Propellerhead's Reason DAW has been getting a lot of well deserved attention lately. The MIA (Music Industries Association) just awarded Reason 7 with "Computer Music – Music Software of the Year". That's a pretty big deal since this little piece of badass software was only synths and samples just a few years ago. But then they added recording.. And then they added really decent mixing and mastering.. And today they are a fully fledged Digital Audio Workstation comparable to Avid's Pro Tools. One of the great things that you can do with Reason today is make use of third party instruments and effect modules with Rack Extensions (plug-in). And one of the best Rack Extensions to come out lately is the McDSP Compressor Collection.
info from Propellerhead:
The Compressor Collection by McDSP is a bundle of amazing dynamic range processors, including the C670, FRG-4RE, and Moo Tube compressors.
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.
Get more out of your rack. Get the Compressor Collection by McDSP.
Included in this bundle
The C670 Rack Extension plug-in is a surprisingly flexible compressor in a three knob package. Modeled after vintage equipment valued at over $30,000, the C670 is as classic as they come, in a far more reliable software version complemented by new features not found in the original device.
The FRG-4RE Rack Extension plug-in is a feed-forward reactive gain compressor (FRG), referred to by McDSP engineering staff as 'the frog'. The FRG-4RE's features include a modern compression topology, separately adjustable attack and release controls, and a wide compression ratio control spread, ranging from nearly 1:1 to 20:1.
The Moo Tube Rack Extension plug-in is a software emulation of modern tube-based hardware compressors. When you want to fatten up your tracks, don't have a cow. Get some Moo in your music with the Moo Tube compressor.
