    Hello there, I'd like to know how I I can set up a compressor on my master buss to only duck when the snare and kick play. Is it possible to do this kind of routing? I heard that doing that on the master track itself isn't possible, so I thought about creating a folder track with all the instrument tracks inside and using it as a fake master buss. Would it be possible this way?

    Really unfortunate typo in the title there...
    You could try that, but why not try applying the compressor later on when you've mixed the whole song and rendered it already, since you're trying to compress the master anyway?

    You can do this. Just create additional sends from the kick and snare to the fake master bus, adding channels 3/4. Have the compressor on the fake master bus listen to the auxiliary channels.

    I wouldn't do this on a master buss, this is the whole point we made track channels and such flexible routing in REAPER in the first place, so that you could do specifically this, in fact the kick/snare sidechain was the subject of one of my first few REAPER videos before beta 1, if those ancient crappy videos are still around
