Gate will only let audio through when the input level is above a set threshold.
- Threshold - The volume threshold for when the gate will open.
- Tolerance - A hysteresis range requiring the volume to drop a set amount of dB under the threshold before closing.
- Range - The amount to attenuate the signal when the gate is closed.
- Attack - The time it takes to for the gate to fully open when the input volume is over the threshold.
- Hold - The minimum time the gate will stay open.
- Release - The time it takes to for the gate to fully close when the input volume is under the threshold.
- VU Meter - Displays the current input level, the selected threshold & tolerance, and the gate’s current state.
- Sidechain - Indicates if a sidechain input has been connected.
- Flip - When flipped, the gate will act in reverse attenuating the signal when the gate is open.
- Look-ahead - When enabled, a 5ms look-ahead will be used, allowing transients through at the cost of latency.
The Kilohearts Toolbox
Gate is one of the devices in the Kilohearts Toolbox bundle.
The Kilohearts Toolbox devices all do one thing each, and they do it well. The philosophy behind this is to give our customers access to the building blocks of sound design and from there you can combine them into really interesting effects. In fact, many more esoteric RE:s are basically a few of these effects combined.
If you own a few, or all the Kilohearts Toolbox devices be sure to check out Kilohearts Toolbox Refill, a big pack of diverse combinators exploring the possibilities of the toolbox.
Kilohearts aim to provide Reason users with a wide range of audio effects that all utilize a common form language and interaction model. This allows for a great user experience that is really valuable when working with with big projects.
Stack ‘em up!
We have taken a lot of care to make all Kilohearts Toolbox devices as lightweight as possible. This way you can combine many, many effects without taking up too much screen space, or CPU.
