Gater-Pro by SPC Plugins is a useful and inspiring stereo trance gate effect. Each time I launch it and create a gated sequence I discover something unique that sparks my creativity. Naturally, it's perfect for trance, but it can also help drive any other kind of rhythmic-based audio. If you're not looking for a robotic sound simply engage the swing feature and bring some humanity back into the mix. I plan to use it on pads, drones, and eBow'd guitar lines to help create a pulse and shimmer that is in sync with the track. While researching, I found a useful suggestion from a fellow user, "You don't need to have the gate at 100% wet, but a hint of Gater-Pro on an effect return can provide some lift to the mix."

PROS

  • Simple, neat and clean interface.
  • Cool features: swing control, switchable rates, three gate shapes, etc.
  • Bypass switch.
  • CPU friendly.
  • Stable.
  • Inexpensive.
  • Responsive developer (good communication and frequent updates).

CONS

  • I can't think of any, but adding a zillion presets would be nice.

CONCLUSION

I highly recommend Gater-Pro for any eMusician, producer, sound designer, DJ, etc., who is creating rhythmic music. It's an excellent little plugin that can make a BIG difference if used wisely. Tommy Zai gives Gater-Pro two perfectly sync'd thumbs up. Thank you, SPC, for creating such a cool audio tool.

Yep, subtractively's a word :) Great review, all reviews should discuss usage tips, there's not enough creativity out there.

great plugin. the yellow/grey gui is somehow not my taste but the plugin itself is top! i use it to "duck" pads and fake sidechain. it's wonderful for many purposes as sqigls pointed out. dare to create your own presets - you wont regret it, i must say that i dont liked the delivered ones.

great plugin but keeps crashing logic 64-bit. it loads but when i open the plugin in a channel strip it crashes logic. :(.

its the only plugin that does this. :(.

You should contact support, I have a feeling Logic is the last area of ironing for OS X.
Let them know how to reproduce the crash, at least touch base. They have ironed out my bugs previously, and sent me special pre-release versions to help the development of the plugin. Best of luck.

still enjoy the plugin. the free upgrade to 3.0 is great. 64-bit for window would be even greater nowdays,.

v3.0 is stable on my rig… OS X 10.8.5, Live 9.0.5, Cubase 6.5.5.
:D.
