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.


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.


Retro plug-ins are a line of ‘classics’ that can live up to their own name without emulating something else.


Main Features:

  • Unique original algorithms with transparent yet vintage sound


  • Mix control


  • Side chain support


  • Anti-Clip Output Stage Topology


  • Analog Saturation Modeling


  • Double Precision Processing


  • Ultra Low Latency


  • Mono and Stereo versions
