  • Sound track goes softer as narrator speaks

    The rubber banding involved to duck the main sound track to cope with a voice over is tedious so I look for other methods.

    Okay, I found free software claimed to work with apps that accept VST plugins. Now I understand Edius is broken for VST plugins but I still want to try it.

    What I am doing first is to use it in Adobe Audition because I found some info on how to set it up in that app and it works just great, but I don't want to export my audio and voice over tracks from Edius to Audition all the time so I am trying to get it to work in Edius,

    The plugin is called SideKick V3. It makes a much better smoother job than I can manage with the rubber banding, sounds very professional.

    Anyone feel like trying it out and help get it working?

    Hi Claire,

    Why not use the Audio Mixer? You just drag the slider up/down to duck the audio as it plays...

      Oops, I have not been using the mixer since having problems with and being informed it is broken, is it safe to use now?

        While I think that issue was fixed, it shouldn't affect what you're doing since Track adjustments are global and it sounds like you want to duck/raise certain sections.

        Switch the track into Write mode in the Audio Mixer, duck/raise, then if you need to make adjustments, use Touch mode to make fine (relative) adjustments, or if you want to overwrite points from a certain point forward, go into Latch mode and once you make a change it'll overwrite the remainder.

          Brandon, thanks... yes I do know how to use the mixer in "touch" mode and I liked it until my problems with the track command forgetting it's settings made me think I perhaps I better not use it at all.

          However please understand that with SideKick 3 there is literally no work to do, it's all automatic, you don't need to manually play through your whole timeline swinging those mixer levers. No matter how long the timeline SideKick will do it's magic immediately. Would love you guys to fix Edius to work with it, after all it is a VST plugin.

          Okay, well I will probably start using the mixer again for small jobs and do the longer stuff with SideKick in Audition.
