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 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/resonane 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 audio input (L/R).
  • Stereo sidechain input (L/R).
  • Bypass mode.
  • 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).
  • 2 LFO's.
  • Mod Matrix.
  • All controls are fully automatable.

The T-Force Trance Gate 2 is easy to pick up and has a nice amount of cool features; switching from Matrix to Main, you'll find ways to really enhance your sound. Unfortunately, it's buggy. In Reason 10 for Windows, the plug-in will be missing every other time you open the session; making it unpredictable. It's too bad because it great creative tool, especially for morphing your sound while you play. 3 Stars.

There is a serious problem with the compatability of this plugin and Reaper, every now and then the DAW will just crash either while trying to load the plugin or just trying to play the track. Otherwise, it's a good gate plugin that I'll have to stick with as I can't find another free one that even comes close.

Hmm.. I must say that I tried to create some main Uplifting Trance arpeggios and I wasn't really that impressed. I maybe still prefer creating those arpeggio notes manually, since I have way more options to play with. However, in some cases, and with some instruments, this could come really handy. I still have to play around this, it's kinda tricky to master.

Love it! Do you have any plans for a 64-bit version? Not working in the latest Cubase unless you use jBridge which I don't want to use.

Could be a nice Tool but seems not to be able to catch song speed (Sonar platinum current version 2015) and so it is not usable. Really sad as it seems to has exact that functionality I am searching for.

Nice comprehensive gater. Can take a little effort to get the sound right and can cause some unwanted clicking, but a great sound. Liking.

Great! really frees up your sound/fx palette. You can run poly synth chords through this!
