[PD] is this a spectral gate?

Hello lllist,

I am still pretty new at FFT things but I am having a lot of fun.  I know
Tom Erbe's soundhack has something called a "spectral gate" so I thought I'd
give it a shot and try to make my own in Pd after reading about it.  Doesn't
sound all that great, it actually ends up sounding like a really low quality
wma file or something :)

Is this technically a spectral gate?  I'm using [>~] from zexy which in my
mind says, "Look at all of the frequencies in the block and only allow those
which are above value x to pass through."  I've attached the patch here -
any info or guidance is much appreciated.  Any sound that goes through it
pretty much loses all definition and clarity - is there a fix for this?
