Slate FG-401 for LA-3A duties?

Hi guys,

With Waves' CLA-3A on sale now I'm wondering what you guys think of using the Slate FG-401 as an LA-3A. I've used and loved the CLA-3A but wanted to get your take on Slate's advice (here) on using the 401 as an LA-3A before I pull the trigger.

His response:
It's in the works, but looking more towards end of year. We do have a killer opto setting on the upcoming FG-Swiss which is arriving this summer.

But, I promise you that if you put the FG-401 on attack in the middle, release three clicks away from left, 6:1, CIRCUIT 2, you will get very close to an LA-3A.. in fact I have comparison files somewhere. Circuit 2 adds an opto like dual stage release that is super smooth.
