Studio guru Eli Krantzberg presents an in-depth video tutorial series on Gating! Learn what Gating is and how to apply it to your tracks for a clearer mix, or to add special effects and processing to your sounds.

Eli welcomes you to the video tutorials and then starts at the beginning, explaining exactly what a "Noise Gate" is and all of its basic controls, as well as hearing how they work, clinically, on a square wave.

Next Eli gives you a tutorial on understanding Downward Expansion and how it works as a subtler means of reducing signal levels, and then shows it in action on a noisy electric guitar part.

Eliminating Dialog Noise is next, and you'll learn how to tame pesky background noise from a vocal part, followed by in-depth tutorials on the classic art of Drum Gating.

Breath Reduction, Transient Enhancement, and Gated Reverb are then all explored using a variety of different Gate plug-ins, followed by creative videos on using a gate, such as how to lock the timing together between two tracks, creative sidechaining to chop up sustained sounds into staccato rhythms, and Gate Control to separate loud and quiet notes for independent processing.

See the individual tutorial descriptions for more info. If you're a producer of mixer, Gating is an essential tool in your processing toolbox. Learn how to wield this powerful sonic weapon and make tracks cleaner and more interesting... Watch "Gating Explained" today.

Simplifies gating and opens up possibilities

A great video series that covers a lot of ground but in a very simple and short way. It was a great to see Eli use different gate products from different plugin providers, which makes it easier to relate to.

Gating without Grating. Good, concise course made interesting by Mr. Krantzberg.

As always, Eli Krantzberg is very thorough and makes the course (which certainly has the potential of being a bit dry) interesting and engaging with real examples instead of just rote regurgitation of how to twist the dials and tweak plugin controls that you can read in any user manual if you can stay awake that long. And again as always, he really knows his stuff. Watch and understand this course and you can dive into gating for effects without spending money on expensive LFO manipulating plugins. You can do it all with the tools built into your DAW.
