Gate/Stutter/Filter/Distortion effect NovaKill KillerGate+

Free Download Novakill KillerGATE+

VST of the Day for today comes to you from Novakill, and is a Gate with filter module and distortion multi-effect. The Gate effect is synced to the BPM of the VST host, making it useful for beatmaking or stutter-type effects. There are a variety of presets available, including a basic Trance Gate setting which is a very popular effect in modern music.

One great feature of this VST is the LFO sync to BPM. This allows you to have a more precise and easy to use LFO than a time variable filter alone. The changes will be more intuitive, and lock to any BPM changes made in your track. Can definitely be a time saver, if you are the type of person who enjoys changing BPM while working on a track. This can be a fun trick, by the way, if you think your tune is lacking a bit of toe tapping movement, try pushing the BPM up. If it’s too cluttered, slow it down. Your mileage may vary, of course, but in many cases it is worth a try, and is easy to reverse if it sounds “wrong”.

Another cool feature on this VST I am a fan of is the “Wet/Dry” slider in the I/O section. Wet/Dry sliders allow you to fine tune the amount of an effect in a specific channel or track. This ends up being about the same as using the “Insert” channels on a Digital Audio Workstation or a hardware mixing console. However, even if you have one of those available, it is a nice convenience settings to have right on the VST effect.
