That Trance Gate/ Stuttering Effect new
      #470641 - 08/06/07 11:46 AM
Hi,

I have just started remixing a Rock track for a band. they have asked me to make a house/ trance RMX and am stuck now on the vocal line. I want to keep it as the main element of the track but now am poised with that all famous gating/ stuttering technique? I tried editing last night with silences between 1/16ths and 1/128ths but cant seem to get it to sound like the pros.

Are theere any software EFX that does this nicely? I have a little bit of money to my disposal and was hoping their might be a universal unit that people who do this a lot know about?

Please help i am reaching deadline and this is the last element to completion.

Many thanks in advance

Gaffball

Which version of SX are you using?

The Midigate plugin in SX will do exactly what you need. Tutorial here .

seems not as flexible as the free HybridAlien MidiGate which allows you to simply trigger the inserted gate from any midi track, so you can for example copy a hi-hat pattern to a new track and assign that tracks destination to midigate and thus make it clone any pattern in your composition as a gate trigger - or create a new dedicated trigger pattern, whatever, it's not limited to 16 steps

hmm, appears the company site has dissapeared but you can d/load it here if u register & login

Im Using SX3 so dont think the SX4 Midid Gate applies - if u know any others though please do tell.

Thanks for the hybrid plug link. Just DL'd it and will try it as soon as i get in front of my DAW.

The triggering sounds best as then i have full control of the rhythm which is already embedded in the track - will try with the hihats to start.

Thanks guys and please do keep em coming.

You could always just automate the volume, and copy and paste it, couldn't you ?

I stumbled upon a VST effect a short while ago that sounds really nice and one of the elements is a trancegate - its called camelspace. I think you can try a demo at their website.

Hope this helps!

Let me know what you think!

Well the Midigate plugin in SX2.2 is exactly the same as the one described in the link, and I doubt they removed it for SX3.

Eventide H3000, preset called "Stutter" can't remember the number though. Works wonders. I stopped using it because it can too easily become over-used, after all, "it is very attractive"

Take care,

Tony.

I completely agree with Fruitylooper.

Use Camelspace.

You can also use it for other weird and wonder Flange/Delay/Filtering/enhancing effects on your vocals.

Also, you can't just Automate the Volume or switch the track on and off to create a gating effect- you need to be able to control the Attack and Decay of the Gate to get it sounding right - You can in Camelspace.

Also "Killergate" does this and is a more basic gating plug-in.

Lordy, that one still ?

Last time I used that was so long ago it was a classic Drawmer gate triggered from the hi-hat track, from an analogue multitrack. I do hope your use will be 'ironic'... it is, just a touch, maybe, somewhat passe !
