All Retro plug-ins use a new 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.
In addition to the three full featured McDSP Retro plug-ins, Retro Pack also contains a pre-programmed McDSP Green iLok. Retro Pack is ready to plug and play right out of the box.
Retro Pack includes:
• 4020 Retro EQ - a four-band EQ and complimentary filter set. The HF and LF bands are shelving EQ, with two additional parametric EQs at the HMF and LMF bands. All EQ operates on a unique gain dependent variable slope/Q system for a vintage smooth sound with added intelligence for steeper responses at high gains.
• 4030 Retro Compressor - 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.
• 4040 Retro Limiter - combines a look-ahead brick wall limiter function with several subjective treatments to make the limiting action subtle, and yet vintage.
• Pre-programmed McDSP green iLok
