> Fred Jan, are you the author of Freeverb?
No, it was created by "Jezar" in 2000 and ported by Olaf Mattes to
Max/MSP and Pd. I only created a deken package and fixed a small issue
on the way.

As freeverb~ also uses messages to set the 'wetness', abrupt changes as
with messages will be audiable too. It is conceivable to create an
object that uses a signal to set the most important controls, but I am
not sure it would be worth the trouble. Not to mention it could take
lots of inlets. The [line~] based approach is probably just as good.
A proper ducking object is something that is lacking from Pd. To make it
working just right is probably more tricky than one would guess at first
