Here's another video Back to basics about gates.
Please let me know what you think.
I am trying to figure out how the side-chain portion of the gate works. The "manual" is useless, but I guess you get what you pay for :-O
The problem is that I'm not sure how to "route" a signal to the side-chain input.
- Signal path, especially related to FX's (pre-fade & post-fade)
- Using a noise-gate for optimum recording
I've been tinkering around with 2 of them on Cubase. Am I actually hearing a difference in the sound or is it my imagination? The two are set to identical settings.
One is the included "VST Dynamics" gate included in Cubase, and the other is a free one called "G-gate".
I would think there should be no difference (esp. in software), but I swear I hear a difference.
Am I insane again?
Well, I guess I spoke too soon about not having any trouble with PT8. As I learned from Sweetwater tech support today, PT8 does not like to deal with USB drives. So transferring a .wav file from a jump drive can make your computer six kinds of crazy. I managed to get PT working with the CS3 update.
