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.
...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
Will it happen earlier than the FG-X 2 release? Thanks!
As someone who's been waiting for the FG-X2 very eagerly (I loved the FG-X) I have to ask: Why do you guys still want the FG-X2? I am not being ironic, it's an honest question. There are so many awesome limiters on the market at the moment (that did not exist back when FG-X was released)...
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...
