Product Overview Loud, Punchy Masters Without the Mush
Imagine mastering your mixes without causing the lifeless, squashed, and over compressed sound that has become so common in modern music. We have all been at the mercy of the "loudness wars" for over ten years now. Masters have become louder and louder, at the expense of the music becoming harsh and lacking punch and dynamics. One of the main causes of this epidemic is the use of the Peak Limiter to achieve increased levels in the mastering stage. Peak limiters attenuate transients and often reduce punch, stereo imaging, can greatly alter mix balances, and cause a fatiguing result to the ears.

Some of the top mastering engineers have found ways to combat this sonic degradation by using techniques other then Peak Limiting. One of the more popular techniques is the use of saturation in both the analog and digital domain. Another popular method is clipping the front end of expensive A/D converters.

However, both of these methods, while better then peak limiting, have their downfalls. Static saturation curves are not universal in their ability to sound good on all transients. Clipping greatly reduces low end punch and is very poor at retaining sub bass. Both static saturation and clipping have a small window of gain maximising before audible distortion.

It is impossible to overstate the importance of the final mastering stage when mixing, as it can make or break a recording. The FG-X Mastering Processor is Slate Digital’s award-winning mastering plugin that combines an ultra-transparent compressor, the industry’s most coveted loudness enhancer, and a comprehensive metering panel. FG-X can make your mixes louder without altering the dynamics, removing punch, or skewing your mix balances.

Intelligent Transient Preservation
The FG-Level Loudness enhancer module uses a proprietary process called “Intelligent Transient Preservation”, or ITP. ITP looks ahead at your mix peaks and optimizes a custom saturation curve that best preserves its characteristics. For example, if it sees a kick drum, it will create a saturation curve that best preserves low end energy. If it sees a snare drum, it will saturate it with a curve that best retains midrange punch. Overall, the ITP will keep your mixes punchy and dynamic while making them competitively loud.

Dynamic Perception
Dynamic Perception is a process that will simulate more dynamics in your mix, which can be helpful in the loudness process as dynamics are reduced. It’s a very powerful control that can really help retain the original dynamics of your mix, or even add a bit more.

Lo Punch and Detail
Lo Punch can raise the level of the low-end punch of the mix (like the kick drum level, for instance) while Detail will raise the level of the high-end punch (such as a snare drum). These controls are intended to be used to customize the amount of transient articulation in the final master.

Transparent Compression
The FG-Comp is a world-class mastering compressor and leveler, capable of extremely transparent compression that is unrivaled in both the digital and analog domains. Features Minimum System Requirements
