Gated reverb was a big feature of music (particularly drums) in the 1980s. people like Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel used it a lot. Its still quite cool now if used subtly.
As I mentioned in my last post, I've been exploring Ableton live. Here is another miniature I've composed which includes gated reverb.
I have been learning the Ableton Live software over the summer. Its interesting and a bit different from Logic or Protools (the packages I otherwise use) in that it has great synchronising and live performance features.
However I'm still trying to decide if its better that Logic for composing. I do like some of the sounds though and it also has Max Msp integration.
Anyway, here is a miniature that I did on the programme.
