In this premium video tutorial, Pro Tools Expert team member Julian Rodgers explains the subtle difference between side chained compression and side chained ducking, and then demonstrates how to set up Avid Channel Strip as a ducker.
Negative Ratios And Compression Depth
Using example transfer curves Julian explains the difference between compression, limiting downward compression with negative ratios, the role of compression depth controls and ducking.
In a side-chained application the difference between compression and ducking isn't very significant and it is probably because duckers are rarely used not in a side-chained application that the difference is often overlooked. Understand this difference by watching this video.
