Gate Release

Gate Release:

The gate release time determines the rate at which the gate closes. Release times should typically be set so that the natural decay of the instrument or vocal being gated is not affected. Shorter release times help to clean up the noise in a signal but my cause ‘chattering’ in percussive instruments. Longer release times usually eliminate ‘chattering’ and should be set by listening carefully for the most natural release of the signal.
