In part three of the Dubspot series on Sidechain Compression in Ableton, Instructor Steve Nalepa conludes by looking at two other important audio effects in the Compressor-Sidechain in Ableton Live: the Auto-Filter and Gain.

Steve starts by applying the auto-filter on the synths without any sidechaining. He turns on the Sidechain-Compressor which amplifies the filter in an extreme manner. Then he further demonstrates how you can you sidechain and gate settings to create a punchy kick, and encourages you to try it yourself.
