DB Audioware Sidechain Gate v1.1.0 MAC OSX-Kleen
Sidechain Gate lets you perform clever mixing techniques, by using a source track to gate a destination track. For example, you can use a complex hi-hat pattern in one track to rhythmically gate a synth pad in another track. Or simplify a busy bass guitar by gating it from a kick drum track (so the bass guitar is only heard when the kick drum sounds).

Sidechain Gate also performs brilliantly as a conventional insert effect. The EQ and Shape controls allow you to intelligently gate problem recordings. Say you want to clean up a noisy recording of a snare drum, which has some bleed-through from a crash cymbal. Simply use the Hi Cut control to filter out the higher frequencies, and then the gate will only open when the snare is hit.

DB Audioware Sidechain Compressor v1.1.0 MAC OSX-Kleen DB Audioware Sidechain Compressor v1.1.0 MAC OSX-Kleen
Sidechain Compressor is a flexible VST/AU compressor plug-in. It can be used as a regular channel strip compressor for clean crisp compression & limiting across a wide range of mixing jobs (e.g. adding punch to drum tracks or presence to vocals). For additional flexibility, the sidechain controls (Lo Cut/Hi Cut/Shape) let you customise the compression response.

However, Sidechain Compressor’s real party trick is its Universal Sidechain section. This lets you easily do vocal ducking (standard vocal processing in radio production, to fade out music when a narrator is speaking) or add synchronised ducking effects to dance mixes (making your whole mix "pump” or "breathe” by following a kick drum).

Universal Sidechains work in most multi-track applications, even those that do not directly support side-chaining. It only takes a few mouse clicks and you’re up and running!

Blue Cat Audio MB-5 Dynamix v1.21 MacOSX-Kleen Blue Cat Audio MB-5 Dynamix v1.21 MacOSX-Kleen
Soft / VST Instruments 19-12-2015
Blue Cat's MB-5 Dynamix is an extremely powerful all-in-one multiband dynamics processor: it can be used as a multiband compressor, limiter, gate, expander, waveshaper or all combined at once, on any part of the spectrum. The unique dynamics processing section of the Blue Cat's Dynamics plug-in has been streamlined and integrated in this plug-in to process each one of the 5 bands separately.

The plug-in provides unique envelope detection capabilities that let one band trigger the dynamics response on others (internal side-chain). Combined with the advanced stereo features including mid/side processing and independent channels activation, it gives you full control over the dynamics of the signal for a wide range of effects.

An additional brick wall limiter/clipper protects the output for complete control over the dynamics response.

The plug-in provides comprehensive visual feedback to let you know what's exactly going on at every step of the dynamics processor: for each channel, monitor the spectrum, the in/out levels, dynamics response, compression ratio and in/out level of each band...

The user interface has been designed to streamline the workflow, and despite the wide range of functionalities offered by the plug-in, it is extremely easy to use. Inter-bands controls (copy/paste, link...) lets you create complex treatments with a few clicks.

Thanks to its advanced MIDI and automation output capabilities, Blue Cat's MB-5 Dynamix is capable of advanced side-chaining features: you can control other plug-ins with the output of the dynamics processing stage for simple side chain dynamics effects or more advanced signal-dependent effects.

Main Features:
Full featured multiband dynamics processor: compressor, gate, limiter, expander, waveshaper.
Up to 5 bands, with crossover filters from 6 to 60 dB/Oct for optimal separation.
Unique envelope routing capability for cross-band dynamics effects (one band may trigger another).
Dry/wet control for parallel processing ("New York Compression").

Unfiltered Audio G8 v1.2.0 WiN/OSX Incl Patched and Keygen-R2R Unfiltered Audio G8 v1.2.0 WiN/OSX Incl Patched and Keygen-R2R
Soft / VST Instruments 16-12-2015
G8 is a high-quality noise gate with many tricks up its sleeve. It is both a professional dynamics workstation and an experimental amplitude effect. Use it for noise reduction, AM/granular synthesis, bouncing ball rhythm programming, tremolo, trajectory panning, transient shaping, and much, much more.


