    I know Rainger effects used to offer one, but anyone else know of a pedal that can do side chain compression?

    The empress comp does it. Not sure about how well though as I've never played it.

    I just noticed that the FEA models do too. There is a couple options...

    Hot dang! that FEA is looking' tasty, 3 band EQ on the sidechain is a great idea!

    The FEA Opti-FET is one of the best choices since you don't have to add an EQ pedal and the patch cables, it's built in. But you CAN add an external EQ if you want, as well.

    Along with the Empress, the Viva Analog Envelope Lock has a jack for external sidechain processing. I will be reviewing that pedal probably a month or two from now.

    The Taurus and Daring pedals have side-chain processing also, but only for their own internal filters, not for an external EQ.

    Thank ya'll! I'm pretty certain that the FEA is going to be the one on the radar, I might be waiting for a bit, but it seems like the perfect tool for what I want.
