Noise gate for controller data

July 30, 2012 | 12:13 pm

Hello, I’m looking for an effective way for a noise gate for controller data (i.e. a self made slider)
A very effective one seems to be in the eowave HF Software. There it says, the threshold reduces the bit depht of the signal.
Anyone an idea how to build or to find one?

[>] ?

Or what do you have already? Of course a low thresh / hi thresh system(à la [thresh~]) would be nicer than just [>] but again, what are you using right now?

I might have to explain: I mean not audio noise, I mean the controller data itself, which is always fluttering a bit between numbers.

yes i know, so do you want to rather smooth the data out then? (which is equivalent to lowpassfiltering rather than noise gating)

check this out :)

right now I’m using nothing except scaling, while I’m using the controller wired. But when I’m using it wireless I use the eobody HF which has a mac collective which has a filter (or noise gate how they call it). The result is much better than everything I tried. I want the slider data stay and nut bouncing i.e. between 55 and 56, while it stays in the same position.
But when I move the slider slowly while it’s on 55 I want be able to get 56. The link above might help me. I have to try out all the examples, thanks.
