Is sidechaining used for other than dynamic tools? Desktop Synthesizers

Is sidechaining used for other than dynamic tools?

Would`nt it be useful with sidechain inputs on other fx like filters, delays and other creative effects to control parameters? You could really mold sounds into echother...


Or have I just not seen them?

The auto filter in Live has a sidechain input which can be used to trigger the filter's envelope. Can get some nice rhythmic effects when you feed it a nice pattern.

Haha, I`ve been thinking about getting into Euro, looks really fun... Been playing with the dark energy at my local shop, and couple that with a doepfer 19" rack so I could expand with some modules. An input module, send (what kind of?) cv from that to f.ex. filter cutoff on the DE?


Wonder why its not more used in the plugin world tough.

S/C filters are not uncommon.

EQ
Noise Gates
Vocoders

I remember seeing this done really easily in Fruityloops and wondering why other DAWs didn't have something similar.
