    Logic 202, noise gate question
    I was just watching the Logic 202 video, number 3 about the noise gate. Steve H is tanking about hysteresis, which creates a threshold margin. The bit I don't understand is where he says '(the gate) won't close down until it reaches the hysteresis setting, which is below the threshold'. Though in the video, the threshold is set to -15db and the hysteresis is set to -5db. Isn't -5db above the threshold? Or is it below because were working with negative numbers. Cheers

    Hi Juno I think Steve means the hysteresis setting (-5db) is added below the threshold setting (of -15db), meaning the gate won't close until the sound drops below -20db. - this is what he means by 'under the threshold' So when a sound hits -15db the gate opens, and it stays open until the sound goes back down to under -20db. I haven't tried it though, but thats how I understand it, hope that helps!
