FabFilter Pro-G online help

Table of contents


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:

FabFilter Pro-G Overview
  • 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.
  • Dynamic controls
    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 controls.
  • 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.
  • Expert settings
    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
    MIDI Learn lets you easily associate any MIDI controller with any plug-in parameter. See MIDI Learn.
  • Oversampling
    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 options.
  • Full Screen mode, resizing and scaling
    The Resize button at the far right of the bottom bar lets you change the interface size and scaling. In addition, click the Full Screen button in the top-right corner of the interface to let Pro-G fill the entire screen. See Full Screen mode, resizing and scaling.
  • 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 Loading presets and Undo, redo, A/B switch.
