Slate Digital VBC Virtual Buss Compressors

The Slate Digital Virtual Buss Compressors comprises of three analogue modelled compressors developed by Steven Slate.


The Slate Digital Virtual Buss Compressors is the culmination in years of research and high-quality modelled technology. To achieve outstanding sonics, Slate Digital has painstakingly modelled all the non-linear characteristics of each components to create three very different sounding plug-ins perfect for any stem and mixbuss.


The first emulation, the FG Grey is a modern processor designed to provide musical, transparent compression, based on the classic British 4000 console mixbuss compressor.  A slight modification on the virtual model sees the characteristics of British discrete transformer added to retain more bass and midrange when compressing heavily. Although designed for masterbuss applications the FG Grey is also amazing on drums and guitars.


The second emulation is inspired by a classic Red faced compressor described as punchy, fat, tight and rich sounding. The FG Red recreated all those features and more adding a Drive control to add distort the virtual output transformer adding attitude and life to the mix.


Finally the FG MU is a recreation of classic Vari-Mu compressors lauded for their ability to thicken the midrange, tighten up the low frequencies and tame harsh upper mids, offering a deep, fat and warm sound full of rich and musical character. The FG MU has a M/S mode which allows to compress the mid and side differently, ideal for mastering in the box.


Each processor can be used on individually or as part of the VBC rack which lets you use all three compressors at once. Each processor in the rack can be rearranged easily by dragging and dropping and features a variable high-pass filter and mix control for parallel processing.
