Slim Slow Slider: Side Chain Compressor

Side Chain Compressor

Side Chain Compressor was developed by Slim Slow Slider for VST windows.
apulSoft ported this plugin to OSX and to the AU format.

This is a Side Chain only compressor which requires special routing.
For VST there are two versions, mono (2 input channels/1 output channel) and stereo (4 input channels/2 output channels). Not all vst hosts support the required routing - Cubase Studio for instants does not. The AU version uses the regular AU sidechain mechanism and detects mono vs. stereo processing.

WARNING: There have been reports of very loud noises in Cubase 4 with a beta version of this plugin. The routing has not been not very well tested in general. Please use this with care.
Reports of successes or failures would be very welcome :).
