This plugin is going to be particularly useful for those of us that record live drums, especially on toms! Quite often, as you know, drummers will have their cymbals really low to their toms, and they may go around and play a cymbal, and then a tom, so the cymbal will bleed into it. This bleed along with any bleed from the other instruments, like the snare, hi-hats, and everything else can create a lot of issues in your recording. This plugin is able to solve most – if not all! – of those bleed issues!
What makes the Multiband Gate stand out from traditional gates is that is allows you to set the timing of each frequency band of a drum separately. For example, letting the lows of a tom ring out gloriously, while shutting off the high end quickly giving you the attack you want without letting the cymbals ruin your mix.
The traditional way of doing this by chaining many gates and side chains is avoided by putting all of this into one plugin. Each band can be mixed and processed separately so every band has its own particular enhancements without messing up the others.
This is a truly great plugin and I am so excited to get to try it out! Don’t forget to scroll up and enter for your chance to win one!
