In defence of the instructor, I probably wouldn't refer to this kind of threshold trigger functionality as "side-chain" either, - since the device doesn't include any side-chain settings or routing options (as opposed to the side-chain filter settings for the gate, de-esser and compressor).

i havent looked at the manual yet, but even the manual doesnt answer the question by what you said, that could still be the whole spectrum or a smaller band.

i am not blaming the instructor either, he is a customer relations guy who knows the console very well and he taught me a lot. the day was well structured and fulfilled its purpose, its just one of the many examples of the confusion.
the fact that there is no control over the sidechain signal does not mean it is not a sidechain signal, and it is still important to know what frequencies are triggering the EQ.

I heard that the new Assassin Creed has a lot of sidechains.

I think you mean satchels, not sidechains. Gotta carry all dat loot.

Sidechaining is probably one of the most fun features. Especially when making whit like glitch or weird soundscapes.

TBH I feel your pain Parricide as I use the control functions in fruity loops to generate all sorts of "control voltage" from all sorts of audio. But I don't want to end up sidechained to that tree with you

Re: petition for people to start using the term "sidechain" correctly

didn't think of sidechianing using an eq instead of a compressor, thanks dude, just goes to show that without thought most would just blindly follow, i sidechain shit because deadmau5 and a bunch of tech house producers do it to make dat kick drum audible but mostly used a compressor, now that someone said hey use an eq it will probably help my mixes a lot more, tbh i thought the pettition was tedious but i was wrong and it just shows that there are more possibilities. honestly the take away from your post was "oly hsit i can use an eq to sidehchain my sidechain to another sidechain" combine that with splitting frequency bands and automation/envelope controllers your post just opens the door for much sound design fuckery you have no idea

a sidechain signal can be used to control almost anything (almost because im sure there is an exception that i havent thought of). you dont have to use the dynamic content of the SC signal either.
finding pre-made effects that utilize a SC signal in weird ways is hard though, but if youre into modular systems its easy to set up. there are already lots of dynamic EQs out there though so you should definitely try some out. my favourite atm is MDynamicEQ, but that could just be because i love melda.
