Slate Digital Announce their Virtual Preamp Collection adds the sound of two of the industry's most classic preamps to your digital audio workstation at NAMM 2016 today. They have also announced a partnership with Scuffham Amps to include their guitar plug-in S-Gear into the Everything Bundles, either monthly or annually. Finally another addition to the EveryThing Bundle is the new Eiosis Air & Earth Modules for the Slate Digital VMR.
Slate Digital Virtual Preamp Collection
The Virtual Preamp Collection or “VPC” was originally designed to be used with the Virtual Microphone System’s VMS ONE Ultra Linear Microphone Preamp, but it can be used with 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.
The FG-73 preamp module is modelled after one of the most famous British discrete solid state preamps in the audio industry that has been used on countless recordings. It has a bold, present, and warm sound that sounds great on any audio source and even full mixes.
This FG76 preamp module is modelled after a classic vintage tube preamp that has been used on many classic recordings. It has a thick, warm, and colourful 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
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 colour 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.
