, the plug-in is compatible with virtually any DAW title that supports the VST2, AU, and AAX platforms.

Side-chain compression simply allows you to automatically control the volume of one track based on the volume of a different track. The effect is commonly used to send a kick drum to the side-chain input on a bass sound to provide a pumping low-end effect popular in modern dance and pop music production styles. The effect is quite versatile and lends itself to a wide variety of creative applications on instruments, vocals, reverb effects, and more.

In postproduction, side-chain compression allows you to route a voiceover or dialog track to control the level of a music bed or soundtrack—automatically lowering the music for clearer, more intelligible speech. Sidekick is simple to set up and provides intuitive routing controls, while adjustments are available on the Ducking, Attack, and Recovery settings, so you can tailor the sonic results to your needs. Finally, the Saturation slider lets you add some additional fatness with the sound of an overdriven tube effect.

  • Easy routing of control track to destination track
  • Works on DAWs that support AU, VST2, or AAX
  • Adjust Ducking, Attack, and Recovery parameters to customize results
  • Move Ducking setting counterclockwise for inverting effect
  • Saturation slider adds overdriven tube effect
