Product Overview

Slate Digital puts 6 classic analog consoles in your DAW, and studio guru Marcus Huyskens shows you how to use them! This series explores the significant difference between VCC 2.0 and the previous version, and how to make the most of the new plug-in version.

Marcus begins with an overview of the new GUI, comparing it to the previous GUI, and then explains the various Meter Calibration options new to VCC 2.0. From there, Marcus jumps right into using VCC 2 in a Mix, using different consoles and grouping options.

Since one of VCC's strength is it's ability to be recalled by your DAW, he shows you how to store default settings in Pro Tools. Then Marcus returns to the plug-in, exploring the Noise Reduction, Group Bypass, and Gain Staging in VCC 2.

Marcus wraps it up with a tutorial on creative uses for VCC 2 using a bass guitar track as his example. Whether a beginner or advanced Slate Digital VCC user, or you're just looking to see what a console plug-in could do for your tracks, watch "VCC 2.0 Explained" today!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Slate's VCC covered in just the right amount of detail. Well done. I'm used to seeing MH's high standards of training on Studio One tutorials and he does not disappoint here. The concepts are the same regardless of DAW your using.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Nice tutorial VCC is fairly quite simple plugin to use, but still I learnt few things from this tutorial, like VU meter calibration option. I only regret that there was no video about different console types, it would be nice to see photo of every one of them and hear some history or maybe technical details.
