It's time to hear what Slate brings to the table vs other LA2A emulations

Slate Digital FG-2A vs Waves CLA-2A Compressor…here we go.

There’s been a lot of buzz since Slate Digital released their FG-2A (an LA2A emulation). There aren’t many companies who haven’t taken a shot at releasing their version of the LA2A:

  • Waves: CLA-2A
  • IK Multimedia: White 2A
  • Native Instruments: VC-2A
  • UAD Teletronix LA-2A
  • etc

Some are better than others, but all are usable and have their own special textures.

  • Male Rap Vocal
  • Female Vocal
  • Acoustic Guitar

I really like this test regardless of the levels being matched or not. Modern-sounding music being used as a medium/demo is a good switch up. Dry drum tracks need to be booted!

This is a great test with nice guitar tones, It’s gain matched and has a blind compressor test at the end.
