Analog Summing Plug-in Bundle with Virtual Channel and Virtual Mixbuss Plug-ins - Mac/PC AAX, VST, AU
Despite the digital revolution in the audio industry, many of today's top commercial albums are still mixed on analog consoles. Audio engineers rely on analog mixing to provide the nonlinear musical qualities that digital mixing does not produce. "When you mix through an analog desk you get this life and body to the sound that just doesn't happen when you mix inside the workstation. The separation and imaging from the analog summing is very apparent, especially when your track count gets high" remarks mixer Jay Baumgardner (Papa Roach, Evanescence).
Over the past ten years, multiple audio manufacturers have produced simplified analog summing boxes that allow DAW users to get the benefits of analog mixing without having to use a full fledged analog desk. In 2001, Steven Slate made his mark in the analog summing world by commissioning Roll Music Systems to design and manufacture a custom analog summing box that was later named the FOLCROM. The FOLCROM continues to be one of the most popular analog summing boxes on the market, used by mixer Mike Shipley and other top names. Now in 2011, Slate once again stirs up the analog summing world, this time in the digital domain.
The Slate Digital VIRTUAL CONSOLE COLLECTION brings the sound of 5 of the world's top analog consoles into your DAW workstation. "Slate Digital CTO Fabrice Gabriel and I studied these consoles inside and out. We meticulously modeled the entire circuit path so that we could recreate every subtle nuance that makes these consoles the legends that they are," says Slate.
The VIRTUAL CONSOLE COLLECTION consists of two plugins, Virtual Channel and Virtual Mixbuss. Each plugin allows the user to choose from one of five modeled consoles. Virtual Channel is applied on individual mixing channels. Virtual Mixbuss goes on the first insert of the master fader. When using the Virtual Console Collection, your DAW instantly takes on the personality of a real analog mixing desk. The imaging and depth improves, instruments sit better in the frequency spectrum, and mixing becomes easier and more musical. You can even push the DAW faders up to find each mixer's "sweet spot."

Haha, yes, I guess my ears must have been fooling me for these past 8 years. Putting it all up for sale now. :lol: Can't wait to install Slate VCC and VTM again. :lol:
...how could we anyway there is not even a master module for the summing bus like Slate does with the VCC... and even on a channel perspective the generated harmonic structure of the hardware is not emulated here. The saturation / color is just a gimmick and poorly executed. And slamming the SSL and...
...also in my GS signature and the second song to the other post above... same specs..

Tired of having "digititus"? Same old boring "too clean" ITB sound?
Slate Digital Created the VCC to cure those problems! Analog summing rolled into a nice plugin package. You can choose the flavors of some classic consoles such as SSL, Neve, Trident, API or even an older RCA tube desk! You get...
As many of you long term gearslutz out there know, this vst has a legendary long entry on the forum. There were many problems at the beginning and that is well documented. I, however, never experienced any of the issues that the threads discussed. I used it on windows 7/vista and cubase 5/6...
