Product Info

Emulation of FG-73/76 Mic Preamp

The Slate Digital VIRTUAL PREAMP COLLECTION brings the authentic tone of two of the audio industry’s most classic microphone preamplifiers to your DAW. Each preamp uses state-of-the-art analog modeling technology to recreate every aspect of the preamp circuit, from mild coloration to full-on saturation and distortion. The VPC was originally designed to be used on tracks recorded with the Virtual Microphone System’s VMS-ONE Ultra Linear Microphone Preamp, but it can be used after any clean sounding preamp to add extra vibe. VPC can also add real analog preamp tone to any track or mix, and even create rich-sounding distortion effects when pushed hard.

FG-73

The FG-73 preamp module is modeled after one of the most famous discrete solid state preamps in the industry, made in Britain and used on countless recordings. It has a bold, present and warm sound that works great on any audio source – even full mixes.

FG-76

The FG-76 preamp module is modeled after a vintage German tube preamp that has been used on many classic recordings. It has a thick and colorful tone that can make tracks and mixes sound more ‘alive’. The bottom-end saturates in a very unique and musical way, making it a great module for bass guitar and kick drum tracks.

VIRTUAL DRIVE

Both modules feature a “virtual drive” knob. This knob simulates the action of increasing the amplifier input gain while automatically decreasing an internal output trim, so it can set the gain staging of the preamp easily. For most color and tone effects, the left part of the knob should be used. For more saturation and full-on distortion, the virtual drive can be pushed to the right side or even fully cranked.

CONCLUSION

Using the Virtual Preamp Collection along with the other Slate Digital analog modeled tools can ensure that your mixes come to life with real analog vibe, color, and tone. VPC is available in the Slate Digital EVERYTHING BUNDLES, or it can be purchased by itself for use in the Virtual Mix Rack.
