I wanna create a special type of delay called duck delay with a custom assigned volume automation and I need your help.
If you don’t know what a duck delay is then here is a good example in this track:
Time: 1m 45s
A duck delay ducks the wet signal for as long as the dry signal is playing in accordance to its volume.
In the track above you can hear that only the last bit of the dialogue is delayed, not the whole sample.
Now some of you will say that there are special delay plugins on the market that have this feature. That’s correct and I have used some of these plugins but I don’t always like the way they duck the signal.
This is why I wanna create my own duck delay in Renoise using automation on the ‘Send’ parameter of the Delay dsp. However, I want the automation to happen in the instrument itself where it automatically resets with every key stroke so I can play the sample from everywhere in the pattern editor. I know it’s possible to do this with LFO and Key Tracker device but I fail to program this particular type of automation.
Does anyone know what I mean and can help out?
