This is great but the most recent Windows version 1.41 shows two positives at virustotal.com. I hope they are false positives but not being 100% sure, I'll have to wait before the issue is cleared up before I will use this again.
Only one review, this really deserved hundreds because it is simply excellent. A very flexible yet simple and intuitive tool, which even in expert mode is simple to understand and tweak parameters. Bot sure what more one could want from a gating effect but it beats all the commercial ones I've tried. And its free, easily worth a score or more.
I like this plugin a lot. The presets all seem to be geared to dance / EDM genres, which doesn't do a whole lot for me, so I basically never use them.
So, if you're not working in those genres, you might think this thing is way too over-the-top. The solution to that is simple - turn down the mix knob. Actually, I rarely use this over 50%, and I quite often use this as a send effect rather than an insert. I find it easier to control that way.
My favorite use for this is on pads. It just adds a rhythmic component to them. But again, subtlety is key. There is a fine line between adding a relatively subtle rhytmic pulse to a track, and making the whole track sound like an EDM banger.
It's free, but having used it now for 3+ months, it would easily be worth at least $20 to me, and I'm a cheap SOB. It's just sooooo easy to use, and it can really help give a nice "breathing" to an otherwise lifeless part. Just don't try to use it to rhythmize your whole track, unless you want it to be repetitive as all getout.
One suggestion I have for improvement is to be able to adjust the note value of each 16-part pattern. It only allows for 16th note durations, which can be pretty limiting, especially if you're not into dance music.
I run it in OS X/Ableton and it works great. I would say this is one of my top 5 free plugins, it is way better than any of the commercial gating effects I have tried. Very intuitive controls in expert mode, simply superb!!.
