Lives for gear
Yeah, it becomes one of those nice to have "me too" things in the software world. Users are generally lazy (not a judgment - letting me be lazy is good), so once developers start building nice little workflow things like built-in ducking, users start to appreciate it. Over time, a bit of an expectation can form as the features become standard in more and more products. So I get it, I really do. I mean, you could make a delay with no mix knob and just say, "well, use it on a send" but at some point it became a standard feature. Ducking, at least in the plugin world, is at that phase where more and more commercial delays are including it, so it's kind of at a "near-standard" level. Plus, the commercial delay market is quite saturated, so not having it can be seen by some as a negative differentiator.

So like I said, I get the request, but it's not a deal-breaker for me by any means. Not on a delay that sounds this good.
