6030 Ultimate Compressor
The 6030 Ultimate Compressor is the next generation of dynamic range control technology. Building on the entire McDSP compression algorithm code base, the 6030 adds new sonic capabilities, stunning interfaces, and quality only McDSP could deliver.
Using the popular module format, the 6030 offers ten different compressors. All of these designs are by McDSP - some completely from the ground up, while others are emulations of existing gear with unique variations created by McDSP. Each 6030 module is easy to operate, and yet has enough sophistication for the most discerning professional.
Whatever your style, from smooth tube emulations to aggressive solid-state designs, the 6030 has a custom-made dynamic range control module that is right for you.
The 6030 Ultimate Compressor is available individually as well as part of the Emerald Pack v5 bundle, available to Emerald Pack v4 customers as an upgrade.
