...no update?! "Greatest, most amazing, utterly unbelievable" stuff gets released almost every month now...but still no news about the promised FG-X update!? I don't really feel taken seriously anymore...it's quite disappointing :-/ Come on Slate...marketing is not everything, what are your priorities nowadays? Please don't forget your roots...and your early customers... ...just a thought
...arsenal, you can already do stellar mixes and many people do just that. We're making great progress on both the FG-X and FG-Stress. They are both our top priorities and our senior DSP guys including Fabrice are working day and night on them. And also, we have a large DSP team that are working...
The FG-X is the best mastering processor I have used to date. It can get the mixes very loud while maintaining a dynamic feel.
It has two sections. A Compressor and a Leveler.
The compressor is very transparent. It helps tame the mix before the final leveling stage.
Before we get started on this review I want to go into some back-story on myself.
I master records for a living.
I'm not a famous engineer with several Grammy's, though I have worked for a high profile software developer (Studio One Media) years ago, and one of the primary functions of what...
The FG-Level is the industry’s top loudness enhancer, relying on a proprietary Intelligent Transient Preservation process. Rather than simply brickwall limit, the ITP process optimizes saturation curves to absorb peaks in a more natural and transparent way. The FG-Level also includes mastering-grade transient enhancement, as well as a revolutionary algorithm called Dynamic Perception, which increases the perceived dynamics in a mix. Overall, the FG-X is capable of increasing the loudness of a mix to pro mastering-quality levels without ever sounding like anything has changed, as punch, depth, and dynamics remain intact.
