SSL releases X-Gate Plug-in, Precise and Intuitive.


SSL has added another plugin to its burgeoning Complete subscription bundle, the X-Gate. An X-rated gating plugin that is designed to be precise and intuitive.


The X-Gate other features include variable lookahead times and the promise of zero additional latency at the lowest setting, making X-Gate suitable for tracking when you need to avoid mic bleed.


Shape your gate on a visual interface


Additionally, you can use the plugin in Expander mode when you need transparent gating, or Duck mode when you want to attenuate a signal when it reaches a certain threshold. Try it in combination with your DAW’s sidechain function for ‘intelligent’ ducking.


“Fast, snappy and precise, X-Gate is guaranteed to be your new workhorse plug-in for shaping drums and other instruments, adding punch to your mixes, and transparently fixing ghost notes, noise or room bleed,” says Jonathan Sandman, Plug-ins Product Manager at SSL.


X-Gate runs on PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats. As well as being included in the SSL Complete subscription ($15/month).  You can also buy it on its own for the introductory price of $89, regular price $129 starting 28 July.
