Plugin Boutique has launched an introductory sale on FG-Stress, a digital replication of one of the industry’s most highly coveted analog compressors, the Empirical Labs Distressor.

Slate Digital spent two years of development to deliver a plugin that precisely matches the hardware.

Every aspect of the Distressor has been modeled, which is no simple task due to the Distressor’s unique topology where every ratio is essentially a different compressor!

Like the hardware in which it models, the FG-Stress can mimic the tone of some of the industry’s most famous compressors like punchy VCAs, fat tube compressors, and even vintage opto units.

FG-Stress features

  • All eight unique ratios including 10:1 Opto.
  • Detector options to customise compression tone.
  • Audio path options to add colour and warmth.
  • Variable attack and release.

FG-Stress is available for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3/AU/AAX) at an introductory discount until October 1st, 2017.
