The gate is one of the most important weapons in an audio engineer’s arsenal. Used tactically, it can eliminate or reduce unwanted bleed or background noise from recorded source material. Used creatively, its applications are virtually limitless. Previously, Slate users have had to call upon gates from directly within their DAW or third-party plugins of choice. But those days are history…
Introducing two new gate modules: Gate: Classic and Gate: Drums. You can now access nearly infinite gating options without ever having to leave your Virtual Mix Rack workflow!
Gate: Classic is a traditional, straightforward gate that is highly efficient in removing background noise from guitars, vocals, and other acoustically-recorded source material.
Gate: Drums is a highly-sophisticated drum application. It combines a gate based on transient detection with smart dynamic filtering so you can achieve far cleaner drum tracks than with a conventional gate.
Gates Bundle Features
Classic: standard detection based on the signal amplitude only. Input signal can be filtered with the highpass & lowpass filters.
Vocal: introduces internal filtering that better detects a vocalist’s natural breathing. They’ve added unique timing circuit to smooth the opening and closing of the gate.
Transient Detection: The first step of the workflow – adjusting the detection to catch only the desired transients.
Gate: The second step of the workflow – adjusting the floor and timing of the gate.
Debleed: The final step of the workflow. Debleed filters the tail when a transient is caught.
Detection Filters: Filter the signal before detection, so the gate only reacts to certain frequencies.
Transient Detection: Controls the ability of the gate to detect more or less transient.
Detection Threshold: By excluding low levels, you can focus on a specific amplitude range and have insanely precise transient detection!
Debleed: Debleed On/Off enables dynamic filters.
Release: Control the speed of filter activation once a transient has been detected.
