Included within the Slate Digital VMR are a host of exceptional plugins that cater to a wide range of audio processing needs. The FG-N is a digital recreation of one of the most classic discrete Class A British equalizers from the 70's. All aspects of the circuit are modeled, including the rich harmonics and saturations that naturally occur when the equalizer is in use. The original model only contained one mid band, so we thought it would be nice to double it so that it has two mid bands. This equalizer is lush, fat, and bold. It sounds great on everything from drums to vocals, and can even add the perfect saturation to synth and electronic tracks.
The FG-S is a digital recreation of one of the most famous British console equalizers from the 80's. This equalizer also has rich harmonics and interactive mid bands with a fat musical tone. This is the ultimate workhorse mix eq that can be used on any track. It is great for surgical cutting strokes, or wide bell and shelf strokes for making drums and guitars punch out of the speakers.
The FG-116 is the most precise digital replication of the classic American FET limiter. No expense was spared to capture every nuance of this classic sounding compressor/limiter. From its trademark timing characteristics to the extremely musical sound of its transformer, the FG-116 will give engineers the musical and fat tone that has made the hardware so famous. The FG-116 sounds great on everything like lead vocals, drums, and bass guitars.
The FG-401 started as a recreation of the classic British console channel compressor, but morphed into quite a lot more. First, they gave it variable attack and release with increased range which added more tonal options. Then, they added an optimal transformer input, and not just any transformer, the famous transformer from the British Class A Console! This adds a beautiful warmth and sheen to the compressor. Last, they added an entirely unique second circuit path that provides an additional smooth and rich tone. The FG-401 is perhaps the most versatile mix compressor in the world that can sound good on any source you feed into it!
The Slate Digital VMR isn't just about a collection of plugins; it's a comprehensive solution designed to streamline your mixing process. With a focus on usability, flexibility, and sonic excellence, the Slate Digital VMR empowers you to sculpt your mixes with precision and creativity.
