Airwindows is one guy: me! I am an audio hacker and computer programmer from way back. I seek only to continue my life up here in Vermont, inventing things and putting them onto the internet, sometimes for free and sometimes for pay. My hope is that people richer than me (i.e. most people) don't rob me. My other hope is for another cup of Aeropress. One out of two ain't bad!

noise gate


DigitalBlack2 is meant to be the ultimate gate for djent or anything staccato. It can be set up to be ridiculously fast and articulate, with separately settable attack and release thresholds. The reason you can have an ‘on’ threshold lower than the ‘off’ (or ‘gate’) point is, it runs internal timing like DigitalBlack anyway, so you […]


DigitalBlack is something special from Airwindows: a variable-attack gate. It’s free. Here’s how it works. When signal is going through above the threshold, a special sensor’s being triggered. It’s keeping track of the longest wavelengths of signal, and that determines the ‘crest factor’ over the gate. When signal drops, the gate waits for that crest factor […]


Gate is a simple little utility plugin from early Airwindows. It’s the first Airwindows gate to use a technique from Density, where the gate transitions to silence through a ‘negative saturation’ stage. This causes sounds hit by the gate to sound like they’re pulling back spatially as well as going silent, something that is still unique […]

If you’re pledging the equivalent of this per year, I’ll happily link you on the sidebar, including a link to your music or project! Quite a few people see this page, and they see it while they’re getting free stuff, so they ought to be favorably disposed to anyone here!
