Welcome back to the i-Jingle PRO user manual. The i-Jingle PRO: Ducking chapter will cover this features in great detail, allowing the use of it, effortlessly.
Ducking – is an effect that reduces the volume of a track by the playing of another one. It is a form of compression. This feature is used for transitions between songs, one song ducking under the secondly selected song.
In the advanced settings section, when tapping on the ducking icon, three columns will open up.
- First column displays 10 active sound ducking presets.
- The second column is the second ducking preset (10) that can be modified in the third column.
- The third column contains the ducking modification settings:
- Ducking volume – it allows control of the volume over the ducked track. It tempers with the amount of drop in volume.
- Fade down time – you can modify how fast the volume of the already playing jingle will drop when a ducking enabled jingle is started. Ratio varies between 0 and 2 seconds. If the value is set at 0, the decrease of volume is instant, while at 2, the drop is progressive.
- Fade up time – is the reverse of the fade down time, meaning the speed of the ducked jingle will go back up to the original setting after the ducking enabled jingle has stopped playing.
- Exit position – The original song starts to fade back, relative to the end of the track playing above it.(eg. If we have -2, it means that 2 seconds before the overlaying track ends, the original one will start to fade back up.
- Ignore Global Transition Settings – ducking is only able to function if this function is on, or the transitions section on the main screen has “none” active, otherwise two tracks cannot be played simultaneously.
