Quote A. AuCr:
Multiply is essentially ring-modulation; isn't it? That's not an option I'd normally choose...
Compressor side chains are like an opacity control, and whatever is the sidechain key is the 'front' layer (assuming it's audible).
Just to add to this line of thought, I reckon what you're after is a vocoder.
... which I suppose is a bit like masking, or something?
I think the problem is, you need to figure out what the different possible ways are for two sounds to interact.
1. Balancing their levels against one another
2. Using one to modulate the level of the other (using e.g. a side-chained compressor/gate/expander)
3. Using one to modulate the tone of the other (using e.g. a vocoder)
What else is there? I don't mean that as a rhetorical question, I'm genuinely interested!
