Suggestions For Analog Gate Unit
« on: April 24, 2012, 05:53:03 pm »

Looking for a decent quality analog gate unit (preferably) single space that would do a decent job on gating some toms.  I have seen some two space Rane G4's.  Going digital in the near future so price is a consideration point.

The Rane unit is not analog.  That said, it is a nice piece of gear.  Check your PM's.

the occasional aphex 105 quad gate pops up on the bay (i snagged one for $100 a couple years ago), and is pretty nice for club/bar world.

I use a pair of BSS DPR504's that I'm quite happy with.

+1 on a used Aphex 105 logic assisted quad gate if you see one pop up on ebay, I love mine. Other than that I think a used DBX 1074 quad gate would also make you happy.

ART made an 8-channel 2RU one a few years back that was really easy to use and sounded great.

Love my ProGate8.  You might also check out LA Audio MG-16 digital gates, in single RU package.  Not as easy to operate, but for basic gates it may do the trick for you.  Neither are analog, though.
