Black Salt Audio have released Silencer, a gating plugin specific to cymbals, available at the intro proce of $29.00, increasing to $49.00 after the promotion.
Cymbal bleed is the enemy of great drum mixes. Traditional gates can only help so much before the gating itself becomes obvious. Silencer is the ultimate solution, eliminating cymbal bleed while preserving the integrity of your original sound.
It’s not just a gate… it will forever change the way you mix drums.
Unlike a traditional gate that simply reduces volume, Silencer incorporates a transparent & musical sounding gate with an advanced de-bleeding circuit. This allows you to kill all of the nasty high- frequency bleed while preserving the attack, tone and body of the original sound.
For decades, mixers have had to rely on samples and compromise their live drum mixes because of bleed. With Silencer, all that nasty bleed will disappear – so go ahead and crank that EQ, saturation and compression twice as much as before. It’s so good that your live drum tracks will sound as clean as drum samples.
With dedicated processing for Snare Top, Snare Bottom, Kick and Toms, Silencer intelligently filters out other parts of the kit to avoid mis-triggers. Its true lookahead means the transients you want always get through undamaged. The visualizer and simplified interface allow you to dial in your de-bleeded drum track in seconds.
- Unique De-Bleed circuitry, absent in conventional gates, allows precise and natural gating across the frequency spectrum.
- Multiple predefined drum modes, ensure instant adaptability to any audio material.
- The DeBleed circuit is meticulously tuned by ear, delivering a natural high-end sound that blends seamlessly into any mix.
- The mode-dependent lookahead behavior ensures that no transient snap or attack goes unnoticed.
- Fine-tuned Gate Decay curve allows for gated drums that decay naturally at any length.
- Ghost Note toggle for easy automation, allowing ghost notes to pass through even when below the threshold.
- Precise Waveform Visualizer that provides a clear visual context for setting the Gating Threshold per Mode, allow for quick mix decisions.
- Sidechain Support so the plugin can react based on inputs from various sidechain sources, unlocking a world of flexibility and creative mixing potential.
- User-adjustable Reduction amount to either mute gated material entirely or blend it in to achieve the desired sound.
Silencer is available to PC and Mac users (VST3, AU and AAX).
