SideKick – advanced settings

You can find these settings by clicking on the SideKick logo in the interface.

Please use these default settings:

  • turn on, max detected buffer-size
  • turn on, initial compensation
  • turn off, force sync

Depending on the DAW host software you may need to change these settings if you are having problems with the timing of ducking/keying.

Please note you will have to reload all sidekicks for the changes to take full effect.

The 3 way switch for the buffer-size:

  • set to ‘2x max detected buffer-size’ if there seem to be gaps
  • set ‘max detected buffer-size’ as default
  • set ‘no compensation’ to run without delay compensation at all. (not recommended).

initial compensation, should be on by default. if however the ducking/keying seems too late. you can try turning this off.

Force sync, should only be turned on/off if the ducking/keying seems to jitter.
