Finally, a gate that actually does what a gate was always supposed to do…

First and foremost, the job of an audio gate is to let the target audio events through unaffected, and only attenuate the unwanted signal.

In SuperGate, like any other gate, you have two jobs: find and isolate the target sound, and determine when to trigger the gate.

Unlike other gates, SuperGate lets you customize the gate attack and release gain curves precisely to the sound you are isolating, as you listen, while visually referencing our specialized WYSIWYG detector display.

Further, the gate curve you build is not applied as a set of dynamic expander parameters, but a programmed set of sample-by-sample instructions defining the gain structure and duration of the Attack-Hold-Release gate envelope itself. When the trigger point is reached during playback, this set of instructions modifies the samples describing the target sound, thereby applying the gate.

Applying the gain curves in this way completely avoids aliasing artifacts, the interpolation stages required to correct for them, and the modulation and smearing effects that degrade the gain transition.

The audible advantage of this approach is immediately apparent as you work with the processor. The Open and Close gate curves are applied with perfect repeatability as if they were copy/pasted onto the audio stream at the trigger point (which is in fact exactly the case), and all the minute variations of each audio event which provide feel and personality can come through the gate completely untouched.
