The interface of FabFilter Pro-G is designed to be easy to use while providing all necessary
information and controls. It consists of the following elements:
Real-time level display and level metering
In the middle section of the plug-in, the real-time moving level display and the level meter
show you at a glance what's happening to your audio. They show the output level (light blue) on
top of the input (dark blue), with a 60 dB scale. See Metering.
To the left of the level display are the controls that determine the range and amount of
gating/expansion: Threshold, Ratio and Range. See Dynamic
Time controls, style and knee
To the right of the level display are the controls that affect the reaction speed, hold time
and look-ahead time of the gate/expander algorithm, together with a style selection button and
a custom knee setting. See Time controls, style and knee.
Via the Expert button under the level display, you can enable or disable expert mode. When
enabled, the interface will resize itself to offer additional options for customizing the
side-chain triggering signal and adjusting the wet and dry signals separately. See Expert mode.
MIDI Learn lets you easily associate any MIDI controller with any plug-in parameter. See
The Oversampling setting sets the amount of internal oversampling, which reduces possible
aliasing for fast attack or release settings at the cost of additional CPU usage. See Oversampling.
Input and output options
On the far right of the bottom bar, you can bypass the entire plug-in and adjust the initial
input and final output levels. See Input and output
Presets, undo, A/B, help
With the preset buttons, you can easily browse through the factory presets or save your own
settings so you can re-use them in other songs. The Undo, Redo, A/B and Copy buttons at the top
of the plug-in interface enable you to undo your changes and switch between different states of
the plug-in. Finally, the Help menu provides access to help and version information. See
