The 6030 Ultimate Compressor is the next generation of dynamic range control technology. Building from the entire McDSP compression algorithm code base, the 6030 adds new sonic capabilities, stunning new interfaces, and quality only McDSP could deliver.

Using the popular module format, the 6030 Ultimate Compressor 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 Ultimate Compressor 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 Ultimate Compressor has a custom-made dynamic range control module that is just right for you.


  • 10 compressor modules in a single interface
  • Side chain support
  • Analog Saturation modeling
  • Double precision processing
  • Ultra low latency
  • Mono and stereo versions

6030 Compressor Modules


Based on the acclaimed Fairchild 670, a new set of attack ballistics was created to accommodate modern production styles, the ‘warmth’ factor was tweaked, and the U670 was born.

Moo Tube

An all tube design emulation, with some unique twists. Mid range sensitivity, attack and recovery time ranges, and output frequency response characteristics were all re-worked by McDSP engineering.


Attack and release times are not adjustable, but are instead automatically updated based on user selected threshold and ratio control values. Good on songs headed to iTunes.


These Opto models use McDSP designed key signal circuits for an improved response from the originals. The Opto models also use a different release characteristic, because we like to tweak!


The British-C model offers the standard compressor control set, but McDSP added internal smarts to prevent unwanted distortion, even at extreme compression settings – not unlike other high-end analog compressors from this part of the world.

Over EZ

The Over EZ module incorporates a smooth knee response with a flexible control configuration, making it useful in a variety of situations.


The SST’76 is a fast reactive design that sounds great on drums and other percussive sources. The solid-state (SST) circuit model uses a McDSP designed key circuit to boot.


Referred to as ‘The Frog’, the FRG444 uses a moderately aggressive compression design for a more, well, aggressive kind of sound. The FRG444 will give you goose bumps, especially on big rock drum kits.


The D357 is the most aggressive compressor in the 6030 collection. An LED style gain reduction meter is used to display the rapid dynamic range control changes the D357 is capable of enacting on unsuspecting audio.
