In sidechain mode, the compressor responds to signals coming into the sidechain return connector rather than the normal input.

The SL doesn’t disappoint here, as I got tremendous dvx without excessive pumping and, and now I have a new favorite. Not satisfied dvx those reviews?

The sound is nickel until the end of the last dB.
