If you haven’t spent much time with the Duck delay machine within TimeLine, you should definitely devote some time to exploring the options! Ducking delays can give you a enhanced feel of touch sensitivity when playing. The way it reacts to your playing can inspire new riffs and song ideas.
In this example, I’ve set the Sensitivity to just over half, and the Release Time to 0.35 seconds. This gives a noticeable duck in the delayed signal, but doesn’t overwhelm your dry signal when it comes back in. To make it a bit more subtle, you can dial the Sensitivity down a bit. Take some time to play with the Release Time which can really change the whole feel of the ducked signal.
The image below shows the knob settings and parameters. Dial it up on your TimeLine and try it out.
