Review: Slate Digital Virtual Bus Compressors VBC
Positives:Three brilliant compressors which can be used individually. They can also be used as a rack of 3. They are easy to operate, and they sound superb. I especially like the "mix" function for that "parallel compression" trick. The MU is my favourite. It's hard to make it sound bad.
Negatives:I'm supposed to put a negative in here ... hmmmm ... how about "Why didn't Steven Slate invent this plugin when I was young and helped me make ALL of my bands sound brilliant"
Until recently, the nearest I’d gotten to nice studio compressors, was watching the engineer tweak them while I my band’s songs were being mixed. Now, thanks to Slate Digital, my own recordings, of my bands and other bands, benefit from some really sweet compressions … both on individual tracks and busses.
As a result my mixes sound much more “together” and much more accomplished. That’s got to be worth the money!
