FabFilter has announced the update of Pro-G Gate / Expander Plug-In to version 1.0.1. It is a free update for Pro-G users. It has been adding the requested “ducking” style and small improvements and also various bugs were fixed.
FabFilter Pro-G Gate / Expander – Changes in version 1.0.1
# ‘Ducking’ style was added, implementing inverted gate/expander behavior. A typical application of ducking is to automatically lower the level of a musical background track when a voice-over starts, and to bring the level up again when the voice-over stops (in movies and on radio broadcasts). Ducking can also be used to achieve the well-known and very popular ‘pumping’ effect, much used in modern dance music.
# Improved keyboard handling on Windows, fixing the “space key stealing” problem in Studio One and FL Studio.
# Improved mouse handling behavior in Pro Tools when Cmd+Ctrl / Ctrl+Win -clicking a control to show the automation timeline.
# Fixed crash in MOTU Digital Performer with the mono version of Pro-G.
