New X-Gate Plugin From SSL

US An advanced gate processor      29/06/22

SSL have just released the X-Gate, a precision gate processor which allows you to sculpt your sound in a variety of ways. It offers control over hysteresis, mid/side processing and sidechain filtering - with look ahead and ducking modes also included. In the video, Diogo from Gear Space guides us through some of the processing features. Here's the info from the product page:

SSL X-Gate is a comprehensive and highly visual gating plug-in, inspired by the workflow from SSL's digital broadcast consoles. Featuring a rolling waveform graph, mid/side processing options & tweakable hysteresis using independent open & closed thresholds, X-Gate builds upon SSL's rich heritage in digital console gate design. 

X-Gate delivers a range of unique control features for sound sculpting – use the interactive sidechain filter interface and mid/side balance options to focus the gate on unwanted sounds and process the signal as naturally as you'd like. In addition to visual feedback including the hardware-inspired traffic light system for immediate visual confirmation of the gate's current status, the rolling waveform visualisation graph provides an intuitive display of the incoming signal against which to set your open and close thresholds. 

The EXP and DUCK modes immediately drops the plug-in into two additional modes, visualised by the I/O graph: fixed expander mode for transparent gating, and duck mode for attenuating a signal only when it exceeds a threshold – combine this with your DAW's sidechain for intelligent ducking.


It retails for $129, but is currently on introductory offer for $89, More information on the SSL website: https://store.solidstatelogic.com/plug-ins/ssl-x-gate
