sideGATE : lookahead flexigate with virtual sidechain input
Mono || Stereo || Dual Mono || ‘just-in-time’ mode
Voice Production : Use sideGATE as a lookahead noise-gate when for example, you have a presenter speaking against background noise. Normal gating would result in a bump in background noise as the presenter speaks and the gate opens, but with sideGATE’s lookahead feature, the background noise can be gently faded in before the presenter speaks creating a smoother, less objectionable sound. Music Production : When the sidechain is higher than the threshhold, the channel is audible, when lower, gated – just the sort of functionality needed to gate a reverb according to the level of a snare drum, a synth according to a hi-hat, a bass according to a bass drum and so on. sideGATE can also be used to alter the attack of a sound (soften a solo electric guitar making it feel like a lap steel) and its panned outputs can be used to create a situation where the position of a sound in the stereo field is switched according to its volume.
