Uhm why can't I use the signal follower on tracks to the left of it?
...just kidding. That one seems to get asked in here a lot.
No, my problem is this--it doesn't seem to work with the mixer. Here's what happening, and I'll try not to make this confusing.
I have what we'll call tracks "1" & "2".
So I create a signal follower for track 1 and route it to track 2's mixer, then volume.
Then I try to create a nice ducking effect by setting up the signal follower on track 1 to modulate track 2's mixer's volume.
I set the Dest. min to a value of 0.000dB and the Dest. max to -5.000dB.
aaand nothing happens.
I probably should mention that I just got a new laptop and on the last laptop doing the above worked as you'd expect. But on this new laptop with the same version of Renoise on it it doesn't seem to work. The dotted yellow/white line appears around the track being modulated by the signal follower, but it's having no effect and the slider on track 2's mixer isn't bouncing up and down the way it should be.
