Alex Hilton has announced that the free A1TriggerGate sequenced gate plugin is now available in the VST3 format for Windows and macOS.
This plugin synchronizes to the host sequencer / DAW tempo. Each internal sequencer pattern consists of 4 beats / 16 steps (or 12 steps in Triplet mode). Each step length is either a ‘ShortStep’, ‘LongStep’, ‘StepLink’ or ‘NoStep’ and has its own step volume fader. There are 8 independent patterns that can be switched via automation.
The integrated FX (Lowpass Filter, Drive/Distortion and Echo/Delay) are designed for easy usage. There is only a minimal number of parameters to get the desired effect as fast as possible. Of course there is a ‘Global FX Off’ switch to step through all presets without hearing any of the integrated FX.
In Expert Mode there a 4 pattern command tabs featuring ‘shift left/right’, ‘copy & paste, ‘random’ and ‘init’ commands either for the step volume values, the step length values or all of them. Especially the ‘random’ command on step length values gives interesting results and is a good source for inspiration.
A1TriggerGate is free to download in VST/VST3, AU, and AAX formats. The A1StereoControl will soon get VST3 support as well.
