The Unfiltered Audio G8 takes dynamic sound shaping to the next level. Deceptively simple, G8 is a tool that reaches far beyond what any normal noise gate can do. While it does a great job at the usual tasks of rejecting noise and shaping transients, the MIDI in/out and alternate gating modes offered by G8 open a world of possibilities that let you forget you're even using a 'Gate'.

Use G8 to create dynamic rhythm patterns on sustained sounds; trigger an envelope on G8 with MIDI input or use it to trigger notes on a MIDI instrument; produce interesting fractal sequences and auto-panning effects with Delay and Output Reject. With Cycle Mode and One-Shot, you can create dramatic motion with G8's envelope, reducing the time value of the envelope to mere milliseconds, resulting in AM synthesis. The four-channel input in the Expert Mode of G8 allows for complex in-DAW routing of different levels and types of content. G8 can split the amplitude of a single source, allowing you to route two different characteristics of your sound to different tracks – the Mains and the Reject.

From transient shaping to trance gating to polyrhythmic beat slicing, G8 can add a whole new level of endless creative possibilities to your sound. Activate the 14-day full function demo with your Plugin Alliance account to hear for yourself.

New for Version 1.2:

  • Native AU external sidechain support.
  • Dark Skin.
  • Massively improved waveform drawing code.
  • Fixed clicks and pops when changing parameters.
  • Optional tooltips for every control.
  • Several automation improvements, greater compatibility with external MIDI controllers.
  • Added AAX native and VST3 formats.


  • 'Cycle' gating mode gives you the ability to use G8 as a stutter effect, an AM/granular effect, or a tremolo.
  • 'One-shot' gating mode allows for surgical transient shaping from any type of sound.
  • Custom MIDI in/out: trigger G8 with an instrument or extract grooves from an audio track to trigger an instrument with G8.
  • Route post-gate, 'Reject Outputs' to another track, or use 'Flip' mode to swap Reject Outputs with G8's main output, essentially reversing the behavior of G8.
  • Four-channel analysis (sidechain) input; two internal and two external, each independently filtered and gain-controlled.
  • Precise triggering with Lookahead analysis.
  • RMS and Peak detection modes.
  • Variable reduction of gated signal allows for subtler processing.
  • Wet/Dry mix for parallel processing.
