How do I set up external sidechain in Sonar 7?

1. Create a “TrackPlug 5 ExtSC” instance (from the vstplugins menu) on an audio track.
2. On another audio track that will supply the sidechain signal, change the output destination to “TrackPlug_5_ExtSC”, or insert a send to the same destination. If you use the send method, enable the send and set the appropriate send level.
3. Enable one of the dynamics modules in TrackPlug (Gate, Comp1, or Comp2), and select one of the “Ex …” sidechain options. You can click on the “Mon” button to hear and verify that the sidechain is set up properly.
