Steven Slate brings 5 of the world's most legendary analog consoles to your DAW workstation.

The Slate Digital VIRTUAL CONSOLE COLLECTION consists of two plug-ins: Virtual Channel (applied to mixing channels) and Virtual Mixbuss (applied to master fader). Each plugin allows the user to choose from one of five meticulously modeled consoles. When using the Virtual Console Collection, your DAW instantly takes on the personality of a real analog mixing desk with all its subtleties and nuances. 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.

The Concept:
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.

In 2011, Slate once again stirred up the analog summing world, this time in the digital domain. "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.

Comments about Slate Digital Virtual Console Collection Mastering Software:

Although I was a bit frustrated to pay 40.00$ for shipping, you used UPS which added another 30.00$ admin fees. Don't sent to Canada UPS guys. Otherwise, I am satisfied of the good product at a final not so good price. But still...
