Chaining instruments so that their EQ range does not clash

Forgive me for my lack of exact terminology of what I am talking about.

I want to use the function that causes instruments or plugins to be chained to one another in such a way that causes the instruments to not interfere with one another when it comes to dominating the mix or clashing or causing clipping.

This could be phrased like ‘Instrument A has lower priority in the available Dynamic space than instrument B’. Alternatively, ‘If dynamic space is occupied by Instrument A, then Instrument B triggers at much lower volume’ or similar. I know this is a relatively common function in mastering/sound production, but I do not know how to do it in Renoise, or even what it is called exactly.

Does anyone have a comment to point me in the right direction to achieve this in Renoise?

Thank you in advance for any replies.

The Bus Compressor device along with the Sidechain device can be helpful for this.

alternatively, a signal follower ducking a gainer device can work well for this, too
