Slate Digital has announced the immediate release of the FG-A, which they describe as a precise recreation of one of the most famous analog equalizers in audio history. They say that, with its classic proportional q curves and fat saturation, it’s sure to become one of your go-to EQs for any track that needs sweetening.
A spokesperson had this to say, "Our development team took great care to recreate every single nuance of the hardware's unique topology including its proportional curves and its very complex nonlinear behavior which is selectable via the opamp button. This button adds the discrete opamp and transformer emulations. Just like with the hardware, the analog color in this EQ occurs before AND after the EQ filters, and even in between two consecutive bands. Furthermore, the nonlinear coloration is dynamically dependent on the settings, which is something that we found in the hardware but not in any other emulation of the hardware. Therefore, pros will likely hear something unique about the FG-A, even if they have similar plugins from other developers."
