NAMM 2019: Slate Introduces 4 Brand-New Plugins
In the midst of this year’s NAMM show, SlateDigital has announced 4 brand-new plugins that bring new virtual microphones, gate and reverb effects, and amp simulators. You can learn more about each of these new plugins below.
Lustrous Plates Reverb
“Liquid Sonics Lustrous Plates combines dynamic spectral capture with fusion synthesis to create the most stunning plate reverb plugin you’ve ever heard! It features seven unique plates and the ability to manipulate them in ways that no other reverb plugin can. Everything Bundle members will add incredible depth and space to their mixes with Lustrous Plates!”
Overloud TH-U Amp Simulator
“Overloud TH-U Slate Edition is one of the biggest additions ever to the Slate Everything Bundle. With TH-U, Everything Bundle members get over 100 modeled pieces, including 30+ guitar amps, 19 cabinet models, 33 effects modules and pedals, and 18 microphones. But perhaps the biggest game-changing feature of TH-U is R2M which stands for “Rig 2 Model”. R2M allows Overloud engineers to reproduce the famous amp profiles from one of the most popular hardware amp profiler. This means that TH-U’s Rig Player can recreate entire amp rigs including the nonlinear and dynamic response of the amplifier, the cabinet, the microphones, the mic preamp and room sound.”
Slate Drum Gate
“The noise gate is one of the most essential tools in the pro audio arsenal, but there has been virtually zero advancements in gate plugins over the past decade. Until now. Enter the Slate Gate Series featuring two unique Gate plugins]. The first, which will be previewed at NAMM 2019, is the Drum Gate. With unique features such as advanced transient detection and a revolutionary de-bleeding algorithm, you’ll get clean and easy results on even the most horrific tracks!”
Blackbird Mics Expansion
“John McBride’s Blackbird Studios in Nashville, Tennessee is known for having one of the world’s largest collections of recording gear, including 1,400 vintage and modern microphones. Recently, McBride personally hand-picked the five very best vintage tube mics for the Blackbird VMS expansion pack. This pack features the 47 that George Massenburg called “the finest 47 I’ve ever heard,” as well as a 251 serial #584, which has previously been reserved exclusively for John’s wife, recording artist Martina McBride. With the Blackbird VMS Expansion pack, VMS users will gain instant access to the exact tone of five of the very best vintage tube mics in the world!”
