Due to some issues with the bundled Noise Gate plugins (i.e. dB scale is off, etc), and, because I wanted to have envelope settings based on time values, I created a new Noise Gate plugin. It uses more resources than I would like, but I have not optimised it as of yet. Because of some anomolies, and the nature of the code, it will take a bit of work to optimize it, without breaking it, so, I will probably hold off from doing that until I am sure there are no bugs, etc. There is a mono version and a semi-stereo version (inputs/outputs stereo, but the gate is controlled by whichever signal is greater, rather than processing both channels seperately (you can use 2 of the mono version, if you want seperate control of the left and right channels)). The parameters are as follows: ON: Range (0 to -96 dB) This is the dB level at which the gate begins to turn ON (no output until the signal is above this value). OFF: Range (0 to -96 dB) This is the dB level at which the gate begins to turn OFF. This should not be set above the ON threshold setting for normal use. Attack: Range (1 ms to 3 seconds) This setting controls how fast the volume reaches full level, (only) when the gate first turns ON (the volume level is incrementally increased). Hold: Range (0.1 ms to 3 seconds) This setting controls how long the gate will stay ON after the signal drops below the OFF threshold setting. (Helps to keep the gate from turning on/off due to momentary drops in the signal level.). Release: Range (1 ms to 3 seconds) This setting controls how quickly the volume goes to 0, after the gate has dropped below the OFF threshold, and has completed the hold time. (the volume is incrementally decreased). You can download the plugin (N-Gate) here. Let me know what you think, and/or if you find any bugs, etc. -Russ BTW: It is compiled for 3538j.
