    An excerpt from the Mixing Audio: Concepts, Practices and Tools by Roey Izhaki, available here.———————— Following compressors, gates are perhaps the second most common dynamic range processors in mixing. Gates are also called noise-gates – a name that implies their traditional usage as noise eliminators. In the past, tapes and analog equipment were the main contributors to added hiss. Nowadays, digital technology tends to allow much cleaner recordings. Still, in project studios unwanted noise on a recording might be the… View this post
