Slate Digital FG-X Mastering Processor is a mastering multi-processor plug-in designed to increase the level of your final mix without sacrificing its dynamic feel and punch.
Slate Digital FG-X uses advanced algorithms designed to dynamically and intelligently saturate transients. This process called Intelligent Transient Preservation or ITP, is capable of detecting the nature of the transient (Kick drum, snare drum, etc..) and apply the right saturation curve focusing on the frequency spectrum of the transient played. As a result, the FG-X is capable of increasing the level substantially with no artefacts and remaining extremely transparent.
The Slate Digital FG-X comprises 2 different processors, the FG Comp compressor, and the FG Level. The FG Comp is a very transparent mastering compressor designed to control the dynamics of the mix in the most subtle way and without any colouration whatsoever. The FG Level is where all the ITP and provides all the controls necessary to achieve this. The Transient functions lets you fine tune the transient response. Use the Lo Punch knob to transparently increase the level of your low end energy in the mix while the Detail function gives further clarity and focus to the mix. In addition, the FG Level features a Dynamic Perception control which gives the ITP its over sonic character. From smooth to hard, this slider will help in shaping the sound further with great precision.
The Slate Digital FG-X Mastering Processor will help you achieve some of the best results in terms of loudness and transparency.
