Get essential sidechain pumping, trance gating, tremolo, and many more creative effects with Duck.

Ducking, AKA sidechain compression, is one of the defining effects of modern music. From classic house to modern EDM, tracks by Daft Punk, Noisia and Eric Prydz ooze that pumping, ducking effect. Whether you're producing pumping house or broken beats, Duck delivers this in seconds, as well as trance gating, tremolo, and more.

Duck's draw-your-own curve window makes it easy to design a custom volume shape that repeats at a speed and depth of your choice, or use one of 72 presets to find new and inspiring effects. For more control, enable split band mode and adjust your curve's depth for separate low and high frequency controls. And Duck can be triggered with audio from a sidechain input or by MIDI notes, making it easier than ever for hip-hop and bass music producers.

Why You Need Duck
