Boss GT-8 & Boss GT-10 Ducking Reverb

Ducking Reverb, what's that?

A ducker is the opposite of a gate. That means that the signal will get louder when the control signal is getting quieter. Whereas a gate will mute the signal when the control signal is getting quieter.

Therefore a ducking reverb creates reverb when the signal (your guitar) is getting quieter. It's better sounding because there's no reverb while playing rhythm.

Programming the variable assigns

We use one of the variable assigns of the Boss GT-8 and choose:

  • Target RV: Effects Level
  • Target Min: 25 (this is the max. reverb level)
  • Target Max: 0 (as long as we play there will be no reverb)
  • Source: INPUT LEVEL
  • Source Mode: Normal (GT-8) / Moment (GT-10)
  • Source Act.Range Lo: 126
  • Source Act.Range Hi: 127

Then step forward in the variable assigns list to the last one and set "ASSIGN INPUT Sens" to an approriate value, so that the reverb switches on when playing softly.


The Target is the reverb (what we want to control). And the source (INPUT LEVEL) tells the Boss GT how we want to control the target. When source is max. (you play loud) then target is set to max (reverb level 0). And when playing softly (source close to min.) target is set to min.(the desired reverb level).
