123creative Multiband NoiseGate NX3

123creative has launched Multiband NoiseGate NX3, a multi-band noise gate effect plug-in for Windows.

Noise gate is processor that „mute“ signal that is quieter than threshold level and vice versa pass signal that is louder than threshold level. This is mostly used during recording of live drums on more microphones, so if you are recording hi-hats microphone is also recording kick drum but at much lower level. You want to remove quite sound of bass drum from hi-hat channel – you use noise gate. Noise gate is useful also for removing low analog noise, low room reverb or some disturbing noises/speech in background of record. Next example from real use: you are recording guitar and want to use digital simulation of pedals and combo, but you record it with very low noise level for example -80db, later this low level noise is multiplied by distortion/fuzz pedal simulation to level -40db and more, so you need to remove this noise: it is suggested to use noisegate at input to remove very low noise -80db.

Often you don’t want to mute full frequency spectrum, but you want to set different threshold level of other frequency ranges – for example you want to mute just quite subbass under 50db.

For these purposes you will need Multi band noise gate.

Multiband noise gate can be used also for special creative effects, try it on any drum loops or if you are slicing melodic loops (with Slicer in FL studio for example) for creating glitch music styles, try to use multi band noise gate to get much more natural sound and effect of more glued slices together. Possibilities are endless…from technical things to creative freedom.

The plugin is available for the introductory price of 13.23 EUR (regular 18.90 EUR).

eaReckon updates ANALOG87 Series to v1.2.0 (incl. new MD-GATE87)

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 27, 2014 - comment 0 comments

eaReckon has announced version 1.2.0 of its ANALOG87 Series of effect plug-ins, which now includes MD-GATE87.

eaReckon MD-GATE87
SD-GATE87 is the MIDI version of the SD-GATE87 sidechain gate and “duck” effect plug-in.

It features a MIDI input but no audio sidechain. With its MIDI option disabled, it works exactly the same as SD-GATE87 (in non-sidechain mode).

Once the MIDI option enabled, the gate is controlled by a single MIDI note (a “Learn” function will help you to assign it the easy way).

Different MIDI modes are available (these are described in the updated manual):
- In Gate mode: Trigger, Unmute and Play.
- In Duck mode: Trigger, Mute (A) and Mute (L).

Changes in ANALOG87 Series v1.2.0

    [SD-GATE87/SD-COMP87]: Important improvement of the reference section and sidechain processing.
    [SD-GATE87] With the (thresholds) ‘Link’ option enabled, it is now possible to adjust both (high and low) thresholds by manipulating any of the two threshold knobs.
    [SD-GATE87] Improved precision of the fine tuning option (Shift + Mouse) of some knobs (Attack, Hold, Release).
    [PR-EQUA87] Improved frequency analyzer: higher “resolution”, new ‘Threshold’ and ‘Release’ controls.
    [CS-STRIP87] New ‘Signal Flow’ option that can be used to change the order of effects.

The ANALOG87 Series for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for 99 EUR. The MD-GATE87 is free for registered users of SD-GATE87.

Expert Sleepers releases ES-40, ESX-8CV & ESX-8GT mk2 Eurorack synth modules

Expert Sleepers Eurorack modules

Expert Sleepers has announced the release of three new Eurorack synth modules.

The Expert Sleepers range of modules (including the ES-3 Lightpipe/CV Interface, offering ADAT connectivity instead of the ES-40′s S/PDIF) offers a highly configurable range of computer/synthesizer interfacing solutions, supported not only by Expert Sleepers own Silent Way software but increasingly used in conjunction with e.g. Max/MSP or NI’s Reaktor.

Because the modules connect over an audio interface, rather than say USB or Ethernet, they are able to offer rock solid timing and deep integration with standard audio environments.

New Expert Sleepers Eurorack modules

  • The ES-40 SPDIF Interface (£94.80) converts a standard S/PDIF input to five channels of expansion headers, which are used in conjunction with the Expert Sleepers ESX range of expanders.
  • The ESX-8CV CV Expander (£130.80) is an expansion module for the ES-4, ES-40 or ES-5, adding eight CV outputs from one expansion header.
  • The ESX-8GT mk2 Gate Expander (£54) is an expansion module for the ES-4, ES-40 or ES-5, adding 8 on/off outputs for use as gates, triggers, clocks etc. from one expansion header.

All modules are available to purchase immediately.
