      Hi Ted,

      I have a question about the P5 sidechain……

      I’m racking the P5 up and putting the I/O on a patchbay and I’m wondering whether to wire up the sidechain I/O.

      My question is, if there is a jack plugged into the sidechain jack will it only look for an external sidechain signal, making it impossible to use the audio signal for the sidechain? I know there isn’t a sidechain selection switch, so wondered if there is any way of selecting between internal and external other than inserting or removing the jack as/when required.

      If not, would there be a way of you modifying my unit with this feature?

      Many thanks for your time and help

        I don’t really understand the question….. the P5 is my ‘box full of compressors’, where the individual sidechains are not easily accessible. :?

          Hi Ted,

          I think I may have misunderstood the connections….. I (obviously mistakenly) thought that the “insert” point would give access to a sidechain input, to allow for inserting an external sidechain signal.

          I suppose this isn’t possible without modification then?

          Thanks for your time, and apologies for my late reply :)

            Hmmm…. yes, to make this easier I have looked through my docs and have found the circuit diagrams of the ‘box full of compressors’.

            Drop me an email to my ted@tfpro.com address and I will send you the circuits. :)
