    Hey guys, I was just wondering if trap producers also use sidechain compression?
    for the lead > 808

    If it needs it... I do not implement something unless it needs it, thats like just putting a compressor on something just because you can.

    Actually sounds like a good idea. But like the other guy said, only if it needs it.

    Taking into consideration that I don't produce trap, but I know that the kick used in trap music is very "bassy", I think the best option is to use sidechain with the kick and sub, so they don't clash on the lower end of the frequency spectrum. I'd also see if it's necessary to use it between the kick and bass, and snare/bass/pads/leads. sidechain can be used for both cleaning up the mix and for creative reasons as well.
