Slate Digital FG-2A Compressor

Plug-In mod of one of the most legendary Opto compressors

MFR# 1035-1626

Product Description

The Slate Digital FG-2A Compressor is designed to give you some of the most musical compression and dynamics-taming available. Slather it on vocals, electric basses, electric guitars, horns, or any other instrument that could benefit from a more fluid hand, rather than a strict time-constant approach. Modeling everything from the T4 optical circuit to the tubes, the FG-2A gives you a smooth glassy tone in addition to its dynamics control. The controls are simple: Gain and Peak Reduction are your main knobs. A less prominent mix control allows you to blend dry with wet signal. A Limit/Compress switch roughly dictates the ratio of compression (everything with an opto compressor is designed to be approximate). A Bias control changes how the compressor reacts to the low end, and a stereo-link switch lets you compress two sides of a stereo track either independently or together. Formatted for AU, VST, VST3, and AAX hosts, the plug-in works in Mac and Windows operating systes, and is available as part of Slate's All Access Pass.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
