Best answer
The gate threshold sets the level at which the gate opens. Essentially, all signals above the threshold setting are passed through unaffected, whereas signals below the threshold setting are reduced in level by the amount set by the range control. If the threshold is set fully counter-clockwise, the gate is turned off (always open), allowing all signals to pass through unaffected.
