Default linking either dynamics or plugins across channels

Just a quick question that I haven't been able to address properly with any digital console yet, but maybe its been solved with the Venue: if I want to link (or slave) a noise gate across 2 channels like you would in a situation with 2 kick mics, how do you acheive this without making the channels stereo? Does the Key function do this? How do I set it up if so? If it can be done, can it be done with plug ins as well?

Thanks for any suggestions - its driving me nuts and have really become used to having the inside kick mic trigger both gates.

Default Re: linking either dynamics or plugins across channels


This can be done using either the built-in channel gate or a plug-in that supports a sidechain (key) input. Simply select the inside kick mic channel as the key source on the outside kick channel's gate.

For the built-in gate first select the Exp/Gate section and look for the KEY SOURCE field under the E/G Sidechain section (right side of software screen).

Similarly, for a plug-in select sidechain input using the Key source pulldown at the top of the plug-ins screen, when the gate plug-in in selected. You'll need to be in console CONFIG mode in order to change the sidechain to/from the default "None" setting.
