Polyverse Music and electronic duo Infected Mushroom have released Gatekeeper, their third plugin together. If you hadn’t guessed already, Gatekeeper is a volume modulator capable of producing sequenced volume patterns, MIDI gates, stutter effects, ducking (pseudo sidechain), planned dynamics, creative gain clipping, and more. Capable of sample-fast transitions and equipped with a unique variable smoothing algorithm, this plugin allows users to automate the fastest volume envelope possible. Gatekeeper’s 8 envelopes can be triggered via MIDI input, and can even produce CV output for external hardware such as modular synthesizers.

Infected Mushroom Gatekeeper is available now for $49, with an intro price of $39. It requires macOS 10.6 or later and an AU, VST, or AAX plugin host.
