The Slate Digital Custom Series requires the Virtual Mix Rack to function as well as an iLok 2 or 3 dongle.


The Slate Digital FG-116 Blue Series is a collection of two FET compressor emulation plug-ins inspired by the legendary 1176 Rev A “Blue Face” providing rich, colourful and musical sound.

The Slate Digital FG-116 Blue Series includes the FG-116 Blue FET Vintage Compressor and the FG-116 Blue FET Modern Compressor. Both units feature the usual four ratio (4:1, 8:1, 12:1 and 20:1), attack and release controls, input and output levels found on the original but adds two circuit switches and high-pass filter side-chain.

The FG-116 Blue Vintage is the classic recreation of a vintage 1176 Rev A with the same mid forward tone and non-linear time constants that have made the original hardware it emulates so special on vocals, drums and bass. Two circuit modes are provided with Circuit 1 offering the sound of the original unit while Circuit 2 is based on a refurbished and updated unit. The latter mode provides a unique and musical sound with bigger low end and smoother midrange and high frequencies and is ideal for commanding presence and weight.

The FG-116 Blue Modern has all the same controls as the other but instead blends the old school tone with a new cleaned up output transformers and slower attack. In this version Circuit 1 has some of the forward sounding character of the original but with a much cleaner sound that will make a snare drum punch like nothing else. Circuit 2 has a more punchy low end and smoother response.
