Hi all,

Is there a way to implement ducking on a delay effect? Is this done with an envelope follower, which is descibed in the modulated filter chapter?

Best regards,

Willem Zwart

Yes, the classic "dynamic delay" is the TC Electronics 2290:

And also yes, you use the envelope detector on the incoming signal, then duck (attenuate) the delayed signal based on the strength of the incoming signal, while allowing the un-delayed signal to pass at full volume. When the input signal drops, the delayed signal swells back up. The only tricky part will be the logic you apply when the signal falls below the threshold, to apply gain to the delayed signal.
