    I think in many situations it may be sufficient to use the side chain without a second channel, since the side chain feature of the compressor allows

    1. the channel itself to be the side chain source (“self keyed”) and
    2. to apply a HPF to the side chain signal.

    Therefore, if you enable the side chain filter with HPF at lets say 6kHz, you can let the compressor only react to frequencies over 6kHz. Everything below won’t trigger the compressor. I used this approach lately and it worked out great. The only downside I see is that you are limited to a HPF and can’t choose a specific frequency to trigger the compressor. But in exchange for this drawback you have a much simpler setup. And if you need another compressor for “normal” compression you could then again route the signal to a group and compress there.

    De-Esser, Yes please; It helps a lot to have a built in one especially for Church and amateur user groups.

    last Saturday I missed a de-esser desperately. I had an male singer with significant S’s. At the end I fixed the issue somehow with the channel compressor and the keyfilter. A ducking gate would be in that case the better solution but is also not available on the SQ:-(

    @mfk0815 there is a ducker available.
    Goto the compressor screen, press library and select the ducker mode (is possible even without purchasing the deep plugins).

    What firmware are you running? Ducker wasn’t anywhere in 1.3 release notes (IIRC).

    That’s a major feature request from a ton of people.

    Just checked V1_2 reference guide didn’t have it. V1_3 does. Pg 28 & 30 respectively.

    That’s incredible, how did it not make it into release notes?

    One DEEP plug in I would absolutely pay for on the SQ’s would be the Dyn8 unit from the dLive’s – I use it everywhere in my dLive mixes, I’d definitely see the value of paying for that as a plug in (not sure how it would be implemented in the SQ architecture, given it’s an insert, but definitely something I’d love to see)!
