KiloHearts Gate Features

 

Attack knob
The attack time is the time it takes to for the gate to fully open when the input volume is over the threshold.
Hold knob
The hold time is the minimum time the gate will stay open.
Release knob
The release time is the time it takes to for the gate to fully close when the input volume is under the threshold.
Threshold knob
The volume threshold for when the gate will open.
Tolerance knob
A hysteresis range requiring the volume to drop a set amount of dB under the threshold before closing.
Range knob
The amount to attenuate the signal when the gate is closed.
Look-ahead
When enabled, a 5ms look-ahead will be used, allowing transients through at the cost of latency.
Flip
When flipped, the gate will act in reverse attenuating the signal when the gate is open.
VU Meter
Displays the current input level, the selected threshold and tolerance, and the gate’s current state.
Sidechain
When you select anouther sound source in the sidechain drop-down the plugin uses that source for determining the behaviour of the plugin instead, it still effects the main sound source. This is useful for lowering a lead sound whenever the kick hits.
Settings panel
Whenever you have your mouse cursor over a snapin there is a small arrow at the top right corner (not visible in screenshot). It opens a settings panel where you handle presets.
Enabled checkbox
The small checkbox to the left of the plugin name is a checkbox that bypasses the effect when disabled.
Resize handle
The bottom right corner of all Kilohearts plugins is a resize handle for scaling the UI to any size. This allows you to get a good view of the controls whatever the screen resolution, and also comes in handy if you need big controls, e.g. when using Gate as a real-time effect on a touchscreen monitor during a live set. (This is not available when the snapin is used inside a snapin host.)
