Unfiltered Audio has released version 1.1 of G8, a major update to the dynamic gate effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
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.
Changes in G8 v1.1
Audition Mode! You can now listen to your sidechain inside of Expert Mode, including any mixing and filtering applied to the four channels.
True zero latency. G8 originally used one sample of delay. We re-wrote a significant portion of the DSP to achieve this, but G8 will sound exactly the same!
All latency reporting bugs fixed. We had one or two reported crashes in Cubase when sudden Lookahead changes occurred. Those are gone. In addition, G8’s latency reporting was often off by a sample or two. Now it’s 100% accurate. If you sum G8’s output with a phase-inverted copy, you’ll get complete silence, no matter your lookahead setting.
True bypass mode. For hosts that support the VST bypass standard (Cubase, etc.), G8 will now report its latency during this mode. You can now automate G8’s host bypass without any artifacts.
Display bugs fixed. You can close G8’s interface and re-open it, and your display settings will be maintained.
Interface improvements. These are back-ported from improvements made with Sandman. You can now double-click any knob to reset it to a default value. We swapped positions of the LP and HP sidechain filter to better fit the standard placements.
G8 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for $49.99 USD.
Wire Grind has launched Noise Gate Plus, a noise gate effect plug-in for Windows.
Noise Gate Plus has several special controls that use time, logic, and probability to control the gate. It also uses a special anti-click gating algorithm. Noise gates typically produce a clicking noise when using either a short attack time or a short release time. Wire Grind’s algorithm is able to virtually eliminate this type of noise.
The special controls are Attack Delay, Early Release, Hold Closed, and Beat Skip. The last of these is a feature that probabilistically mutes audio events and it borderlines on automatic computer improvisation. Noise Gate Plus bears similarity to Wire Grind’s Advanced Noise Gate. The most obvious difference is the redesigned user interface. Noise Gate Plus also adds a hysteresis control, and its envelopes differ slightly. Notably, Noise Gate Plus lacks the various equalization controls found on Advanced Noise Gate. This has resulted in a more simple interface which might appeal to some users.
Noise Gate Plus features
Anti-click gating algorithm.
Early gate release.
Two attack envelopes.
Independent and linked channel processing.
The plug-in is available for Windows (VST) for $59 USD.
