Description

Slate Digital FG-2A Compressor has re-created what is arguably considered the most famous opto compressor of all time. Every peak, curve, and nuance of the original hardware was modeled, providing you with warm, saturated textures that are guaranteed to impress. This plug-in includes familiar Peak Reduction and Gain knobs, along with a true-to-the original Limit/Compress switch and HF/Flat sidechain pre-emphasis control. You also get Stereo Link operation and a Mix knob for dead-simple parallel processing. A responsive analog-style gain reduction meter rounds out the FG-2A’s features. If you’re craving vintage dynamic control with a tried-and-true classic sound, Slate’s FG-2A is begging for a place inside of your plug-in folder.

Vintage opto compressors contained T4 optical attenuators, which were largely responsible for their unmistakable saturation characteristics and unique release behavior. For the FG-2A, Slate spent more than a year measuring and analyzing the original hardware units to ensure that every peak, curve, and sonic nuance was modeled correctly. Slate didn’t just study a single unit, either. They listened to an entire stable of them until they found the one that captured the warmth and tone that epitomizes the ‘2A sound.

The Slate Digital FG-2A’s Peak Reduction and Gain knobs are throwbacks to the original hardware, enabling you to adjust your desired amount of dynamic leveling, along with your output level. A Limit/Compress switch toggles between a higher and lower compression ratio, letting you determine how aggressive you want your gain reduction. A HF/Flat sidechain pre-emphasis control defines how the FG-2A responds to higher frequencies. You’ll also benefit from effortless parallel compression, thanks to the Mix control. By dialing this control back, you can slam a track without over compressing it. You also get a Stereo Link switch — an essential if you plan to strap this compressor plug-in across a stereo track or bus.