"Cycle” and "One-shot” gating modes give you the ability to use G8 as a stutter effect, an AM/granular effect, or a tremolo.
Customizable MIDI inputs and outputs allow you to trigger G8 from MIDI clips or to synchronize instruments to G8 for drum replacement or groove extraction. Combined with G8’s alternative gating modes, you can create intricate rhythms, bouncing ball effects, or MIDI clips with granular trigger patterns. Synchronize two instances of G8 over MIDI for the ultimate customizable sidechain.
"Reject” Outputs allow you to hear the audio that gets blocked by the gate. Use this innovative feature to create amplitude-dependent effect chains.
"Flip mode" swaps the regular outputs with the Reject Outputs. Use G8 as a strange compressor, or remove grains from your audio.
Expert Mode contains an advanced routing, amplitude, and filtering matrix for each channel, as well as individual input monitors for up to 4 channels. Use this to clean up the analysis input with even more precision, or to create unpredictable gating polyrhythms.
Sidechain support (in select hosts, please see the compatibility list for more information).
Independent Analysis Gain and Output Gain controls eliminate the frustration of balancing your mix with your ideal analysis level.
RMS and Peak style metering selection ensures that you will always have the right tool for the job.
Lookahead control with accurate latency reporting to the host.
Wet/Dry control for parallel gating, compression, or expansion. The dry signal is latency-compensated to prevent any unwanted phase issues.
Variable Reduction controls the depth of the gating, from full silence to barely-there disturbances.
Hysteresis and Hold parameters to prevent "chatter” or unwanted dropouts.
Locking modes allow you to keep specific parameters frozen on preset change.
DRM Free. When you buy it, you own it. No serial numbers, dongles, or forced internet connections.
Steam Cloud Support means that if you use G8 Gate through Steam, all of your presets will be automatically backed up to the cloud and synced between your computers. Every purchase of G8 includes a Steam Key.
Bayou Media Drum Gator v1.0.4 MacOSX Incl. Keygen HEXWARS Bayou Media Drum Gator v1.0.4 MacOSX Incl. Keygen HEXWARS

Drum Gator is a unique noise gate and envelope shaper designed specifically for drums and percussion. It is available for Windows platforms in VST (32 bit 64 bit) and AAX formats and Mac OSX in VST, VST3, AU, and AAX formats.

Traditional noise gates are triggered when the signal level reaches a threshold set by the user. Gates triggered in this way may chop off the initial onset of the drum hit, creating noticeable artifacts. These artifacts vary depending on the intensity of each drum beat. Also, in order to make sure that all drum hits are allowed through the gate, the user may be tempted to lower the threshold. This can have the side effect of allowing unwanted signals through the gate. The result is a tradeoff, with some drum hits gated out while some unwanted signals are passed through.

Drum Gator does not suffer from the issues experienced with traditional noise gates. It uses a transient detection algorithm combined with spectral analysis to provide an almost uncanny ability to remove only the unwanted drum hits while preserving other program material. It can also do things that are not possible with any other noise gate, opening up creative possibilities that were previously unavailable.

Drum Gator is triggered by a transient detection algorithm which monitors the rate of increase in the initial onset of the drum hit. This algorithm makes Drum Gator much less susceptible to the varying intensities of individual drum hits than conventional gates. It can accurately detect the initial onset of a drum hit resulting in a much more natural sound as the gate opens.

Drum Gator categorizes individual drum hits based on their spectral (frequency) content and provides a separate level control for each category. For example, you can reduce the snare drum "bleed" from a kick drum track or remove it completely by setting its level control to zero. Drum Gator doesn’t depend on the snare drum bleeding through at a lower level than the kick drum in order to remove it. If the signal bleeding through matches the spectral content of the snare drum, it can be removed regardless of its level. This approach is superior to the side chain tuning used by conventional gates and virtually eliminates false triggers.

Enhance or soften transients. Soften the hi-hat while simultaneously adding "snap" to the kick drum. Remove the excess reverb from the tail of the snare. Drum Gator can easily do all these things and more.

The "Closed" control allows you to control the amount of signal passed through when no transients are present, allowing for transient softening as well as "reverse gating" effects. The "Floor" control functions much like the "Range" control of conventional gates, allowing you to add some dry signal back into the mix.

There’s an almost infinite variety of drum and percussion sounds out there, and each instrument has unique spectral characteristics. You can easily train Drum Gator to recognize and process the unique spectral characteristics of your program material. You are not limited to built-in spectral filters.

A New Level of Precision - Meet Essence's ninja sister!

Expurgate is the most advanced noise-detecting, circuit modelled, MIDI sample accurate, 
zero-latency, ultra-fast, lookahead, linear-phase sub-band gate.

The Expurgate Story

Expurgate is a fully-featured gate/expander, with all the customary DMGAudio trimmings.

Let's be honest - gates are not the most exciting of processors, but they are hugely useful. So I've tried to make Expurgate as exciting as possible by including a selection of favourite gate designs. We've tried to make it as quick to use as possible by streamlining the interface, and including a flexible sidechain EQ with spectrum analyser. I've made it as gentle on the CPU as possible whilst still sounding fantastic and also including extra options for more demanding applications to invoke more processing power.

The inclusion of a signal/noise detector can make some tasks, like breath gating, extremely quick to get good results with. Adding sub-band processing means you can use it for tonal and dynamic shaping. The sample-accurate MIDI handling is pretty neat for creative uses, as is the distortion characteristic of using extremely low attack and release times when the safety is off.

We're fairly sure this is the most sophisticated and flexible gate around. As we strive for in our designs, it allows you to get the job done quickly and well. And as always, if you want to go deeper, the options are all there.

If that's too much to consider, set the threshold and Expurgate your noise!
