VocRider 1.2 VST Freeware.
Windows only 32bit.

Based on the Diy Vocalrider workflow from SOS but instead of 3 auxes it uses only one.
Works with mono and stereo channels.

Functions:
* Bypass.
* Meters on/off.
* Ride enhance knob.
* Output level knob.
* Input, processing, ride and sidechain meters.
* Auto input detector.

Read the included readme for connection workflow.

Latest update VocRider 1.3:
New:
2-bands EQ
DeHarsh processor.
Auto In/sidechain detectors.
Stereo sidechain meters.

Also i have to mention:
The sidechain detector has a special buildin EQ, the low frequencies of a bass sound are unlikely to mask a vocal as much as an electric guitar with lots of energy in the very 1‑5kHz range that's most important to vocal intelligibility, which means that EQ'ing the Expander's detector signal to reduce low frequencies and increase the 1‑5kHz range can help improve the subjective musicality of the automatic level‑riding.

VocRider 1.4 update.

* Bypass.
* Meters on/off.
* Ride enhance knob.
* S.C. input level. (new)
* Output level knob.
* Input, processing, ride and sidechain meters.
* Auto input/sidechain detectors.
* Selectable sidechain source: audio/fixed oscillator. (new)
* 2-bands equalizer.
* Deharsh processor with Stereo/Mid/Side modes.
* Ride automation output. (new)

Bugfix: ducking behaviour.
Note: vocals stays always on their dedault daw's fader level when sidechain signal is low. Upwards riding starts when the sidechain level increases.

Works extremely well in your digital DAW's and live reinforcement mixing, your mikes will allways automatically rides the faders, no worry how much energie/loudness level your music gets, vocals will stay perfect in the mix.

I think it rides the vocal levels, very useful. I did download it but as I use Cubase I cannot do side chaining with VST2s

Hi Keith99, yes you can do sidechain in Cubase with VocRider, read the included readme.txt for instructions.

Is this able to ride the signal without the SC?
I see the oscillator method, but haven't been able to figure it out.
For example, I'd like the signal RMS to stay close to -20 dB, is that possible with this plugin?
It's easy if you know how
