T-Force Trance Gate 2 from Mastrcode Music is a “envelope controlled rhythmic gate effect”
“T-Force Trance Gate 2 is an envelope controlled rhythmic gate effect to chop an incoming audio signal like e.g. a pad sound into a rhythmic sequence. This kind of effect was used a lot in old classic trance tunes which also gave this effect its name. In early days of trance music this effect was realized by using a noise gate device. The rhythmic sequence was done by using e.g. a hihat sequence which was routed to the sidechain input of the noise gate. The T-Force Trance Gate 2 uses an internal step sequencer instead, to make the workflow easier to create this effect. It also can be switched to a sidechain mode, to use it the “classical” way by using an external audio signal as a sidechain input. The Trance Gate 2 also has a multimode filter. The effect is fully controlled by an amp envelope and a filter/resonance envelope. With all these features it’s even possible to turn your favorite pad sound into an arp-like sequence.
Effect device for using as insert effect or send effect

Stereo sidechain input (L/R)
Step sequencer with up to 32 steps
Adjustable tempo with bpm host sync
Multimode filter with 13 different filter types, with controls for cutoff, resonance, cutoff envelope amount and resonance envelope amount
1 ADSR amp envelope with on/off function
1 ADSR filter cutoff envelope with on/off function
1 ADSR resonance envelope with on/off function
2 trigger modes: sequencer mode – uses the internal step sequencer to trigger all ADSR envelopes. sidechain mode – uses the stereo sidechain inputs to trigger all ADSR envelopes with an incoming audio signal by a given threshold, attack and release value (e.g. a hihat loop)
All controls are fully automatable
Available as 32 bit VST2 and 64 bit VST2/64 bit VST3
How to install: instructions how to install this plugin are included in the zip file.
Info: the VST2 version of the plugin also uses the VST3 preset system (.vst3preset), to make the presets cross-compatible. For more infos please read the “Read me first!” text file included in the zip file.
Please note: supports Windows 7 and higher only, because the plugin uses a new graphics API – all graphics now will be rendered with your graphic card’s GPU instead of the CPU. Windows XP doesn’t support the new graphics API. No Mac support, because some 3rd party code modules are used inside the plugin which are just available for Windows. If the developers of these code modules make them available for Mac, i will also add a Mac AU version in future.
You might need to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2015/2017 Redistributable”
