dbx Gate Clamps Down on Noise!

Clamp down on noise with the dbx 1074 QuadGate. Four channels of gating, each with independent threshold, depth, and release controls, make eliminating unwanted sounds a piece of cake. The 1074's flexible internal filter can be activated and managed on a per-channel basis. This filter also provides you with selectable frequencies for precise control over your gating. Craft super-tight rhythms, by means of an external sidechain on each channel. Achieve true stereo gating with the 1074's Stereo Couple switch. Based on dbx's legendary VCA technology, the dbx 1074 QuadGate is an essential piece of gear.

Independent sidechain and selectable frequencies yield a ton of flexibility

The dbx 1074 QuadGate's sidechain input allows you to trigger it with an external signal. Use one track to gate another to create a compelling pulsating effect. Tighten up your bass synth by gating it and triggering it with a kick drum. You can also achieve the legendary "gated snare" effect with the 1074 by sending your dry snare signal to your favorite reverb processor, inserting the 1074 into the reverb's output signal, then connecting the snare signal into the 1074's sidechain input. You can also achieve complete control over when the gate is triggered with the Filter control, which allows you to select any frequency between 80Hz and 8kHz.

DBX 1074 4CH Noise Gate

I bought the DBX 1074 to gate individual drums in my home studio. The absence of sound being recorded is a great and wonderful thing. My drums cleaned up tremendously after gating my 3 toms and high hat. The frequency filter is just what you need to weed out high volume hits from the snare and worked perfectly on the HH. It takes a couple of minutes to get all the setting right, but man what a difference. Quite, Powerful tool.
