Adjust send levels of grouped tracks

I've created a problem for myself. I have a number of tracks making up a bass sound. They are all set to 'Sends Only' as they are going to a return track with sidechain compression. I've grouped the tracks that make up the bass sound, but the fader for the group track has no effect on the levels of the tracks within the group. Is there a better way to organise this without remapping my APC40? This would be impractical as I'm scrolling side to side a lot.

    How about putting the sidechain compression on the Group track and then sending it to the master? If you use the return track for send-only signals, that would basically work exactly the same.

    Yeah, I was being a bit dumb. Sent each bass 'To Group' and then set the send levels on the group track. Now my level fader works.

    Thanks!
