SSL X-Gate


Expander Plug-In (ESD)

  • Comprehensive tool for mixing
  • Inspired by classic analogue gates and the way SSL's live and broadcast consoles work
  • Easy-to-use threshold and range controls, visually aligned with the waveform diagram and gain reduction meter for targeted control
  • Rolling waveform visualisation for precise threshold setting
  • Hysteresis allows separate open and close threshold, attack, release and hold time for detailed sound shaping
  • Interactive filter graphic for setting low-pass and high-pass filters in the sidechain
  • Expander mode with adjustable knee characteristics for expanding the signal dynamics
  • Lookahead function with options for minimising the resulting latency time
  • Duck mode reverses the sidechain function and allows easy use as a ducker
  • Switchable peak / RMS detection for optimal adaptation to the signal source
  • Clear indication of the gate's current state with the help of a three-colour traffic light
  • M/S option for special creative gate effects or for targeted processing of the mono or stereo components of the signal
  • Different monitoring modes for sidechain and gate
