The Sony Dynamics gate is the best I've used but for drums ITB it is far easier and cleaner to just edit out any unwanted spill or accidental hits by hand. Make sure you're not throwing out the baby with the bathwater, some of that tom ring can really make the kit sound alive,

cheers,

Ditto on the Sony. I use it in pair with the expander, both at gentle settings.
If you are in PT, the digi gate ain't bad.

The floorfish is a great gate for drums and it's free

The Drawmer works well, and (IMHO) the gate in MH's CS is about the only thing usable in that plug.

FWIW- I never use plugs for gating/expansion. I prefer Strip Silence, or just edit by hand. Takes about the length of the song, and the "gates" open perfectly and never chatter or miss a soft hit...

YMMV

I actually like the built-in Nuendo gate, but Floorfish is a good call, as well.

The waves C1 in expander mode works actually very well. I sometimes use it on close snare or kick mics if heavy compression is necessary on these tracks.

Good luck,
Dirk

I was thinking of the same thing. Strip Silence should do the job.
