Requesting a feature for the Gating on StudioLive consoles:

Can the StudioLive consoles have frequency controlled gates using Low and High frequency filters.  Currently, the gates are triggered from a single frequency (with a large "Q").  Would be very useful to have control over the frequency width (the Q) when controlling the gates.  The controls would allow us how low (and how high) of a frequency to "listen" on before opening.  This functionality was used extensively with analog outboard; would be perfect if it could be implemented in the digital world.

Actually, the Gate and Compressor Q Width on the Key Filter is a narrow band, not wide.

What you are asking for is adjustable high and low pass filter option on the Gate and Comp sidechain. This is not the same as Key Filter.

You can certainly request it, but do note that changes to the DSP almost never happen so don't expect this on Series 3, but could definitely be an option on the next generation whenever that comes.
