Nice to hear that, Steve! Good luck!

Slate Digital is making the best plugins and a Neve EQ from slate is INSANE. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
You can always buy the VMR Neve EQ, and ignore those other modules.

By the way I second this because I do not need any EQS anymore. I would like to buy just the comps.

I'm pretty sure Steven said they come as a pack to start with and then you can buy individual processors from there as they release them. At slate prices you can't really go wrong to be honest

Oh man.. I never had the problem of having too much plugins
I´m pretty sure my list of "go-to" plugs will change at the moment I got me a copy of the VMR.

Hey as long as you're getting a return on investment that's not a bad thing!

Sorry I've been out of it guys.. I was walking down the street yesterday and some guy tried to put a bag on me. It was weird.

Anyway, here is updated news:

Still tweaking the harmonic characteristics of the FG-116 FET Comp to match the hardware behavior 100%. Our goal is to make this the absolute most authentic digital version of this famous compressor that you've ever heard, and we are damn close. The real hardware gets very noisy with heavy compression.. not to worry, we're gonna have a noise on/off button.

I can't say any dates right now, but I can say that there will be a nice little surprise regarding the VMR that you'll hear about soon.

Cheers,
Steven

Take your time Steve !

May I say I would really need the FG-X for AAX PT 11....

I sold my sonnox limiter back in the PT 10 days since it
didn´t come close to your product but now I don´t have
any usable limiter & don´t want to buy something else...

Steven, is there going to be an iLok discount or offer with this?

I'm building a dedicated 2U rackmount PC running VEP for this suite (along with a few other plugins) -- a sort of roll-your-own UAD style system -- and would need an additional iLok.

Thought I'd ask before purchasing one, outright.

Glad you're taking the time to get it right.

Best regards.

I'm going to have a guess at what this announcement will include:
- VMR will ship with 5+ modules
- - the 2 EQs
- - 2 comps
- - VCC with a 6th emulation
- - a de-esser
- - an analogue saturation module (as if there wasn't enough going on
- - and maybe a gate.

The thinking behind this is that they're preparing VMR to be a complete vocal FX chain to go with the new microphone system.

I'm gonna have a guess about the announcement too.

"The VMR will come out sometime 2015ish (clips, SUPER soon though guys!) but we've got a new ________ emulation that will change the way music is produced fo-evah! Take YOUR studio productions to the next level. The Steven Slate level....Coming really super soon! Right along with an output trim for VCC."

Kidding of course.

Go get em, Steve. I don't care when the VMR comes out. I'll give it an honest demo. If you can get into UAD MKII territory, or close-ish, I'll be happy to offload some processing to my native CPU.
