Slate Digital FG-116 Blue Series FET Compressors - Pro Audio Software for Analog-Style Compression (Download)
Key Features
  • Blue Series 1176 Compressor Emulation
  • Analog Compression with Digital Features
  • Modern & Vintage Modules
  • 2 Circuit Paths in Each Module
Available for download, the Slate Digital FG-116 Blue emulates two famed, vintage FET compressors. Both modules model 1176-style leveling amplifiers, specifically the Blue series of these renowned dynamic processors. Both are suitable for bass guitar, percussion, vocals, guitars, and more.

You'll find the usual 76 controls: input and output knobs as well as attack and release parameters. For each compressor, you can select among four ratios: 4:1, 8:1, 12:1, and 20:1. There is no threshold parameter. Note that the popular all-buttons-in sound is not available in these emulations. For that sound, Slate fashioned a different, dedicated emulation.

These compressors boast distinguishing features not found in comparable plug-ins or even in the original hardware. A mix knob is on hand to dial-in dry, uncompressed signal into the mix. This simplifies the process of parallel compression, as you no longer need to route a snare to a dedicated auxiliary channel to achieve parallel processing. You'll also note the high-pass sidechain detector, quite handy if you don't want the low-end of a signal to trigger the compression.
