smart:gate is out now

July 18, 2023 | News

The wait for our intelligent gate plug-in is over. For smart:gate, we’ve developed an advanced gating methodology with the power of our neural networks. A gates’ rigid focus on the overall signal was causing too much uncertainty, so we switched the focus onto the target signal – we’ve tested smart:gate with a lot of very challenging material and, boy, this gate delivers!

Try smart:gate for 30 days!

smart:gate is not your conventional level-dependent gate (it can be though if you chose to use it that way). Thanks to its content-aware approach, this gate plug-in does not open or close depending on the overall level of the input signal, but it reacts to signal components belonging to the target source. This content-awareness helps to make the gate much more stable and easier to parametrize than conventional gates and it even delivers reliable results if a background signal occasionally exceeds the level of the target source.
