AES-NYC: Slate Digital Previews the VIRTUAL MIX RACK

Hey Steven

An important part of my workflow especially with EQ is flipping the controls to the faders on my C24. On some larger plugins (e.g izotope ozone) you can't do this well, because there are just too many controls. I'm imaging this could be the case with this plug in as you can add many instances.

I'm hoping you consider this element when mapping the plug in controls for Pro Tools, as i'm very interested.

Cheers

Phil

What is the significance of "-10" master fader? Do you drive an SSL by pulling the master fader down 10dB? Seems like instead you would push the rest of the faders up to drive the master buss, as Steven outlines below.

The Brit 4k is an emulation that loves to be abused.

Why not just use a trim after VCC, and then run it right into FG-X?
It seems there's no need to mess with the master fader volume.

[QUOTE=joellegros;9515673]Steven,

Any possbility to add a phase button to VCC in the update? This would be great for workflow.

I second that, it would be awsome.

Also, larger reduction than -6 dB on the trim for those tracks that were recorded a little bit to hot.

I'm excited about VMR!
Agree 100%

Same here. Doesn't even need to be very fancy, as long as it's built it around a modeled console with a few included essentials (bus comp, EQ, gate, limiter, tape deck, etc) with the option to purchase extra modules for it a la Sonar's ProChannel.

As for redundancy, another analogy for my question would be that that if I'm going through 2 identical simulations, then it could potentially be like (in the real world) going through an SSL board, and then going through another SSL board right after that.

But based on Steven's answer, that's not the case anyway.
Well, plenty of studios track through a console to tape, and then mixdown on that same console.

Happy Slate customer here (SSD,VCC, VBC). Sorry, but I don't get it this time. I think we do not have to argue why 500 series is so popular in the hardware realm. But a 500 software rack? Looks like marketing BS to me.

Hey Steven,

On the VCC, how much do you find yourself driving into it?

1. Right before clipping with drive at +6 or +12db
2. Clipping with drive at +6 or 12db
3. Normal 0db via VU meter with drive at +6 or +12db

Just curious.

Thanks,

Marc

By the way, very interested in the new plugins.
Wish there was a phase button on it.
Also, I hope they can be set to 1 plugin at a time and not 3 or 4.
This does remind me of IK CS plugin that can have all of their plugins in one plugin. Never used it, never will.
If it's setup like that, I probably will skip it.
If I'm not mistaken, in a 500 rack, can't you use each unit on different tracks?
I don't own a 500 rack, that's why I'm asking.
I have to admit, we have 2 Neve 1073's and this would be great to have that sound in plugins.
SSL Eq's were never that great so, don't know why he modeled those.
I wish he did the API or Massenberg or Focusrite, etc.
Also, by having a rack setup, you could do Mic Pre colors.
That hasn't been done yet.
Very cool that I could add the VCC to this.
I may get it just for that but, just not sure of the rack thing.

Thanks,

Marc

Wondering about the decision to implement preset time constants rather than variable attack/release functions? Can you explain a bit?

Very excited for this.

Great news !
Another vote for PT ICON mapping Steve !
I really love your plugins but as long as they don´t map on my D-Command
EQ/DYN section they´re pretty useless.

You can load as many up to eight or as few modules as you want.

There are major workflow advantages to loading one plugin and having your entire track mixing chain in front of you. Audition different filters on a track, combine filters to make a hybrid channel strip, experiment with order, eq 'into' the compressor, gain stage your modules for a desired effect, quickly access different processors to execute what you're going for, etc.

Now if you want to use other plugins along with the VMR, it works just like any other plugin and your workflow will not change. You can load one module if you want.

So everyone wins.

Cheers,
Steven

Although I will be at AES tomorrow and will definitely be checking out VMR, Steven can you grace us with some sound examples of each? Simple stuff, with the settings and of course Dry file.

Does the GUI have empty slots or will be variable-sized according to how many slots are filled? I'd hate to only be using 3 processors and have a bunch of wasted screen space.

I love having everything on one screen, BTW! Great concept!

I've seen a few plugins that can serve as VST hosts. If you make a channel strip that serves as a vst host, then peeps can put their other plugins wherever they want in the slate chain.
