Sidechaining: Why is it greyed out?

Hi all!  I want to add sidechaining to some tracks that I have arranged. (sorry, this is a bit dated, but I'm still on Live 8).  When I add a compressor, most of the compressor is functional, but the sidechain button and associated knobs are grey-ed out.  Is there a way to add sidechaining to existing midi tracks, or does it have to be configured before recording?

 

Sorry, there is probably a very easy solution to this, maybe something with arrangement vs session ...

 

Thanks in advance!
