McDSP has made a name for themselves outside the Propellerhead world – mostly with Pro Tools effects plugins. Now they have released their first Rack Extensions in the form of three compressors: FRG-4RE, Moo Tube and C670. Read on for more info!
I am far, far from a compression junkie. Generally Reason’s onboard solutions satisfies me when I reach for compression. But it’s great to see bigger names like McDSP jump into the RE market regardless! And of course more device choice for those who are more … discerning … regarding compression is also very welcome.
Each of the McDSP Rack Extensions retails for $49 each, or if you are thirsting for many different compression flavours, you can buy a bundle of all three for $119. How do the REs sound? Well, there are no audio/video demos available so you have two choices: take them for a test-drive with the free trial, or trust McDSPs marketing text. Here is a taste:
The C670 is a multi-staged compressor with a unique vintage vibe of awesomeness, the FRG-4RE feed-forward reactive gain algorithm (FRG) makes even the dullest tracks tasty, and the Moo Tube all tube based emulation puts the rest of your compressors out to pasture.
