FabFilter has updated the Pro-G gate/expander plug-in to version 1.01, adding a much requested ‘ducking’ style and various bug fixes and small improvements.
Originally released in May 2011, FabFilter Pro-G is a top-quality gate/expander plug-in with flexible side chain routing options and a streamlined, well-designed user interface. Equipped with linear-phase oversampling, mid/side processing and precise metering, Pro-G is an indispensable addition to any mixing and mastering tool kit.
Changes in Pro-G v1.01
- Added new ‘Ducking’ style, implementing inverted gate/expander behavior. A typical application of ducking is to automatically lower the level of a musical background track when a voice-over starts, and to bring the level up again when the voice-over stops (in movies and on radio broadcasts). Ducking can also be used to achieve the well-known and very popular ‘pumping’ effect, much used in modern dance music.
- Improved keyboard handling on Windows, fixing the “space key stealing” problem in Studio One and FL Studio.
- Improved mouse handling behavior in Pro Tools when Cmd+Ctrl / Ctrl+Win -clicking a control to show the automation timeline.
- Fixed crash in MOTU Digital Performer with the mono version of Pro-G.
FabFilter Pro-G for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) is available to purchase for 129 EUR / $174 USD / 114 GBP. The FabFilter Pro-G 1.01 update is available now.
