Topic: "Ducking" for microphone? - Page: 1
When you talk in the mic, the music's volume is automatically lowered. This'd be great since I use Virtual DJ for broadcasting. Is this at all possible?
If not, is there a plug-in, or external volume controlling application that does this?

I've seen alot of PA amps with this feature as well...although obviously it depends or what you're using.

I've always hated the "talkover" function on most mixers I've used. With a half hour practice you can have a good feel for when to lower and talk and raise volume down and sound pretty good at it.
Unless You're scared of the mic.
I'm always Surprised at how many DJ's are Terrified of a talkover mic.

"X" can be a number between "-99" and "+99" but obviously for this purpose we keep it in the negative. Shortcut must be held down while speaking.
deck active set_gain -X while_pressed & mic while_pressed
PS. Sorry for the hard drop, I did try (attempt found below) to set it up so that the gain would gradually fade to a specified point and then stop, but to no avail. Should any programmers appreciate my attempt, please do try an attempt yourself then post your script below. It would go a long way to making this feature a reality!
FAILED ATTEMPT: deck active gain -6 ? set_gain -6 : gain -1 while_pressed & mic while_pressed

That being said, a complete "Talk over" function with fading and toggle button (not gate mode) is this:
repeat_stop 'IncreaseGain' & repeat_stop 'DecreaseGain' & repeat_stop 'GainKeeper' & toggle 'TALKOVER' & var_equal 'TALKOVER' 1 ? mic on & repeat_start_instant 'DecreaseGain' 50ms & param_bigger gain 0.15 ? repeat_stop 'DecreaseGain' & repeat_start_instant 'GainKeeper' 5ms & load_pulse ? gain 0.275 : nothing : gain -1 : repeat_stop 'DecreaseGain' & repeat_stop 'GainKeeper' & mic off & repeat_start_instant 'IncreaseGain' 50ms & param_bigger gain 0.5 ? gain +1 : param_smaller 0.5 ? gain 0.5 & repeat_stop 'IncreaseGain' & repeat_stop 'DecreaseGain' : gain 0.5 & repeat_stop 'IncreaseGain' & repeat_stop 'DecreaseGain'
The red part determines the speed of volume reduction. The bigger the number, the slower the reduction gets
The green part determines the low volume threshold. The smaller this number is the lower the volume of the deck gets
The blue part determines the speed of volume restoration. The bigger the number, the slower the restoration gets

Really can't thank you enough but THANK YOU for sharing!

This didn't work for me for some reason, trying to understand what am I missing here? - any help will do...
Under VDJ 8 - settings - Controller Mapping - Keyboard (custom mapping) - I've entered a new action with the script provided here (2 messages before)
with the key "Alt + X" but no ducking is being done while i'm playing music and talking to the the mic.
