Which VST do you use for GATE?

Recommended Posts

Not familiar with it I'm afraid. All free vst's I see around don't seem to offer x64 binaries. Does Sonar come with a gate that can be sidechained to audio by any chance?

Yes indeed. That's what I use now.

But I still think it would be so much easier to do it with a midi sent directly to the gate and not making up a ghost synth just so it will gate.

Aye I know, it's a bit of a pain. I normally use ableton's simpler with some sharp sound loaded to trigger the gate as it seems to be a bit easier on resources, but it ain't a particularly tidy solution. Hope you find one.

I dont use "real" Gates. :D (only if its too high to jump over)

No, I use the Cut-Tool and Crossfades for "technical Gate".

To produce the "trance-gate" as an effect on a synth, i prefer using

LFO's which modulate the volume or the cutoff.

 

I own Omnisphere and I must say I love it! It has a very cool

Envelope Section with four Mod-Envelopes. You can draw in some

nice rhythms which will modulate anything you like.

 

When the sound is already bounced to audio... there is the "BigSeq"-VST

(by Audio Damage I think) which is a sequencer/gate to chop the sound

afterwards. Its free but... its gone! I can't find it on their website... -.-

 

But there must be something similar...

Yes! - why is such a gate not just standard issue in all DAWs...?

 

I wrote my own AU for this a while back. Still use it, but it's AU only, ugly as *u**! If you think you can use it, you're more than welcome - but Sonar is VST, ya?

Love Philter and CamelSpace.

There is a plugin which I came across recently which is pretty awesome for a bit more crazy filter gating and more: http://dmitrysches.com/tantra

 

I just adore CamelSpace and Tantra. Tantra is used by many artists specialy in psy/prog scene... but its very hard for CPU and RAM.

cableguys' volume shaper might be worth a look if tantra is too demanding. it doesn't have an fx section like that, but is a versatile gate effect nonetheless.
