This isn’t the first time we’ve looked at gates in our Logic Pro Tips series. A few months back, our Logic Pro expert, Jono Buchanan, showed us how to use sidechained gates. This time, we’re diving a little deeper, getting to the crux of what a gate is truly capable of.
Jono breaks down the concept of a noise gate, explaining and demonstrating how noise gates only allow sounds above a user-defined threshold to be heard. Jono also explores the real-world use cases of this technique, and why it could be essential in a lot of your tracks.
