Mixing and ducking
Toraverb’s mixing functions took in a balance (X-Fader) control for the Early and Late reflections, plus knobs for Wet Gain and Dry/ Wet FX mix. Toraverb 2 goes much further.
The Early and Late signals are now governed by their own Gain dials, and can be individually panned from left to right, or adjusted in terms of mid/sides stereo balance. Then there’s the FX Curve knob, which alters the mix curve of the Dry/Wet FX control, from a regular crossfade to both signals outputting 100% at the centre point, with the dry signal attenuating as FX is twisted clockwise, and wet falling away as it’s turned anticlockwise.
Best of all, though, is the Ducking section. Raising the Ducking parameter increases the amount of compression applied to the wet signal whenever the dry signal is present, regardless of Dry/Wet mix, with the Att/Rel knob setting the attack and release timing. Perfect for decluttering overwhelming tails.
