BOZ DIGITAL Gatey Watey Frequency selective gating plug-in

Really? A gate plugin?
Let’s just be honest here for a minute. It’s really hard to get excited about a gate plugin. Part of the reason I have a hard time getting excited about gates is because they all pretty much seem to do the same thing, with some minor differences between different gates. But that’s why we made Gatey Watey. It stems from the idea that gates, even as a utility, can be much better.
What Sets Gatey Watey Apart from the Zillions of Gates Out There?
Gatey Watey has one feature that we believe every gate should have; frequency selective attenuation. What this means, is that you can tell Gatey Watey to only attenuate the high frequencies (or the low frequencies, if you’re into that sort of thing) when the input drops below the threshold. This turns out to be super powerful when it comes to gating drums, electric guitars, or pretty much anything that requires a gate. For example, if you want to cut the high hat bleed out of a snare without killing the ring of the snare, Gatey Watey is your man. Do you want your distorted guitars to ring out without without your neighbor’s fluorescent light collection blaring through your pickups? Gatey Watey to the rescue.
Even in normal gating situations, Gatey Watey excels. You just tell it what to turn down, and how much to turn it down.
Simple to Use
We packaged Gatey Watey in a way that makes it dead simple to use. It does its thing, and it does it well. Anybody of any skill level will be able to open up Gatey Watey for the first time and immediately see what’s going on.

Very nice! I also love the lookahead feature! However I am missing a second release for the “remaining” signal when in high pass or low pass mode. That would be absolutely killer!

This is one GREAT Gate! Removes the bad stuff, like low frequency rumble, without breathing, cutting out word tails and so on. I use it as a noise reduction unit for Voice Over recording and have found it’s the best, most transparent way to get rid of LA sound buildup (traffic, UPS and garbage trucks) without compromising the sound. Very Well done and highly recommended!

Gatey Watey is extremely useful and inexpensive to boot.
It also sports one of the best GUIs I’ve ever seen on a VST. (Imperial Delay is another one of my favorite GUIs, although I don’t own that one yet.)

Love the gate, but having a problem where every time I open a session with the plugin engaged I have to re-enter my username and serial number, any knowledge of why this might be happening and how to fix it?

I wish this plugin had a sidechain input.

Amazing on removing hihat bleed from the snare. Works really well for Nolly’s trick shown in his session from Nail The Mix.
