What is VMR?
VMR stands for Virtual Mix Rack, and it is a plugin that acts as a virtual 500 series rack with hot-swappable modules. You can load any of the Slate Digital modules into the VMR, and rearrange them in any order you want. You can also clone, solo, mute, and bypass any of the modules with ease. The VMR allows you to customize your own channel strip, with signal flow following the modules, in any order you choose. You can mix and match filters from different EQs, chain an EQ before or after your compressor, or even use multiple compressors in parallel. The VMR gives you the flexibility and convenience of having your entire processing chain in one window, without compromising the sound quality or CPU performance.
What are the modules included in the VMR Complete Bundle?
The VMR Complete Bundle comes with four Slate Digital processing modules that cover all the essential tools you need for mixing any type of music. These are:
FG-N: A digital recreation of one of the most classic discrete Class A British equalizers from the 70's. It has a lush, fat, and bold sound that works great on everything from drums to vocals. It also adds rich harmonics and saturation to the signal when pushed hard. The FG-N has two mid bands that can be switched between bell and shelf modes, and a high-pass filter.
FG-S: A digital recreation of one of the most famous British console equalizers from the 80's. It has a musical and smooth sound that can be used for surgical cuts or wide boosts. It also has rich harmonics and interactive mid bands that add character and color to the signal. The FG-S has four bands of parametric EQ, with selectable frequencies and Q values.
FG-116: The most precise digital replication of the classic American FET limiter. It has a fast and punchy sound that can make anything sound more aggressive and powerful. It also has a transformer output stage that adds warmth and sheen to the signal. The FG-116 has variable attack and release times, ratio, input, output, and mix controls.
FG-401: A versatile compressor that started as a recreation of the classic British console channel compressor, but morphed into something more. It has two circuit paths that provide different tonal options: a smooth and rich vintage path, and a modern and transparent path. It also has a transformer input stage that adds harmonic distortion to the signal. The FG-401 has variable attack and release times, ratio, threshold, makeup gain, mix, and sidechain controls.
How to use the VMR Complete Bundle?
The VMR Complete Bundle is easy to use and intuitive. You can simply drag and drop any of the modules from the library pane into the rack pane, and reorder them as you wish. You can also save your own custom presets or load one of the many factory presets available. To compare different signal chains, you can use the A/B buttons to switch between two paths in real time. To adjust the settings of each module, you can use the knobs or sliders on the GUI, or use your mouse wheel or keyboard arrows for fine tuning. You can also resize the plugin window to fit your screen resolution.
