In this QuickTip video, Rich Tozzoli shows how he uses the Sonnox Envolution plug-in as a natural sounding gate by using the Sustain controls.
The Sonnox Oxford Envolution plug-in a frequency-dependent envelope shaping plug-in to radically modify the sound of individual tracks, buses and even master outputs.
Sonnox say: "Envolution boasts comprehensive and independent control of transients and sustain, with ‘Tilt’ or ‘Focus’ controls to choose where in the frequency spectrum the effect is applied. This allows complete manipulation of the audio’s envelope to produce creative and even extreme results. Transients can be boosted to add presence and punch, or reduced to create perspective; while the sustain section can easily make the ambience around a recording bloom, or can be cut back for quick and precise gating".
Envolution is available in Native format for Pro Tools AAX Native and also Audio Units and VST - at a retail price of £170 (ex VAT), and for Pro Tools HD users in AAX DSP format at a retail of £275 (ex VAT).
