Is there a way to autoreduce background music when there is dialogue?

Let's say I have dialogue on one track and BGM on another. Is there a function that can reduce the BGM track when it detects a level of signal in the dialogue track?

    Auto reducing volume of one track based on the volume level of a second track is called "Auto Duck(ing)," or "Audio Duck(ing)." Knowing these terms will help you find the function in other software. "Duck" as in "ducking down" to dodge or get low, not the bird.

    Hitfilm doesn't have any ducking features.

    Audacity is a free, cross platform audio editor that has ducking.
