Multidimensional Gate

US K-Devices releases Secta for MacOS and Windows      04/10/23

K-Devices has released Secta, a new audio effect, as a VST3 and Audio Unit plugin for MacOS and Windows. This is what they have to say about it...

Building on the concept of a multidimensional gate, Secta processes the audio in a unique way, adding an ephemeral and dramatic touch to acoustic instruments, warmly disintegrating loops, injecting abrupt drops and retexturizing your lines, or throwing down any beat into a dark path of fragmentation.

At first, Secta splits the incoming signal acting as a gate effect: the user sets an amplitude threshold using the Verge and Boost parameters. The signal's amplitude portion greater than the threshold value generates an envelope which controls the Above and Below sections. The envelope itself controls the frequency of a lowpass filter in the Above section (resulting similar to a lowpass gate), while its inverse value controls the amplitude of the Below section. Such envelope can be shaped using several global parameters: Smooth, Retain, and Sidechain.
Above and Below sections process sounds using a different set of effects each: the more rumbling Above, the more textural and looney Below.
Using one section at a time holds interesting sculpting results, while combining and balancing them is great for creating richer textures.

Hard-to-describe with classic effect categories, Secta processes both sides of a gated source independently, acting as a counterpoint amplitude sculptor. Secta cuts to (re)generate. Secta is a colorizer, no mix parameters are available: just load Secta onto your track and let it inspire you with its timbrical shades. A gate, a dynamic multi-distortion, a double heads tectonic monster, a trembling detuned textures generator, and more... so many uses of Secta have yet to be discovered!
