MIDI DUCK is a wave shaping, customizable volume LFO plug-in hosted by a buff ass Duck with a glorious Durag.
Not all shapes are created equal!
Express your creativity by exploring the shaping interface canvas at the heart of the Midi Duck.
The MD shaper breaks boundaries and allows you to create your own flavours of ducking, drawing anything from simple curves all the way though to complex envelope shapes that resemble the stars of the Zodiac, the choice is yours!
TIME & VISUALS
Choose different time intervals to control how often your duck curve hits your audio and visualize the effects with the built-in on screen oscilloscope.
Feeling lucky?... No problem!
Roll the dice by clicking on Drucks beak to create a countless number of envelope shapes, all generated completely at random.
The quote "With great power comes great responsibility" does not apply here! Real creatives know that many gems are found at the extremes, so Midi Duck encourages experimentation, extreme settings and makes it easy for you to get there.
THE BIG DIAL
An analog hardware knob placed on an illustrated backdrop is so wrong, but yet so right! Crank up the dial clockwise to increase the effect of your ducking shape. Again, don't hold back, the more the better!
Curve the left Warp slider up for a sonic trip like no other.
A seemingly simple control but don't be fooled, it's powered by multiple pitch modulators working in parallel in the background.
Arc the right slider up for some of that rich gritty saturation and pay homage to the dirty grind of Drucks past. Only experience could produce a sound so textured and thick... Try it and see!
Ambitious sound designers and producers will be blown away by this not so hidden gem, as another level of multi-band control lies waiting behind the scenes.
Click on the Midi Duck logo, or the Inspector glass to reveal advanced mode and unlock a world of even greater sonic possibilities.
Now you can focus your Ducking or Power FX on a specific part of the audio spectrum. Just drag the outer bands in or out to hone in on your desired range.
Perfect for ducking the low end of an instrument or loop while keeping its upper frequencies untouched and vice versa.
Experiment and see!
BAND GAIN SLIDERS
Control the output gain of each of your bands independently by adjusting the LO, MID & HI vertical sliders. You're free to make bold moves with 10db of slider gain in either direction.
Additional Tech Info: All 3 bands are created with carefully designed Linkwitz-Riley crossover filters. This avoids phase cancellation whilst creating a very natural, analog like quality.

Druck is a visionary. Callous with love. Endlessly inventive and casually cruel. Willing to go against grain till it smooths out.
They say he lost every fade he was ever offered before his beard grew infully.
He hasn’t been beaten by a soul. Only draw...after draw... after DRAW.
