This week here at Sonic Academy we welcome back Noah Koroman aka 2Scoops to check out Infected Mushroom’s volume modulation plugin in How To Use Gatekeeper.
Gatekeeper is the cutting edge of volume modulation. Capable of sample-fast transitions and equipped with a unique variable smoothing algorithm, Gatekeeper allows for drastic, punchy gating and sequencing while keeping the output smooth.
In this two-part tutorial 2Scoops firstly looks at the user interface and controls before showing us how he would use the plugin for his own tracks.
Loaded with some awesome presets, Gatekeeper is definitely one of those plugins were messing around with the various parameters and their combinations can give you some truly unexpected and creative results.
Not much of a tutorial here! Gatekeeper has a lot of features, most of which are not obvious. I didn’t learn anything more from watching this than I did within the first 15 minutes of me buying and thumbing thru the presets on my own. I’m not a hater, just feel like this is worthy of an actual, in depth course/tutorial.
Yep, I get your point, I bought the plugin some time after watching the tutorial and there’s definitely a lot to cover in terms of features and setting it up, it can be a very powerful tool indeed. But yeah, that course was part of the “How to use” videos series which only covers the basics.
