AfroDJMac has released another free Ableton Live Pack: Gated Reverb.
The 1980s brought us some pretty cool production techniques. I often try to emulate them in Ableton. One of the more timestamped effects is gated reverb.
Producers wanted huge drum sounds, but didn’t want the drums washed out in reverb. The solution was found by placing a gate after the reverb. This will suddenly silence the reverb once it drops to a certain level. Think Phil Collins’ “Coming in the Air Tonight.” If you have ever wanted your drums to sound like they were being played by Godzilla in the Grand Canyon, this is the technique for you.
The Gater Reverb Rack is a free download at AfroDJMac.
Tek’it Audio has announced the release of GattR, a sequenced stereo gate effect plug-in for Windows.
Link the sequencers to create the same sequence synced on the tempo of your DAW. Control the speed of the steps, change the play direction of the sequence. Create stereo gate, chop and fade effects on the 32 steps sequencers and mix them with your original sound! Randomly generate your effect with a single click. Undo your changes on all the parameters, just as easily. Assign all the parameters to your MIDI controller easily. Click on “Learn” on the parameter, move the control on your MIDI controller, and that it’s!

Sonalksis has announced its 10 Year Anniversary, offering a ‘once in a decade’ discount for a limited time.
10 years ago in Liverpool, England, the founding members of Sonalksis produced the SV-315 Equaliser plugin, the first host based processing EQ to offer professional studio quality in an affordable package ‘in the box’. The specs at the time were quite remarkable, internal 64 bit audio processing and the ability to run over 80 instances on a Pentium PC or G4 Macintosh (both leading edge machines at the time).
Over the following two years the team expanded the ‘Essentials Collection’ to include the SV-315 Compressor and the SV-517 Analogue Gate, and then went on to produce some of the most highly respected plugins for tracking, mixing and mastering available today.
To help celebrate the first 10 years of Sonalksis we are offering a ‘once in a decade’ discount of 60% off all Sonalksis plugins and bundles until the end of the month!
To take advantage of this discount use coupon code DECADE60 at checkout. The promotion ends October 31st, 2012.
