Slate and Distressor fans rejoice. Steven Slate just announced that the FG-Stress, a licensed digital replica of the Empirical Labs Distressor, is finally available (yep, this time it’s for real!)
The FG-Stress replicates every aspect of the iconic hardware including its unique capabilities to model other famous hardware compressors.
Everything Bundle Members can download the FG-Stress right now. If you are not an Everything Bundle Member, there is a sale right now!
Buy a year up front and get two months FREE, so only $149 for over 25 plugins! Sale Ends Sunday.
If you want to buy FG-Stress, the normal price is $249 but the intro price is $199.
Alternative Options Arousor, from Empirical Labs (the makers of the original Distressor), is a software plugin that emulates (and expands) the features of their classic hardware unit. Regular price $299 (ouch!), currently on sale for $224. Now it’s also available with a subscription plan for $5 a month, or $50 a year.
If you’re broke or you would just like to be in the ballpark, check out the Pensadia SOR8 ($29) or SKnote Disto ($39.99), a sort of Distressor meets Fatso emulation.
