Noise gate

From AudioLexic

Jump to: navigation, search

A device which increases dynamic range by reducing the soft portions of a signal. In contrast to an expander, this reduction is stronger and usually not even adjustable.

Noise gates are used to silence background noise, such as amplifier hum or air conditioner rumble, in the pauses of the desired signal.
