Default ANY comp/gate with duck feature?

I'm running PT10, HDX, mac mini. I've just installed the UA Octo ultimate as well. Does anyone know of a comp/gate/limiter plug in with a "duck" feature?
....and don't say Drawmer......I can't use it now. Blows my mind I can't find this simple option......thanks, all!

Drawmer would have been your best bet. I myself am still hoping Avid will get it to PT11... :P

WaveRider works well, but the 64 bit AAX isn't yet here. It will be shortly, though.

So you're looking to "duck" the audio on one track keyed by the audio on another track?

Avid Dyn3 Compressor, Avid Channelstrip, Focusrite ff D3 all do this..
  • On the track you want to use as the "key" or "trigger", setup a bus send to "Bus 1" and set the send level to 0dB .
  • Open one of the plugins listed above on the track containing the audio you want to duck and set the "Key Input" (the picture of a key in the plugin header - how ingenious) to "Bus 1".
  • Then click on the "key" button (next to "Sidechain" on Dyn 3 Compressor) and set ratio and threshold to taste.
