Slate Dig­i­tal FG-A Vin­tage Amer­i­can Equal­izer

Computer Music - - News -

Want to get “the ex­act tone” of the fa­mously mus­cu­lar API 550A hard­ware EQ into your soft­ware-based pro­duc­tions? Lend an ear to Slate’s new FG-A Vin­tage Amer­i­can Equal­izer, then. It fea­tures four bands of pro­por­tional-Q equal­i­sa­tion, with the high and low bands switch­able into shelv­ing mode. The EQ knobs are au­then­ti­cally stepped – un­til you hold Cmd/Ctrl, where­upon the kind of smooth, con­tin­u­ous ad­just­ment not pos­si­ble on the real gear but very much stan­dard in mod­ern EQs is en­abled. Flip the Fil­ter but­ton to fo­cus the sound with a 50Hz-15kHz band-pass, and tog­gle the mod­elled sat­u­ra­tion (which can be po­si­tioned pre, post, or even in between ad­ja­cent bands) with the Opamp but­ton.

Vin­tage Amer­i­can Equal­izer is priced $149, or in­cluded in Slate’s $14.99/month Ev­ery­thing Bun­dle.
