The McDSP Retro Pack bundle is originally styled and designed for the ultimate vintage audio vibe. The Retro Pack bundle includes three plugins, the 4020 Retro EQ, the 4030 Retro Compressor and the 4040 Retro Limiter.
All Retro plugins 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 plugins are a line of 'classics' that can live up to their own name without emulating something else.
4020 Retro EQ
The 4020 Retro EQ is 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 bands operate on a unique gain dependent variable slope/Q system for a vintage smooth sound and increased boost/cut frequency selectivity high gains. The HPF and LPF filters use a unique split-octave design giving a 12 dB / Oct slope near the selected frequency, and a maximum slope of 24 dB / Oct.
4030 Retro 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.
4040 Retro Limiter
The 4040 Retro Limiter combines a look-ahead brick wall limiter function with several subjective treatments to make the limiting action subtle, and yet vintage.
