  • Lookahead of up to 1000 ms.
  • 'Just in time' link mode.
  • Channel & sidechain link switches.
  • Sidechain monitoring switches.
  • Response invert switches.
  • Output pan & mix controls.


Voice Production: Use sideGATE as a lookahead noise-gate when, for example, you have a presenter speaking against background noise. Normal gating would result in a bump in background noise as the presenter speaks and the gate opens but with sideGATE's lookahead feature the background noise can be gently faded in before the presenter speaks creating a smoother, less objectionable, sound.

Music Production: When the sidechain is higher than the threshold the channel is audible, when lower it is gated - just the sort of functionality needed to gate a reverb according to the level of a snare drum, a synth according to a hi-hat, a bass according to a bass drum and so on.

sideGATE can also be used to alter the attack of a sound (e.g. soften a solo electric guitar making it feel more like a lap steel) and its panned outputs can be used to create a situation where the position of a sound in the stereo field is switched according to its volume.
