Slate Digital FG-X

You want your masters to sound louder — of course! Today’s “loudness wars,” squash out all the dynamics, make the tracks sound harsh. In fact, they wear out the listener’s ears. That’s why you need Slate Digital’s FG-X. This plug-in bundle takes advantage of breakthrough DSP techniques to get your tracks pumping, without causing that lifeless, overly compressed sound. Using “Intelligent Transient Preservation” technology, Slate Digital’s FG-X looks ahead at your mix and optimizes its response based on the transient coming up — it’s not some one-size-fits-all compressor, it’s custom-tailored to make your mix sound its best.

Slate Digital’s FG-X includes the FG Level maximization plug-in and the FG Dynamics compression plug-in. With Level, you can use the Transient knobs to fine-tune your mix transients. Use the “Launch” parameter to transparently increase your tracks punch and dynamics, without unbalancing the mix. The Detail feature helps you add more clarity and focus – ideal for your buried kick or snare sounds. And after the Slate Digital Gain maximizer, you’ll want to use the dynamic perception parameter to make your final master sound totally open and punchy. Last up, you can use the “ITP” slider to prevent unwanted distortions or crackles, so you won’t get weird artifacts in your masters because a mix has small bursts of low-frequency energy here and there.

What about the FG Dynamics compressor? Slate Digital recognizes that most top-level mastering engineers use very little compression, if any at all. They know that the mix engineer worked hard to get the right color across the mix, so why alter it? Instead, FG Dynamics aims to maintain that quality, offering up incredibly transparent compression that gives you just the right oomph.

When you’re ready to end the loudness wars and bring real-deal mixes to the table, while maintaining the dynamics and musicality today’s music has been lacking, you’ll know you’re ready for Slate Digital’s FG-X.
