The 4030 Retro Compressor is a unique dynamic range control topology. It is 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 that puts a unique transformer-like touch on the audio signal.
Retro plug-ins are a line of ‘classics’ that can live up to their own name without emulating something else.
