A noise gate is an audio effect commonly used in recording studios and live performances to control unwanted background noise (like produces with high-gain guitar amps, huge value of distortion, overdrive and fuzz effects) or as example for ambient sounds. It helps to clean up the audio signal by eliminating or reducing the volume of quieter sounds below a set threshold level.
The primary function of a noise gate is to distinguish between wanted, and unwanted sounds based on their volume levels. When the input audio signal falls below the threshold, the gate closes, effectively muting or reducing the output volume. As soon as the input signal rises above the threshold, the gate opens, allowing the audio to pass through unaffected.
The noise gate effect is a valuable tool for audio engineers and musicians for controlling unwanted noise and improve the quality of recorded or live audio performances.
The noise gate effect can also be creatively employed to shape the dynamics of a sound. By adjusting the threshold, attack, and release parameters, one can create the “pumping” effects often heard in electronic music genres.
NSGATE effect reproduces noise-gate effects, It draws it’s inspiration from the two well-known modern guitar pedals (MXR™ Noise Clamp and Darkglass™ NSG). NSGATEincludes access to individual controls of the gate envelope (Attack, Hold, Release, Range) as Custom Settings, that can completely alter the character of this noise-gate model’s default values.
Try out NSGATE now as the most flexible noise-gate effect in your Reason Rack.
The ReSwitch IN Audio selector can help you to switch one or a few input channels that can have the same effects, or play individually at the needed moment.
Introducing an audio switcher with 4 stereo inputs and 1 stereo output.
ReSwitch IN audio selector can be very useful for musicians as an input channel switcher for various situations inside the Reason rack. ReSwitch IN aids in selecting one of your incoming signals and allows for FX processing of selected active channels.
RESWITCH IN has a routing scheme with two modes.
MAIN mode: Device includes four ABCD inputs. You can select routing of incoming signals (marked as channels A or B or C or D), one per ABCD group, to the output stereo channel.
MULTI mode: You have four ABCD inputs and you can route them individually to the main output with A, B, C and D dedicated On/Off buttons.
ABCD stereo inputs have their own volume control, and you can also use the device as a 4 line mixer.
Every studio include one or or few multichannel audio interfaces with routed devices to the DAW. Mixers, Audio Interfaces, ADAT interfaces – all of them have connected devices. And ports of this devices sometimes hard to hold in the head to set needed input or output in the right way into the DAW.
REASON as DAW – includes own good known HARDWARE INTERFACE. 16 audio I/O by default.
But we need all time hold in head what instruments or fxs connected to this I/O ports of the audio interafce and also how channels of the interface routed to the Reason Hardware I/O.
Some musicians ( producers / engineers ) can physically (as stickers) mark on the rack all Audio Interface I/O channels with info of routed into the DAW channels, names of used devices. This is a nice solution for Gigs and studio work..
Just a labels, that helps no more to hold in head all needed channels and devices. And we present INFOBAY IN device as Interface Helper Utility.
REASON IN: set digits of Reason Input channels (as mono or stereo pairs)
HARDWARE IN: Set Channel digits of Audio interfaces (multiple interafces)
FROM DEVICE: Set names of connected instruments/fxs to the Reason I/O
DEVICE TYPE ICON: Use instruments and fx Icons to fast recognize connecnted devices.
All info from Front panel duplicated to the Rear and Folded panels.
Enter to the table 16 x 4 custom info about channels of Reason I/O and ports of the multiple Audio Interfaces.
INFOBAY IN Rack Extension helps to fill labels of Audio Inputs with digits of routing channels, names and icons of the connected devices.
With INFOBAY IN – no more needs to hold in head all this routing info with channels digits, devices names
