If you put the output of the vocal track to an unused bus (remember to either delete the aux that is created or turn the aux's output off) then use that bus as the sidechain it works as expected.
Of course if you bypass the ducker, you won't hear the vocals, because the sidechain gets mixed with the ducker's channel. This probably has something to do with what you are experiencing. If you set the audio as the sidechain maybe it taps it pre-pan.
Thank you. Not sure why they made it that way, but that certainly did fix it up.
Initially I was confused as to how I could hear my vocal track at all, since I had routed it to an aux bus and then turned off the output. But I guess as you say, when you insert the ducker, it automatically mixes the sidechain.
