The Virtual Mix Rack continues the Slate Digital tradition of providing the absolute most authentically modeled analog sound in a digital audio plugin. The VMR includes four world class mix modules, including two classic equalizers and two versatile mix compressors.

Imagine having a customizable virtual rack of the most authentic mix processors all on the screen in front of you.  You'll have the power to mix faster, more efficiently, and with the analog modeled sound that you've come to expect from Slate Digital.


The Modules

FG-N EQ:  This gorgeous sounding equalizer is modeled after one of the most classic British designs in the history of production.  And we've modeled every little nuance of it!  It's amazing how even with normal use, there is a beautiful saturation in the filters, as well as subtle harmonics that give it a unique character. You can use the line input to drive it all the way to a fat distortion.  The EQ's circuit path has sweet tone without even moving the filter knobs!  This classic processor sounds amazing on EVERYTHING! Also stay tuned for the preamp emulation of the FG-N that will be used with our upcoming Virtual Microphone System hardware!

FG-S EQ:  This classic equalizer is modeled off of the famous mixing desk EQ, and it is the ultimate workhorse. Again, we found that this EQ adds little bits of harmonics that help shape the mid bands and gives them an aggressive sound on drums, bass, and guitars when boosted heavily.  The hi-pass filter allows you to remove the low end 'gunk' from your tracks, without affecting the rest of the frequencies. It's an amazing EQ with all the quality and tone of the classic mix desk it was modeled after.

FG-401 Compressor:  This compressor is a hybrid of some of the most popular VCA channel compressors that are used in modern audio.  It has the ability to be quite the chameleon by offering TWO unique sounding circuit paths, and by enabling its ultra deep and fat sounding transformer. It sounds good on everything you can put it through and will ooze analog goodness.  It'll also have a ton of presets to get you started.

FG-116 Compressor:  "This was the most difficult compressor I've ever modeled" said Slate CTO Fabrice Gabriel.  The FG-116 is a dead on recreation of the classic American FET compressor.  No expense was spared to recreate every, and we really mean EVERY, little nuance that makes this compressor so special.  This classic compressor is amazing on everything and is certainly a favorite on lead vocals and drums.

And in typical Slate fashion, we'll put our audio where our marketing is and prove the authenticity of each unit by doing lots of hardware vs software comparisons!  The reason the VMR has taken so long is because we will only release this product when it is indistinguishable from the originals. And we are proud to say that this has happened, so we're wrapping up the final programming and expect a release within the next few weeks.


Other Information:

- VMR Modules are highly CPU efficient. You can run TONS of them on your native machine without the need for any additional DSP hardware.

 - VMR Modules have no latency in their processing, thanks to new internal 64bit processing and proprietary oversampling techniques.  This means that you can track through them with your DAW on low buffer with only 1.5ms roundtrip latency.  No third party application needed for tracking with plugins!

- We've got LOTS of new VMR modules in store.  And here is our promise: They will sound awesome, help you make great sounding music, and be AFFORDABLE.  Like.. very affordable.  Just because you want to use great mix processors doesn't mean you have to go broke.  To get four analog modeled processors from our competitors would cost you $1200!!!

The VIRTUAL MIX RACK continues the Slate Digital tradition of providing the absolute most authentically modeled analog sound in a digital audio plugin.

The ‘VMR’ includes four world class mix modules, including two classic equalizers and two versatile mix compressors, with more modules to be developed.

The ‘VMR’ operates as a Virtual 500 series rack with hot-swappable modules, putting your whole processing chain in ONE WINDOW. This allows you customize your own channel strip, with signal flow following the modules, in any order you choose. Mix and match filters from different EQs. Chain an EQ before or after your compressor. Moving modules around is easy, fast, and creates no break in audio playback. Audition signal chains faster, easier, and in real time with the Slate ‘VMR’. 

Unlike so many ‘analog modeled’ equalizer plugins and compressors that simply recreate analog equalization and compression curves, the VMR models every nuance of the circuit paths and recreates all of the essential harmonics, saturations, phase, and interactivity that give the units their trademark tone.

The VMR plugin is also modular, and new processors will be added in the future which will further enhance its powerful functionality.
