We are all familiar with the concept of sidechain processing: muting the amplitude of one audio signal while playing another.
This studio technique is at the heart of modern dance music and creates an energetic rhythm that makes your heart beat and
your legs move.
Dodge Pro takes this simple concept and elevates it into the stratosphere, offering not only sidechain muting features, but also rhythmic motifs, gated beats and special effects.
Choose from a variety of presets or draw your own amplitude shapes with point-and-drag nodes, surgical drawing tools and 3 independent frequency bands.
Assign up to 12 scenes via MIDI and customize them to your liking using multiple types of curves and note divisions.
Dodge Pro is the flexible and creative tool you’ve been looking for to take control of sidechain shapes and make volume automation as easy (or as complex) as you want.
With the many presets included, it’s easy to find the perfect starting point for your own volume shaping feats. There are dedicated global presets for sidechain muting, trance gates, arps and special FX. These are useful and broad settings that you can customize to your liking. Each of the three bands of EQ and master volume automation has simple solutions for quick access to the most common shapes with a single tap, providing quick access to basic muting, gating and rhythm shapes.
MIDI scenes :
-Program up to 12 completely different MIDI scenes and switch them on the fly with MIDI triggers of your choice. This makes Dodge Pro an indispensable all-in-one solution for automating volume shaping, allowing you to switch scenes across all your tracks to add variety to your sound. This plugin is also an inspiring tool for live performances with scene switching via an external controller.
Advanced line editor :
-Simply click on an automation line to add a node, then drag it to define the shape and curve. Complex curve shapes can be easily selected, including various types of single and double curves, pulse, wave, saw and step automation. Quickly copy/paste lines and scenes and select common transformations with shortcut buttons. For an extra layer of programming, each main automation line has a second layer that can be drawn independently and they stack together to create more complex shapes for really creative effects.
Independent and adjustable 3-way automation :
-While most volume shaping plugins process the entire signal, Dodge Pro can split the sound into 3 frequency bands and apply volume shaping automation to each band. Simply drag and drop the multi-colored band graph in the top right corner of the interface to define low, mid, and high frequency intersection points. Then draw automation lines for three bands, each of which can have completely independent volume, shape, sync, length, and mix settings. Do you want to pump only low frequencies, apply a mid-range trance gate, or add a high-frequency rhythmic effect? All these settings are quickly and easily done with Dodge Pro…
-Choose to randomly automate the volume of an entire scene or a single band to create ‘muted’ and ‘evasive’ effects that really go beyond the circuit.
Visual Feedback :
– The processed audio can be seen as a waveform in the center of the interface, either over the entire frequency or divided into 3 bands. Live muting is also displayed using mini-meters. Other visual feedback options include a scalable interface and left/right monitoring.
Bypass and master mix :
The bypass control is smoothed to be as free of clicks and spikes as possible for unhindered A/B testing. Choose to mix the bypassed signal with the original dry sound using the central Master Mix ratio control, allowing you to lower the volume for more subtle effects.
