Original Vintage Style Designs-Vintage Compressor
The 4030 Retro Compressor is a new dynamic range control topology coupled with a wet/dry mix control to balance compressed and uncompressed signals. An active attack and release design allows aggressive compression settings with minimal artifact generation.
Retro plug-ins are designed for the ultimate vintage vibe, using new and original designs based on McDSP’s decade of industry experience. Retro plug-ins are a line of ‘classics’ that can live up to their own name without emulating something else.
All Retro plug-ins use a McDSP designed output stage topology to eliminate digital clipping at any output level and produce a smoother distortion characteristic. This feature is in addition to the analog saturation modeling that has made McDSP famous over the last decade.
