Slate Digital FG-X/VCC/VTM/VBC/VMR Plug-In Bundle Details

The Slate Digital FG-X/VCC/VTM/VBC/VMR Plug-In Bundle is quite the software package! It includes all of the current Slate Digital plug-ins: FG-X, VCC, VTM, VBC and VMR.

Steven Slate and expert algorithm engineer Fabrice Gabriel started working out the concept for a digital audio process that could increase the level of a mix without altering the punch and dynamic feel, or make the mix sound squashed and lifeless. They started by researching saturation curves and their effect on various types of transient material. After several months of study and hundreds of listening tests, they made some fascinating discoveries. What they found, was that in order to transparently add level to a mix, a dynamic and intelligent transient saturation system would have to be developed, and this became the FG-X.

New ADVANCED ALGORITHMS were created to execute the extremely complex communication system that would be needed to properly perform the new dynamic operations. A new algorithm was formed, and the process was named "Intelligent Transient Preservation", or ITP.

The Slate Digital Virtual Console Collection V2 Plug-In Bundle brings the sound of 5 of the world's top analog consoles (including the new RC-Tube model) into your DAW workstation. "Slate Digital CTO Fabrice Gabriel and I studied these consoles inside and out. We meticulously modeled the entire circuit path so that we could recreate every subtle nuance that makes these consoles the legends that they are", says Slate.

The Virtual Console Collection V2 consists of two plugins, Virtual Channel and Virtual Mixbuss. Each plugin allows the user to choose from one of six modeled consoles. Virtual Channel is applied on individual mixing channels. Virtual Mixbuss goes on the first insert of the master fader. "When using the Virtual Console Collection, your DAW instantly takes on the personality of a real analog mixing desk. The imaging and depth improves, instruments sit better in the frequency spectrum, and mixing becomes easier and more musical. You can even push the DAW faders up to find each mixer's "sweet spot", says Slate.

The Slate Digital Virtual Tape Machines Plug-In authentically captures the sound of two classic tape decks including a 2 inch 16 track deck from NRG RECORDING, as well as the 1/2" 2 track mastering deck used by mastering engineer Howie Weinberg. The Slate Digital development team led by algorithm engineer Fabrice Gabriel spent over a year researching the exact science of how tape machines create their classic sound, and every nuance is recreated with advanced digital modeling techniques. Using the 'VTM', your tracks and mixes will instantly take on the classic warm, rich, fat, deep sound of analog recordings.

Digital recording is now the standard for professional music production. But many engineers and musicians long for the days of analog recording, and for good reason. Analog Tape Machines have a SOUND. Big, fat, warm, deep, rich, and exciting are just some of the terms used to describe what recording onto a piece of magnetic tape sounds like. Most of all, tape is more musical.

To capture the sound of tape is to capture a living, breathing sound that dynamically reacts to the music going on to it. Slate Digital Chief Technology Officer Fabrice Gabriel utilized his electrical engineering degree as a foundation for his comprehensive study of the physical processes that occur when recording to analog tape through a tape machine. What began with science led to Fabrice"?s discovery of the seemingly magical properties of tape and inspired him to create his most advanced, dynamic algorithms yet. Two industry-standard machines were precisely modeled. What followed was a year of critical listening and algorithm tweaking, with some help from the expert ears of Slate Digital CEO, Steven Slate.

The result is the Virtual Tape Machines plugin. With models of both a 2 inch 16 track from NRG Recording, and a ½ inch 2 track machine from Howie Weinberg Mastering, the VTM will give your mixes an absolutely authentic analog vibe that will take your mixes to the next level. With added dimension, fatness, depth, and warmth, you"?ll wonder how you ever mixed without it!

The Slate Digital Virtual Buss Compressors Plug-In comprises three unique sounding, 100% analog modeled dynamic processors that are ideal for program material including full mixes, mastering, drums, group mixes, and more. Every nuance of real analog compressors has been modeled; including the exact nonlinear characteristics of their transformers, tubes, VCAs, amplifiers, phase distortions, harmonic distortions, and timing.

All of the compressors in the VBC bundle have a variable hi-pass filter AND a mix knob that can be used to control the ratio/percentage of the compressed signal to the dry signal. Each compressor can be used in series, and the series rearranged by dragging and dropping (see information on "?The Rack"). Compressing a mix with each one doing a very little amount can sound amazing! And, using the compressors in series within the "?Rack"? also makes it very easy to A/B/C the compressors on source material. Finally, VBC will come with stock presets made by some of the industry's top mixers.
