noise gate plugins for rhythmic/glitching effects
Something I've only done once in Logic but always wanted to explore is the creative use of noise gates. Some industrial style metal uses it (gating the guitar to a kick, for a very precise and surgically chopped rhythm, etc) and electronic and other styles as well.
My approach wants to be more subtle -- I want to have a drone or ambient pad and gate it to a track for some sublet movement. Since I'm already creating the beat in BM3, I thought it would be cool to import the sample and gate it directly in Beatmaker... but I don't see an option for any kind of noise gate fx (maybe some kind of compressor/sidechain thing could be done, but I don't know if BM's comp can do SCing and I barely know Beatmaker's UI as it is! )
Would be a minor hassle to export the beat into Logic, kind of defeating the purpose of moving the bulk of my sketching/demoing on the iPad... if I have to export into Logic, I might as well just cook up a simple beat on my Mac and do it there.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
