Polyverse Music and electronic duo Infected Mushroom have released Gatekeeper, a volume modulator capable of producing sequenced volume patterns, MIDI gates, stutter effects, ducking (pseudo sidechain), planned dynamics, creative gain clipping, and more.
Capable of sample-fast transitions and equipped with a unique variable smoothing algorithm, Gatekeeper is designed to allow users to automate a volume envelope for a sound source to create drastic, punchy gating and sequencing while keeping output smooth. In addition, Gatekeeper's special boost and clip functions make it possible to distort transients for extreme snappiness.
Gatekeeper is intended to be versatile. It can act as an LFO, envelope, step sequencer, sample accurate automation and more. Curve brushes and an elaborate shortcut system allows for drawing automation. The plug-in's 8 envelopes can be triggered via MIDI input, and can even produce CV output for external hardware such as modular synthesizers. Gatekeeper also includes hundreds of patterns and presets.
Price: $49 USD. For more information about Gatekeeper, please visit: polyversemusic.com
