Does anyone know of any noise gate software programs? I'm starting to get into Let's Plays and I'm picking up quite a bit of background noise, even after trying to minimize it. My room is not ideal, but it's what I have for the time being. I'm using an MXL 990 and so far my only solution is to record gameplay footage first, and then record audio over that, then filter out noise that way, but I would like to occasionally record both the footage and commentary at the same time.

I haven't tried it, but this looks like something you could use.

Not sure what kind of DAW you use but look into the Waves Plugins on sale. They have a few really good noise suppressors.

I agree that pro tools is a little bit complicated and in my opinion overpriced. i personally use reaper which actually has more midi capabilities than pro tools. DAW choice is really all preference though whatever makes you feel most comfortable as a producer

Im not knocking reaper but Pro Tools does about 1000000 times more for recording/mixing/postproduction/etc than reaper. Not to mention any major studio is going to be running it and recording sessions in it.

Generally speaking noise gates should not be used with too restrictive setting when recording vocals or speech, because they tend to cut off the quieter sounds and make the recording sound unrealistic. Sometimes a combination of noise gates and the noise reduction feature (like you find in Audacity) works best (at leat for me).

I am using Ardour, a MIDI-Keyboard (old YAMAHA), a Fender Mustang I for picking up the guitar signal and a AudioTechnica AT2020 USB+ for speech and vocals.
