DMG Audio releases Expurgate - Next-generation gate plugin for Mac & Win

DMG Audio

DMG Audio has released Expurgate, which is described as the most advanced noise-detecting, circuit modelled, MIDI sample accurate, zero-latency, ultra-fast, lookahead, linear-phase sub-band gate.


  • State of the art gating and expansion.
  • Noise detector for automatic gating.
  • Quick, simple, ergonomic interface.
  • Circuit models of classic gates.
  • Configurable from zero-latency, ultra-low CPU to oversampled ultra-high resolution.
  • Ultra-low attack times when the safety is disabled.
  • External sidechain for triggered gating.
  • Global Bypass for all instances in a session.
  • Sample-accurate MIDI triggering as gate or ducker.
  • Three-band sidechain EQ, and massively configurable Split EQ.
  • Separated mode, allowing fine mixing control.
  • Per-channel or ganged control.
  • M/S and L/R processing.
  • Large, intuitive time-plot.
  • Windows VST, VST3 and AAX as 32+64-bit, RTAS 32-bit.
  • Mac VST, VST3, AU and AAX as 32+64-bit, RTAS 32-bit.


  • Linear Phase crossover (Split) EQ.
  • Zero-latency minimum phase mode, with Linkwitz-Riley crossovers.
  • Variable lookahead to avoid losing transients.
  • Oversampling mode to eliminate intermodulation distortions.
  • Full mixer section.
  • Ducking and upwards compression.
  • Threshold, Ratio, Soft-knee, Gain-Reduction Depth and Hysteresis.
  • Variable Stereo linkage.
  • Complete set of Listen options for monitoring, including signal difference (output-input).
  • Automatic detection of noise in signals.


  • Simple three-control interface.
  • Advanced section for precision control.
  • Spectrum analyser for tuning sidechain EQ.
  • Time-plot to highlight signal detection.
  • Freely-resizable UI.
  • Mac Retina support.
  • 8 A/B banks.
  • Intelligent Undo/Redo.
  • Ergonomic channel linkage system.
  • Autolisten for configuring filters.

Price: £99.99 (with first month intro pricing of £89.99).
