Has anybody had any success with audio ducking?
It seems that it just turns the volumes of the track down but not back up again unless you split the track when there is no voice over.
When the duck threshold is set to infinity in this screen shot it does like I said, ducks the volume but wont bring it back up

When the threshold is set to a volume, like the second screenshot, it does nothing. I've tried increasing the threshold from its lowest to its highest in small increments but it doesn't seem to do anything.

The reason I don't want to cut the vocal track as its a running commentary over a video. If I cut it every time I need to volume to duck it will take a very long time to go through it all as the average video is between 12-18 minutes long. Even in this post with tutorials from Smart Film School, he appears to encounter the same problem. viewtopic.php?f=25&t=6192
It's not a massive problem for me as I just decrease the volume of the other track down slightly so the vocals are more pronounced but I'd like to experiment with it, if only I could get it working.
