Create the channel strips of your dreams with VMR 2.0

Version 2.0 of Slate Digital's VMR includes lots of tweaks, improvements, and added features. At Sweetwater, we appreciate VMR 2.0's slicker browser with thumbnail and list modes, as well as a handy search function. Clear the entire rack with the touch of a button. Benefit from faster loading times. Convenient undo/redo buttons allow you to get creative without losing your settings. Heavy saturation and distortion sound better than ever, thanks to VMR 2.0's oversampling option. And per customer request, the noise has been removed from the FG-N, FG-S, FG-Stress, FG-73, and FG-76 modules. The most exciting new feature, however, is VMR 2.0's Dream Strips. Dream Strips give you instant access to eight customizable channel strip configurations, allowing you to audition full signal chains with a single click.

Two analog-modeled EQs you'll want to use on every mix

The spectrum-shaping side of the VMR Virtual Mix Rack plug-in includes the FG-N and FG-S equalizer modules. The FG-N is a glorious-sounding equalizer based on a legendary British design, modeled to perfection. You get the lovely saturation in the filters, along with the subtle harmonics that give this EQ its unique character. The FG-S is another classic equalizer modeled from a famous mixing desk EQ, and it's the ultimate workhorse, perfect for aggressive drums, bass, and guitars.

Control or fatten any track with VCA- and FET-modeled compressors

Whether you want inconspicuous dynamics control or want to crush a drum mix for an epic sound, you've got the tools you need in the VMR 2.0 plug-in. With two unique circuit paths and a gorgeously fat-sounding transformer, the FG-401 compressor is a hybrid of some of the most popular VCA channel compressors in use today and gives you impressive sonic variety. The FG-116 is a dead-on re-creation of a classic American FET compressor. Slate CTO Fabrice Gabriel says this was the most difficult compressor he's ever modeled, but we think he managed to re-create all the little nuances that give this compressor its iconic sound.
