话题: Is there a Talkover feature yet or am I just not paying attention?
PolkamanPRO SubscriberMember since 2016
I wrote a script for a custom talkover button but it doesn't fade in and out (like Sam does...), its an instantaneous drop and raise. I can adjust the percentage of drop, I use 55%, but it sounds so abrupt in a live setting. Does anyone know of a script that will adjust the time to fade in and out as well as the percentage of drop? It seems like the Holy Grail of this software.

Holy grail? Hmm... personally I would not use such a feature, so maybe that's a bit of a stretch :-)

But what is your current script? Maybe it can be improved

This is one that I have used myself:

repeat_start 'fadevolume' 10ms & volume 50% ? repeat_stop 'fadevolume' : volume -1%

and then to return to full volume:

repeat_start 'fadevolume' 10ms & volume 100% ? repeat_stop 'fadevolume' : volume +1%

Nice.

You can make it a "while pressed" like feature by combining them, like:
down ? repeat_start 'fadevolume' 10ms & volume 50% ? repeat_stop 'fadevolume' : volume -1% : repeat_start 'fadevolume' 10ms & volume 100% ? repeat_stop 'fadevolume' : volume +1%

But to make it a general script you may want to store the starting point in a variable, and return to the value, in case some prefer to mix without having the deck faders at 100%

Nothing beats moving the deck fader by hand yourself, as you talk.

No script or automated system is going to know in advance when you're about to talk, how loud you'll be, how long you'll speak for, what the music under you doing at the time (loud, quiet, vocals?)....

Haven't checked back in awhile. Thanks for the suggestions. I will give them a try and let you know.
