I’ve been spending some time recently to find good free gate and vocoder effect plug-ins. There are a few promising out there for instance reagate (-> http://www.kvraudio.com/get/2669.html).
This reagate is an good example for a multi-input effect plug-in, in that it allows you to switch from “main” to “auxiliary” input for the gate control signal. This auxiliary input is like equivalent to cubase side-chain input I guess (see the cubase gate).
But I have not been able to connect anything to this auxiliary input, because it doesn’t show up as for instance the send effects or the activated side-chains do. Btw do I have to say it’s Cubase 6.0.2?
Can anyone help me, probably it’s just rtfm (in that case just point me to the right page in the manual) or probably I’d better use real cubase-enabled/side-chaining vst3 plugins for gate and vocoder (if you could point me to those plug-ins…)
Thanx in advance + Cheers
