Alex Hilton (aka A1 Audio) has released an update to A1TriggerGate which is still available as a FREE download. The updates adds VST3. CLAP is not yet available however there may be plans to include that format too.
There were some other sequenced- / rhythmic-gates out there, but honestly none of them really satisfied me as a music producer. So I decided to write my own plugin to get the job done without too much hassle…
In the last decade it was a very popular producing style in all the dance music genres to have at least one ‘rhythmic gated’ sound in almost every production. Nowadays this powerful production technigue for achieving more rhythmic dynamics got its revival in house music, dubstep, trap, hip-hop and even pop tracks.
Each section of step length buttons & step volume faders represents one beat of your pattern sequence. You can choose between ‘No Step’, ‘ShortStep’, ‘LongStep’ and ‘StepLink’ by simply pressing a step length button. Each beat consists of 4 steps (1/16 notes in ‘Normal Mode’) or 3 steps (1/8T notes in ‘Triplet Mode’) and each step has its own step volume fader above to dial in its relative level.
The integrated FX (Lowpass Filter, Drive/Distortion and Echo/Delay) are designed as easy as possible. No vast amounts of parameters to dial in to get the desired effect on your sound. Simply turn it on and tweak it a little and you’re ready to go !
Of course there is a ‘Global FX Off’ switch to step through all presets without any of the integrated FX. Professional producers will appreciate that little feature.
If you are looking for the right groove or just an interesting rhythmic pattern, sometimes it is a good way to let my plugin provide you with some randompatterns. Just press ‘random’ several times and use the sequence you like.
A1TriggerGate is available to PC and Mac users (VST2, VST3, AU and AAX).
