    Trying to figure out how I can duck music on ST1 input, using two mics is that possible with the QU-16 mixer.

    thanks

    read the manual
    a quick search in the PDF will lead you too the ducking page

    Thanks I have read it a a bunch of times. I assume I’m not understang the gang mode. I’ll mess around and see if i can figure it out.

    Gang mode is having the trigger source control the ducking of levels in more than one channel.

    You want to do the opposite, have two input channels duck a signal play back channel.

    Do you have the channel insert selector set to ducker.

    I’m afraid you have to use an aux as the trigger source if possible

    I guess I could hook the mics up to another mixer, then route 2 auxs sends from mixer 1 to the QU-16 and then use that channel as the trigger. I’ll try that.

    thanks everyone.

    Like Steffen suggested select an open mix to be the trigger source and then bring up those two mic channels in the selected mix for the trigger. I would go post fade for that mix.
