    I’m using my SQ-5 for a bit of broadcasting; I have a number of mic sources and a number of music sources. I am feeding all mics to a “vox” aux and use that aux to feed the compressor on the music sources, for ducking. However, the compressor uses the pre-fader output of the vox bus as side-chain whereas in my opinion it should use the post-fader (or at least post-mute) output of the aux so I can quickly disable ducking. Right now I either have to switch off all microphones or change their routing to the vox bus to disable ducking.

    Can that be changed or at least made configurable?

    Hi, similar issue here. Any solution? Is there an available option to choose between pre or post fader side chain? I understand the benefits of having pre fader side chain on the music field, but thats not really convenient for broadcasting purposes, at least not to me right now.
