Afraid I swing the other way, Guitar Rig not Amplitube user I can get the effect in GR (envelope & volume pedal) but was looking for a Reaper 'native' solution for when I'm dabbling on my tablet (not really up to running GR)

The classic effect is just a threshold and attack which is why it's often emulated with a noise gate (if you have a noise gate with a long enough attack, most are too short). Though I've wondered if making the effect more responsive would be an improvement; hard picking comes through as normal whereas softer strumming triggers the effect. It probably is simple but beyond me.

But i guess it could be done simply by using JS:volume_pan with audio triggered scale inverted parameter modulation.
Not sure how you'd do that, you mean using Reapers ability to modulate one parameter from an audio source?

I think that's it basically, maybe just an attack stage needed to swell the audio in. It can be left to decay on it's own, just reset the trigger when the audio goes below the threshold again.

Thanks all.
