Someone more knowledgable than I could correct me if I am wrong but that doesn't seem the place to use compressors in series
You can for sure use serial compression for other applications tho for a more subtle effect but I think in the case of getting a side chain style pump going it's the opposite of what you want!
It seems to be working for me, the reason I do that is to get a ton of gain reduction for a tiny amount of signal that goes over the threshold
The reason I feel the need to do this is because I really don't trust ableton's native equipment to a fairly good job in obtaining the sound I am searching for
And I was just thinking that some one/ company would design a better compressor that handles ducking somewhat better
