A few years ago DaDa Life released a software plugin called the ‘Sausage Fatner‘. This week another big name in the EDM scene introduced a plugin. No other then Nicky Romero partnered up with the Cableguys and together they developed Kickstart. This plugin is the fastest way to achieve that sidechain compression effect.
Sidechain compression: no top-notch EDM, house or R&B production can do without. Kickstart is the fastest way to get that signature sidechain effect in your own tracks. Nicky Romero and Cableguys got it all laid out for you. Forget complicated compressor routings, simply drop Kickstart on your channels—a big Mix control and hand-crafted modulation curves get you started.
You can use Kickstart in any VST or AU sequencer such as Ableton Live, Logic, Cubase, Fruity Loops, etc.
Sidechain compression is used to rhythmically change the volume of audio channels to provide space and definition. And only then, your kick drum and bass will stand out. Kickstart has a big Mix control, 16 hand-crafted modulation curves, a precise oscilloscope, and can run synced or retriggered via MIDI, with loop and one-shot modes all available.
