Boz Digital has announced that its Gatey Watey gate plugin for Windows and Mac is free until Sunday, May 7th, 2017.
Gatey Watey is a lightweight but clever gate plugin. Unlike traditional gates, Gatey Watey lets you choose which frequencies get attenuated when the level drops below the threshold, making for a much more natural sounding gate.
It works great for getting rid of drum bleed without cutting off your drums, or de-noising electric guitars without cutting off the sustain. Basically, it’s how all gates should work, but for some reason, they don’t.
In the video above, Gatey Watey is used on a drum track with too much “bleed” on the toms. Where traditional gating fails, Gatey Watey excels. Gatey Watey lets you control which frequencies will be gates, and which frequencies preserved, letting you keep your tom sustain, while killing the cymbal bleed.
Gatey Watey regularly costs $10, but for a limited time you can get it for free. For that, just use coupon code freegatey at checkout. But hurry up, the offer is valid throughout Sunday, May 7th.
Keep in mind that during the checkout process you will have to create an account (for free) at Boz Digital. The serial code needed to activate your copy of Gatey Watey will be found on “My Plugins” section.
