    Hi there,

    I would love the ability to do channel ducking. I’m sure it could come in handy for others for live events and things, but for me, I’d use it for podcasting. Being able to duck the Bluetooth channel as well would seal the deal!

    I’m wondering if the AMM can be tweaked to do a similar job?
    I use it for bgm in a livestream on my QU, it’s very useful.

    Pretty Please Keith and co. Ducking is a really important tool for our work on live events.

    I’d also like to see ducking added. I actually think it is MORE important to have ducking on a console designed for the small events/situations because it is more likely there won’t be an audio engineer monitoring things all the time.

    For example, I routinely use it at neighborhood events that have a PA set up for background music and announcements to duck the background music a little further when someone starts speaking on the mic.

    I think that’s what the AMM is for. It appears to pull back other channels, and I don’t see any restriction on them being other mic inputs.

    You would just set your talk mic to a higher priority and turn AMM on for all the channels in use (I think).

    I need a ducker, or the option of a sidechain compression.

    Ducking is really important, as we use the CQ a lot for small events with music and moderation so you would not need to have a technician at the place all of the time.

    Id gladly sacrifice all the reverb effects, chorus, delay and flanger effects for a compressor with sidechain for ducking!

    I mean, my guitars have pedals and my synths have inbuilt effects. not sure why I need umpteen dozen reverb/chorus/delay/flanger effects but yet cant have a compressor with sidechain 🙁

    Hi,

    an additional usecase for my CQ20-B is mixing of a live comments/talk (mic) over an audio stream commming from a phone/tablet/pc or the SD card.

    I see two posible aaproaches inside the CQ20-B:

    1. to add the ST_IN / USB / BT / SD channel as inputs to the AMM
    2. a more versitile approach would be to get sidechain in the compressors

    In the time being you can achieve proper ducking with the use of external VST pluging.

    And for the AMM-Workaround – how fast are attack and release. I read in another pdf, that it’s not meant for music :-/

    Plus: the qu16 has a simple ducking-function, is there – after all those wishing fans – something similar planned? It would help me to decide between 1010’s Bluebox (which also isn’t ableto, but cheaper and smaller) and the CQ12T.

    I tried the AMM-possibility on my qu16, but it was everything but on point; furthermore there is the D-classic version installed, not the NOM-version.. Has anyone tried?

    Thx in advance
