Slate Digital FG-X Mastering Plug-In
FG-X Mastering Processor
The final mastering stage is one of the most important when mixing, it can make or break a recording. Slate Digital’s FG-X Mastering Plug-In has achieved award-winning status thanks to its ultra-transparent compressor, industry coveted loudness enhancer and comprehensive metering panel. FG-X can make your mixes louder without having to settle on the dynamics, loss of punch, or skewing your mix balances.
Intelligent Transient Preservation
The FG-Level Loudness enhancer module uses a proprietary process called “Intelligent Transient Preservation” (ITP). This process looks ahead at your mix peaks and optimizes a custom saturation curve that best preserves its characteristics. For example, if it sees a kick drum, it will create a saturation curve that best preserves low-end energy. If it sees a snare drum, it will saturate it with a curve that best retains midrange punch. Overall, the ITP will keep your mixes punchy and dynamic while making them competitively loud.
Dynamic Perception is a process that simulates more dynamics in your mix, which can be helpful in the loudness process as dynamics are reduced. It’s a very powerful control that can really help retain the original dynamics of your mix, even adding a bit more.
Lo Punch and Detail
Lo Punch can raise the level of the low-end punch of the mix (like the kick drum level, for example) while Detail will raise the level of the high-end punch (such as a snare drum). These controls are intended to be used to customize the amount of transient articulation in the final master.
The FG-Comp is a world-class mastering compressor and leveller, it’s capable of extremely transparent compression that is unrivalled in the digital and analogue domains.
