Hello GP community,
I’m looking into switching over to GP for the GUI and predictive loading features that I can use with my newish but… slightly lacking in RAM… laptop. Especially for a backup system since I’m primarily a live player.
My question: Can you side chain in Gig Performer?
I’ve looked through the youtube vids, forum posts, etc and I just CAN’T find anything about this. I’d love to be able to throw a side chain from my 808 claps (programmed from my midi pedal board) into one of my Bus Compressors and side chain my synth internally… without having to rely on a click track… or a drummer playing on time… or an LFO inside one of my synths. It’d also be a nice way for me to balance out my own parts internally before I send them to the FOH engineers – (I can’t hear your clap, turn your pads down… now your pads are too quiet! Why isn’t your synth bass coming through… ya da ya da).
I like the idea of Gig Performer 2. The predictive loading is very reminiscent of my Muse Receptors (and nice on a smaller system like my current laptop). The user defined GUI – I saw I can make my own rack-level, visible meters!? Not to hijack my own thread, but speaking of…
Is there a way to embed the actual gauges from the plug into the rack? (like seeing PSP’s metering on the rack).
In summation –
- can I side-chain
- can I see parts of the plug in a rack? Or is it all widget based at the rack level?
