good point. :P
one can't reall argue about music, since it's something very personal, and arguing about techniques is the most sensless thing one can probably do. :)

I think it's not senseless to argue about techniques when someone gives senseless advice. :P

Don't know if the question still needs to be answered, but sidechaining in OMPT should be possible using TwistedLemon SideKick. Dead easy if you ask me, like this:
Bass->Sidekick (first instance)
BD->Sidekick (second instance)
Just play with parameters of these 2 sidekicks or RTFM :D

[EDIT] Dayum! Just looked at their site and now it's updated and payware. How in the hell I've got that old free version, I don't know.

The best sidechain compressor emulation I could find so far that works inside modplug is the one that seventhson suggested (KlangLabs MicroGate). All you have to do is duplicating the "source channel" (i.e. the channel that should duck the other signal), but assign it to an instrument that has no sound by itself, but it has to be assigned to the VST on a MIDI channel (see instrument tab). works like a charm <3

Sidechaning can add quite a lot to the clearness of the mix - when several instruments (f.e. bass instruments) are fighting for the same frequency, it's better to disable one of them when the other is playing. so far, so good, but it's also applied to other frequencies and more heavily than needed in the "french house" productions, which makes them really pumping - which is a whole different story again. however, if you just sidechain a bass and a bass drum, you won't even notice that the bass fades away!
