Choose sidechain by clicking track

So, when choosing a side chain input you have to go through sometimes very long successive menus to select where you want your sound to come from - wouldn’t it be cool to use a similar way of choosing side chain source as is used with modulation - namely by clicking on the track or device in the UI?


I’ve sent them feature request about this before, basically a way to drag’n’drop source to the dropdown box of source selection of any type.

Yup, I also came up with this exact idea, we just need a color picker, but for audio sources.
However, it is simpler to say that than implement it as sidechain channel can point out to different sources - Pre/Post mixer for tracks, specific device output (eg. nested inside FX chains). The same goes for selecting MIDI sidechain source.

Something like this would definitely speedup workflow with selecting sidechain sources.


a modifier key while holding cursor can help with alternating between PRE and POST target, with hint on bottom bar.

@LXIF, Can you make a draft feature request out of this? It would be great to push it further.
