Slate Digital has launched a new plugin that recreates the exact tone of one of the industry’s most coveted discrete EQs.
The FG-A Vintage American Equalizer features classic proportional q curves and fat saturation.
Our development team took great care to recreate every single nuance of the hardware’s unique topology including its proportional curves and its very complex nonlinear behavior which is selectable via the “opamp” button. This button adds the discrete opamp and transformer emulations. Just like with the hardware, the analog color in this EQ occurs before AND after the EQ filters, and even in between two consecutive bands.
Furthermore, the nonlinear coloration is dynamically dependent on the settings, which is something that we found in the hardware but not in any other emulation of the hardware. Therefore, pros will likely hear something unique about the FG-A, even if they have similar plugins from other developers.
FG-A for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3/AU/AAX) is available now for $149 USD. The plugin is available to Everything Bundle members now.
