Hi everyone, i am wondering if there's any way to sidechain a gate plugin with ardour of if there's a sidechain gate plugin already available.

Now to explain what i want it for in case this helps:
I want to side chain a gate for the Kick track so i can duplicate the Kick track, take it a few miliseconds back and make the gate in the main kick track take all the natural attack of the kick without getting that "click" of the gate opening when using too short attack.

Any workaround on this?

thanks in advance.

A gate with lookahead would do what you want, at the expense of increased latency. It shouldn't be particularly hard to write one, but I can't see any that already exist.

a sidechained gate could be usefull even for other tricks, for example, some use that plugins to "trigger" the kick by using a low frequency sinusoid gated by the kick transient.
it could be a good tool.. hope someone could have the idea and the time to do that.

@lore: yes i actually saw a producer i know triggering a kick to the drums on my band using the kick recorded (he did it because the drummer was hitting the bass drum too soft and he didn't like the sound comming out) in any case it is useful, i opened the thread because i thought maybe there was a solution for that already.

@fernesto: the lookahead gate would be the most suitable tool for your issues, as matt said. but for what i know, there is no such LADSPA or LV2 plugin yet.
