Boz Digital Labs has released Gatey Watey, a lightweight but clever gate plugin. Unlike traditional gates, Gatey Watey lets you choose which frequencies get attenuated when the level drops below the threshold, making for a much more natural sounding gate. It works great for getting rid of drum bleed without cutting off your drums, or de-noising electric guitars without cutting off the sustain. Boz posits that this is how all gates should work, but for some reason, they don’t.
Boz Digital Labs Gatey Watey is available now for $10, but it’s free
through May 7 until midnight May 9 with coupon code FREEGATEY. It requires an AU, VST, AAX, or RTAS plugin host.
