    A dynamic device that has the ability to stop audio passing through it based on a certain threshold. Originally designed to shut down audio output in passages with no program material (where tape hiss might be evident) or to lower bleed on drum microphones. Gates can also been used creatively, notably the gated reverb of Phil Collins' 80s drum sound.
