Unlike other gates, Gatey Watey enables you to zero in on precisely the frequency range you want to attenuate without the hit-or-miss tweaking of complicated controls, yielding excellent results regardless of your skill level.

Instead of the wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff that traditional gates chatter on about, Gatey Watey lets you select the frequencies you want to attenuate for a smooth and natural sound. If you want to shorten cymbal tails without losing the resonance of the kit, quiet singing toms without choking them, or tame the fizz but keep the fuzz on distorted guitars, Gatey Watey will give you the closure you need to move on and mix. Gatey Watey is a forward-thinking, resource-friendly plug-in that not only eliminates the guesswork typical of complicated gates, but also the steep learning curve as well. Gatey Watey is how a gate should work, especially if you want to breeze through the tedious housekeeping processes of noise cleanup and track preparation and focus on creativity.

Gatey Watey - Cracking the Code
Gating is a key element for increasing dynamic range and bringing out the punch and focus of drums in a dense mix. And yes, gates come standard in all DAWs, but how often do you actually use them? And wouldn't you prefer a gate that works without all the histrionics (and hysteresis)? The real question is whether you want to focus on mixing, or spend hours cutting spaces between every snare, kick, and tom hit? And what if you have cymbal or hi-hat bleed you want to get rid of? That's near impossible to edit. Again, wouldn't you rather have a gate that does all that for you in a fraction of the time? Of course you would.

Gatey Watey controls
Gatey Watey has three mode buttons: high-pass, low pass, and normal gate operation (should you need it). Below these buttons is a frequency slider ranging from 20Hz to 12kHz, which lights red and blue above and below the slider position (and depending on which mode you select). Below the frequency slider are Range, which determines how many dB the gate will attenuate; Attack, which sets how quickly the gate will respond (0ms ? 200ms); Release, which determines how fast or slow the gate will close (25ms ? 500ms), and Lookahead, which ranges from 0ms to 50ms. The Threshold slider on Gatey Watey's left side also lights red and blue coinciding with the frequency slider and mode so you can see what's happening graphically. And finally, a bypass button lives on the right side of the GUI.

Why Gatey Watey when there are so many gates - even ones for free?
Gatey Watey has one feature that sets it apart and makes it a must-have for anyone who has struggled with gating: frequency-selective attenuation. To put it simply, when the input drops below the threshold Gatey Watey will attenuate only the high frequencies or only the low frequencies based on selected mode switch and your selected crossover point. That ability makes Gatey Watey extremely powerful when it comes to gating drums, electric guitars, or pretty much anything that requires a gate.

For example, if you want to cut the hi-hat bleed from a snare without killing the ring of the snare, better call Gatey Watey. Do you want your distorted guitars to ring out without electrical hum from fluorescent bulbs or neon lamps blaring through your pickups? Gatey Watey to the rescue. You can even use two instances of Gatey Watey if you'd like to gate specific high and low frequencies simultaneously. Even in normal gating situations, Gatey Watey excels. You just tell it what to turn down and how much to turn down and Gatey Watey takes it from there.
