Note: this plug-in only works with a d8b running Service Pack 3 (see Downloads tab) and equipped with one or more optional UFX card(s).
Frequency Conscious Gating, Limiting, and Expansion, Compression
as master of the analogue dynamics processor, Drawmer now brings its
expertise in noise gates, expanders and compressor/limiters to the
Mackie Digital 8•Bus.
- Left and Right input levels. -15.75dB to +16dB in 0.25dB increments.
- Input VU meters. -42dB to 0dB.
for quick parameter control. All thresholds and levels are in linear
dBs, but other controls are scaled to a user friendly law which
minimizes 'fine tuning' and allows a wide range of operation.
- Mem A and Mem B Presets. You can instantly recall two preferred settings.
Gate. Operates like an audio switch, and is particularly suited to
percussive signals, where it can shape the envelope to create a crisp,
well defined signal.
Click on to toggle selection of trigger sources. In Stereo mode, the
gate can trigger from either the Left or Right channels, a mono signal
generated Left + Right or MIDI.
- Envelope Controls. Control the speed at which the Gate opens and closes.
switch. When Duck is selected, the operation is reversed, so that when
the signal is above threshold, the output is attenuated. Below
Threshold, the signal passes un-attenuated.
The ADX100 provides either a Noise Gate or
an Expander. Use the Noise Gate to shape the envelopes of percussive signals,
such as drums. For vocals or other expressive signals, the Expander may be better
suited to the task, since it can track the signal levels instead of simply switching
on and off.
