Setting up a sidechain track in FL for faster sidechain

Hi

I want to set up a mixer channel in FL, so I easily can route synths and other sounds to this channel so they get sidechained. I hope that made sense. I suck at googling, so if someone could provide a video or a short explenation, that would be great!

Edit: I like to use the limiter, but peak controller is good too, even better I think.

theirs mine i use a fruity balance for the kick and either use a ghost kick(seprate kick) or my actual kick with a peak controller on it and set the volume input of the fruity balance to go off the peak controller via the vol knob on the peak section of the peak controller at a 0.8 input value via the internal controller option in the link to controller menu.
The fruity limiter is there also as i like to use that so i can also sidechain off my main snare or clap. Just set it to where your main clap/snare is via the sidechain section on the fruity limiter and put the snare/clap to sidechain to this track and your good to go.

thats it for a ghostkick set up, same scenario for the ghost kick and main kick with the fruity balance just send the balance to the ghost kick not your main kick.

Thank you, but im still having a hard time figuring this out as I am not so experienced. Do you know any videos that explain this? Also, Im using FL 10, so I cant open your examples, but thanks for taking the time, really appreciate it!
