In this Pro Tools video tutorial Pro Tools Expert team member Dan Cooper shows you how to set up reverb and delay ducking in Pro Tools. This is a very powerful production and mix technique that helps to focus instruments in a song while retaining reverb tails and delay feedback between notes and passages.
Ducking Found In Third Party Reverb & Delay Plug-ins
Many modern third-party reverb and delay plug-ins include this process - learn how to achieve reverb and delay ducking in Pro Tools without any extra software.
Reverbs and delays have a tendency to muddy up a mix. Ducking attenuates ambiences through instrument passages but preserves ambient impact when most needed between notes.
The benefits of understanding this technique will enable you to:
- Build powerful ambient lifts between notes.
- Carve out ambient space in your mixes.
- Use any reverb or delay plug-ins - not just third party plug-ins that include the ducking feature.
