Product Description

Kilohearts Gate has simple but powerful controls for tuning in the desired effect, and can easily be driven by an external sidechain signal. The gate can also be flipped around to make a signal duck under another.


Not all sound is created alike, and sometimes you want to just leave it at the Gate. Quickly cut out low hum and noise from the signal, cut reverb tails short or exaggerate the dynamics in a beat. The possibilities are... maybe not endless, but should cover your gating needs!


This virtual effects plug-in is part of the Kilohearts Essentials plug-ins and one of a growing collection of that form the Kilohearts Ecosystem. They can be used as regular plugins (VST/AAX/AU) but also as Snapins when combined with other plug-ins from the Kilohearts Ecosystem. These lightweight and high-quality plug-ins have intuitive no-nonsense interfaces so you will be using them like a master in no time.
