BEWARE: Does not work with 64bit Logic Pro X at time of writing!

I'm only giving this one star because in truth, I can't even evaluate it. The reason? Well, after installing it, registering it and authenticating the iLok so I could try it out, Logic Pro X won't even recognise it as an Audio Unit.

Initially I thought I'd done something wrong when I installed it, so I uninstalled and reinstalled, restarted my system a few times etc. but nothing. I was most confused considering I'd just installed the VBC compressors without a hitch.

So, I went looking onto forums for help and then my heart sank. It turns out that FG-X is only 64bit on Windows! In fact, it even says so on Slate Digital's website under "System Requirements":

- 32bit only for Mac OS X

Now, had I have known that ahead of time I could have saved 3 hours of my life trying to get the damn thing to work - at time of purchase the Thomann website did not mention that it's only available as a 32bit plugin on OS X. Hopefully they will update that soon to prevent other users experiencing this headache.

I'm currently in the process of trying to obtain a refund from Thomann as it's not possible to run this on my machine, therefore it doesn't work, but as I've registered it I may have to take it on the chin and hope that they release a 64 bit version in the near future - although I'm not holding my breath as it looks like Slate Digital made an announcement back in 2012 that they were "working on it" and it's now 2014, so...

If they DO release a 64 bit version then I will update this review accordingly because even if I get refunded I'll definitely buy it again. Until then, if you're a Logic Pro X user on a 64bit OS X and can't run Logic in 32bit mode (like me) then avoid this until their website says it works on 64 bit.

The FG-X is a mastering plugin from Slate Digital. It's consists of a compressor and a limiter section. The compressor is very transparent and simple in its design. I find this to be perhaps the most unused feature on the plugin, especially now that VBC is out. The compressor is simply too plain and tame in most cases, however it works well if you need to 'tuck-in' your audio a little bit. It's very subtle as a mastering compressor should be.
The limiter section is FG-X's most known feature, being capable of bringing up the volume of your entire mix without squashing it like many other limiters tend to do. There are a lot of mixed opinions on the limiter, however I love it since it allows me to bring my mix to a commercial level without destroying the mix I spent several hours on. The transient modeling section is great; you can really enhance the dynamics of your mix with this, and it works great on individual bus material as well.
A great, powerful, simple tool for your mastering bus to bring your mix levels up to and to enhance the effectiveness of it.
