Default Unfiltered Audio G8 on sale for $19 (AAX Native, AU, VST2, VST3)

https://www.plugin-alliance.com/en/p..._audio_g8.html

I bought it not because of the fancy shmancy creative modes, but because its "regular gating" mode has an invert function whereby audio is cut whenever it rises ABOVE the threshold, then restored when it falls back below the thresh (or hysteresis, if it is set above 0 dB).

Few gates seem to have this feature, which you can find on SSL consoles (but incidentally not on plug-in emulations of those consoles)

And it has hysteresis control that goes all the way to -80 dBFS!

In about 2 minutes of playing around, I was able to create some cool robotic textures with the Cycle function. Setting to a 7 ms attack, 0 hold, 4 ms release, -inf reduction, and 50% wet. I know I said I didn't get it for the fancy modes, but this is a bonus IMO

Interesting. How do you use this mode?

The demo video on the website is really helpful

It sounds like a very cool sound design tool

i guess i AM a plugin whore lol... for less than a $20 it is worth playing with. not big on 'creative gating' lol (i am an old musician) but who says an old dog can't learn new tricks. i will say it's feck'n horrid looking to say the least.. they should have kept their crayons out and scribbled some more.

i demo'd back when it first came out on Steam (yeah the game seller) but if not mistaken it was like $99 which was the creator dreaming for riches. then Dirk and the boys put it up for $69 and i felt PA took a step backwards in quality standards but demo'd again just in case i missed something (for the most part i like Dirk's judgement)... nope still too damn much for me. not worth it.

but now i have found i bought it for $19 to be used like a real noise gate... to remove noise... NOT to make more lol. but in closing... i think the price was just right this time. for it's simple to wild function... at this price... i can over 'look' the monstrosity. lol

Used to be we keyed off track 24 so that a listenback mic would close when SMPTE was running, then open up when the transport was still. Not to imply I'm old or seasoned (I'm not), I just really liked working with tape for awhile. But I've used it to do rhythmic reverb and delay throws also.

Inverse keying is GREAT when you're dealing with a phone patch and want to key out the duplexing. Might have to grab this one.

Got it, but haven't had much of a chance to play with it. Dang, they didn't waste any time on the user interface, did they? Seems to WORK quite well.
