: Can anyone give me some step by step info on how to create a gate effect w/ my QS 6.1

: I'm looking for a quick "in/out" or "on/off" type of effect for Voice/Choir/Strings etc. I've heard itin some trance/dreamhouse and although this isn't exactly my style of music, I think it's a pretty interesting effect and would like to play around with it some. I think I read somewhere that it's possible w/one of the MIDI controls, leaving the actual volume/gain control intact so it can still be adusted w/ pedal, etc.

: Sorry if I don't know how to exactly explain it, but perhaps you know what I'm looking for, and I'll definitely know it when I hear it.

: This would be my first adventure in editing a program/effect, so the baby step approach is definitely appreciated.

: Thanks, Michael

Two ways to get this type of effect. One is to cut release time in Amp envelope to 00, then adjust sustain level to desired cutoff of sound. But I think you want to try a gated reverb effect, in which case you enter effect edit mode by pressing edit button twice from program play mode. Select effect configuration 1- 1 reverb. Select Gate as reverb type. Page through reverb parameters and adjust them to your liking.Make sure send level is maxed for each voice in the program and wet/dry mix is 100% wet. This will give you the max desired effect.
