    Gate
    hi everyone! first of all let me say thanks once again to Steve H for sharing their knowledges. I sincerely respect you all for sharing the outpouring of years and years of work on music. and... Steve I love your voice man! It' s meditative - i am serious. anway.. let' s get to the topic today i was fooling around on the net and on focusrite website I ' ve read this: MULTI-MODES ENABLE CREATIVE GATING TECHNIQUES The Gate can operate as a stereo gate and, in different dual mono modes, one signal can be used to trigger the gate of another; ideal for tightening up a bass line, for example. ... well - by reading this i understood i am a totally ignorant about Gating and its full potential... Does anyone can tell me more about this? glad to be here!

    Re: Gate
    Yes, it's cool sidechaining/gating... I love this simple but effective technique: - Setup two tracks. Let's say, it's an audio kick track (Audio 1) you want to act as the trigger for the gate effect and an ES2 synth on a SI (software instrument) track. - Copy the kick track throughout the arrangement. - Insert a Noise Gate on the ES2's track. Set the Sidechain to Audio 1 (kick track). - Hit Play in Logic and adjust the Noise Gate's threshold to determine the level at which the synth is triggered by the kick. Great fun... but yeah.... the videos I linked to highlight some cooler tricks :) Rounik

    Re: Gate
    Yup, rhythmic parts work great. For example a percussion sound like a closed hat would be good because it has a quick attack and release and short sustain... but it all depends on the type of music and gated effect you're after ;-) Let us know how you get on. Rounik
