FrettedSynth has released SlowBeer, an audio gate with very fast tracking (starts at about -60db and seems to be quite smooth on the gate close).
- Gate control
- ADSR controls
- Very low CPU usage, Zero latency with a fade in of about 1.5ms
- 4 versions are included in the download:
- Mono gate
- Stereo gate
- Mono gate side chained
- Stereo gate side chained
Tips from the developer:
- Gate sets the input-threshold, at MIN it needs about 0db to trigger the gate, at MAX it needs about -62db to trigger the gate.
- Release sets the time to re-trigger and the gate close time from about 2ms to about 200ms.
SlowBeer is available as a freeware VST effect plugin for Windows.

Oh, and while you’re over there check out the Drive5 amp simulation as well. It was FrettedSynths entry in the KVR DC 2006.
Drive-5 is an amp sim without speaker emulation and is meant to use convolution for the speaker emulation.
