I developed a rack that I frequently use to quickly split the frequencies of any signal into 3 bands for instant multiband processing. You can use this, for example, to sidechain compress ONLY the sub frequencies of a synth or bass sound, while leaving all of it's mid and high harmonic content in tact! You could also possibly add "stereoizing" effects, like chorus or reverb, only to the high and mid bands of a particular sound, while keeping sub frequencies dry in the mix.

In order to use this Audio Effect Rack, simply drop effects on to the respective chains (high, mid, and low) to process only that band (or bands) of frequencies. You can also use the Macros to adjust the crossover frequencies between the Mid & High bands AND the Mid & Low bands. Each band is isolated using a multiband dynamics device in each chain. just make sure to drop any new effects into a chain AFTER the multiband dynamics device! Feel free to experiment and get creative with your production and sound design!
