Creative Sidechain Compression Effects in Reason

reason Jan 06, 2020

Last week I showed you an ultra-detailed tutorial about all the cool ways that you can trigger sidechain compression in Propellerhead Software’s Reason (affiliate link). Now that you know how to use sidechain compression though, I want to help you think about some creative ways that you can use it to further your sounds.

This guide includes a lot of really cool, unique sidechain compression effects. These techniques should work in most versions of Reason.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Sidechain reverb for a rhythmic pumping effect
  • Create a free dynamic equalizer
  • Duck multiple instruments at once
  • Throw sidechain compression on a delay for other worldly effects

Now without further ado, here’s an in-depth exploration of all the cool things that you can do in Reason with sidechain compression.

Did I miss any? What creative ways do you use sidechain compression in Reason?
