Built off of the hold function in Vectory by Tim Exile but modified to work as a gating effect. In this revision I fixed some bugs and made it much more flexible. Each pulse/gate has its own length, attack and release controls. The result is a fusion of a gate and tremolo effect. It also has a midi control out so that you route the effect to a filter cutoff on an external synth or use it how you see fit. Spacedrone is included to better demonstrate how to use it. Just press play. :)

This is really useful. If you make a future version could you add the ability to do triplets and other speed changes to the gate?

It does nothing for the audio gate, no. Basically the knob is there to transmit the gate as midi. I was trying to think of the simplest way for a user to be able to assign the gater to a control number of thier choice and the knob seemed to be the easiest way to do it. The thresholds control only the midi aspect of the instrument as demonstrated on the Midi knob. That way people can use the gate to rhythmically control filter cutoff, pitch etc etc... whatever they want.

do the Midi Ctr, Hi Thresh and Low Thresh do anything in terms of the gating? at the moment, i can't work out why they are there. anyway, nice gater!
