Get instant sidechain pumping, simple kick and bass mixing, and many more creative effects with Duck.

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. You can set Duck's envelope to loop continuously to the beat, or use trigger sources: internal audio level, external audio level, or MIDI.

Enable split band mode to adjust your curve's depth for separate low and high frequency controls – perfect for ducking a bassline whenever a kick hits, while leaving its higher frequencies intact.

Why You Need Duck:

  • Instant sidechain pumping as soon as you load the plugin.
  • Cleaner, louder and more exciting mixes.
  • Choose from 8 quick preset curves or 72 creative and useful Duck patches.
  • Draw your own curves and rhythms to use now, or save them later.
  • Set the overall pump, or apply to low and high bands with adjustable crossover.
  • Run Duck in Repeat mode, or trigger with sidechained audio or MIDI signals.
  • Smoothing control to remove clicks: including super-accurate pre-smoothing algorithm when in LFO mode.
  • Run on individual tracks, groups or your master bus for different pump effects.
  • NEW: Lookahead control to fine-tune ducking with transient sources.
  • NEW: Group multiple Ducks in one of four groups for control over all curve shapes.
