ChainDrive Applications

Multiband compression

With a ChainDrive you can split the signal to feed multiple dynamic processors for multi-band compression and have different frequencies cause compression to occur depending on the program material.

Feeding multiple effects

Add character spice and effects to any track by sending it into the ChainDrive and then have it feed various effects processors simultaneously. Use Shuttle modules and the Workhorse for return paths and mix each stem as needed.

Feeding amps and pedals

Use the ChainDrive as a guitar distro to feed various guitar amps and effects simultaneously. Add mics and then mix to create the tastiest audio soup ever!
