The Slate Digital Virtual Console Collection brings the sound of 6 of the world's top analog mixing consoles into your DAW workstation. The Virtual Console Collection consists of two plug-insâVirtual Channel and Virtual Mixbuss. Each mixer plug-in allows the user to choose from one of six modeled consoles. Virtual Channel is applied on individual mixing channels. Virtual Mixbuss goes on the first insert of the master fader.
Steven Slate and Slate Digital's CTO Fabrice Gabriel studied the legendary original consoles inside and out, then meticulously modeled the entire circuit path so that they could recreate every subtle nuance. Their hard work means when you use the Slate Virtual Console Collection, your DAW will instantly take on the personality of a real analog mixing desk, giving you improved imaging and depth. Instruments will also sit better in the frequency spectrum, making your mix easier and more musical. You can push the DAW faders up to find each digital mixer's "sweet spot."
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 non-linear musical qualities that digital mixing does not produce. 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. With the Virtual Console Collection, Slate once again is stirring up the analog summing world, this time in the digital mixing domain.
