We haven’t used any gates for years. Maybe lucky or with our analog setup we didn’t have them easily available.

But I agree – minimal gating, otherwise it can become more noticeable then the problem you are trying to solve.

Only thing with a lot of gates turning on/off is the change in the system. A few gates on drums and noisy guitars is not so bad but when you get a lot of front mics popping on/off the character of what is coming out of the speakers can get a bit whacky. I would for sure want fast attacks and slow releases so as not to be noticeable.. In many years of doing this I have never gated anything but toms and guitars.
