The 4030 Retro Compressor HD v5 from McDSP is a compressor plug-in that features a 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. The plug-in uses an output stage topology designed by the company to eliminate digital clipping at any output level and produce a smoother distortion characteristic.
The v5 HD plug-in bundle provides TDM functioning for Pro Tool HD, but also includes an Audio Units version for use with DAWs that support the format, including Logic, Digital Performer (DP) and Ableton Live. Additionally, a third party software application that supports the TDM, RTAS, or AudioSuite plug-in standard can also be used.
Note: iLok required if one is not already on the system.
