Cutting edge algorithms look ahead and adjust themselves to optimise for specific types of transient. This leaves your mix clear, defined and punchy, but still up to commercial loudness levels.
The loudness war has caused modern commercial music to sound squashed, lifeless and over compressed. Masters have become louder and louder while the music has become harsh sounding and lacking in punch and dynamics. The main cause of this is the use of the Peak Limiter to raise the levels at the mastering stage. Peak Limiters work by attenuating transients. This reduces punch and stereo imaging and also affects the mix balance and fatigues the ear.
The Slate Digital FG-X overcomes this problem by using a newly developed set of algorithms called Intelligent Transient Preservation or ITP. These new algorithms work by using a Look Ahead technique to analyse the programme material. When a transient is detected, ITP alters the algorithm to process the transient properly to raise the level whist preserving punch and dynamics. The end result is a master that is just as loud as any commercial release but with all of the punch and dynamics as the original mix, if not more! The effect of ITP can be fully controlled and you can blend as much or as little of the ITP process into your master as you like.
Not only does FG-X feature the most advanced mastering algorithms ever created, but it also features a comprehensive set of tools to add punch and air to your master. The Lo Punch and Detail controls allow you to replace any punch and definition lost in the compression process. The world class compressor module controls the dynamics of your mix whilst being as transparent as possible in order to keep as much of the sound of your mix as possible.
All of the features in FG-X are designed specifically to maintain as much of your original mix as possible. Every process is totally transparent so you can create the perfect master without adding any unnecessary tone or colour and maintaining the detail and balance of your original mix.
Slate Digital worked with some of the top mastering engineers in the world to perfect FG-X and make it as fine and accurate as possible. FG-X is the ultimate digital mastering solution and will help to take your masters to new levels.
