The new version of Neutron seems to do exactly the same, but I dont have that. Am I correct? Or are there similarly priced alternatives
As far as I know Neutron will detect frequency clashes but it won't automatically duck those frequencies - I could be wrong, I barely use it for some reason. Trackspacer is incredibly intuitive and quick to setup, whereas Neutron always felt a bit clunky to me...
Trackspacer really comes into it's own when the material you feed into it is dynamic across the frequency spectrum. For example using it on a synth lead or guitar and feeding a vocal into the sidechain. For something like ducking a bass part with a kick drum, you could easily dial this in with Nova, and with more control and better visual feedback.
