Emerald Pack is the original music production bundle by McDSP.
Some of McDSP’s biggest hits are included in Emerald Pack. Popular plug-ins include the ML4000, FutzBox, Channel G, Analog Channel, and the 6030 Ultimate Compressor. If you need some McDSP in your mix, but can’t afford everything, the Emerald Pack is a great choice.
The MC2000 is a high-end multi-band compressor plug-in designed to emulate the sounds of vintage and modern compressors.
MC202– Two-band compression
MC303– Three-band compression
MC404– Four-band compression
The MC2000 gives the user complete control of multi-band dynamic compression. Common controls such as output (make-up gain), threshold, compression (ratio), attack, and release are provided. Non-standard Knee and BITE controls allow unique and unprecedented articulation of compression characteristics. Multiple peak detection circuit types provide flexibility only previously achieved by owning several compression units. Steep 24 dB/Oct crossover filters minimize signal leakage into adjacent compression bands.

FilterBank, McDSP’s first product, is an equalizer plug-in that rivals any analog EQ with its flexible design and substantial feature collection.
FilterBank can emulate any EQ, or be used to create a distinct custom EQ.
E606 – Parametric, high and low shelving EQ, high and low pass filters
F202 – Steep high and low pass filtering with resonant Q control
F606 – Parametric EQ with variable Q modes
Since its debut in 1998, FilterBank has become a legend within the audio community. With its unique Peak, Slope, Dip controls and variable Q modes FilterBank can emulate any EQ, or be used to create a distinct custom EQ.

6030 Ultimate Compressor
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.

The DE555 is a new generation of de-essing technology, providing transparent, precise de-essing with unique flexibility.
Intelligent signal analysis allows the DE555 to effectively de-ess at any signal level – no manual input threshold adjustment required. Other options include continuously adjustable ratio and release controls to fine- tune the de-essing amount, plus a high frequency (HF) only mode for reducing the signal level of only the ‘sss’ and not the original dialog.

CompressorBank is a high-end compressor plug-in designed to emulate the sounds of vintage and modern compressors, while delivering complete control of dynamic compression.
CB101 – Basic compression
CB202 – Compression with pre-filtering
CB303 – Compression with pre-filtering and static/dynamic EQ
In addition to the standard threshold and ratio controls, the actual shape and response of the compression curve can be adjusted with the Knee and BITE controls. Flexible compression control is complimented with pre-filtering and post-compression EQ.

Accurate high pass and low pass filters reduce low frequency rumble and high frequency hiss. Selectable slopes of 6, 12, 18, 24, 30 and 36 dB/Oct and frequency control range covering the entire audible spectrum make the NF575 filters extremely flexible.

The ML4000 is a high-resolution limiter and multi-band dynamics processor designed for music, mastering, post, and live sound.
The ML4000 is two plug-ins:
ML1 – Mastering Limiter
ML4 – Multi-band Gate, Expander, and Compressor fed into the ML1 mastering limiter
The ML1 mastering limiter uses a flexible brick wall look-ahead design coupled with multiple stages of limiting for superior peak detection. The unique Knee and Mode controls allow the ML1 to handle any kind of material with a variety of responses ranging from transparent to aggressive.

Revolver Convolution Reverb
Revolver is a high-powered convolution reverb that operates like no other.
It provides total impulse response control, dedicated and routable EQ, two sync-able delay lines, a reverb decay crossover network, and specialized stereo imaging for unprecedented flexibility.
Revolver provides the most compelling impulse library to date, with hundreds of sounds from rare holy grail out of production reverbs and acoustic spaces. Additional acoustic spaces and outboard gear can be modeled in a few minutes with Revolver and the Revolver impulse response tools.

Channel G Compact
Channel G Compact features calibration modes for music, post production, and models of the world’s most popular analog mixing desks.
Channel G Compact delivers the same sonic experience as Channel G with a smaller DSP footprint. The Channel G Compact user interface seamlessly integrates with the Avid S1, S4, and S6 control surfaces, the D-Control and D-Command legacy control surfaces, as well as the S6L live sound consoles.

Analog Channel emulates the sounds of high-end analog tape machines, tape, and channel amplifiers.
Analog Channel is two plug-ins:
AC101 – Emulates analog channel amplifier circuits
AC202 – Emulates analog tape machines
The AC101 configuration acts as a digital pre-amp allowing even excessive amounts of gain without digital distortion. A drive control determines where the audio “sits” in the saturation/compression region, and even the attack and release times of the distortion character are adjustable.
The AC202 configuration emulates analog tape machines. In addition to standard tape machine parameters such as bias, playback speed, and IEC1/2 equalization, AC202 offers controls well beyond the limits of the reel-world devices including adjustable low frequency roll off and head bump – independent of playback speed. The user can select from several playback head types, tape formulations, and even control the tape saturation recovery time.

The Channel G Compact user interface seamlessly integrates with the Avid S1, S4, and S6 control surfaces, the D-Control and D-Command legacy control surfaces, as well as the S6L live sound consoles.
The Channel G is three plug-ins:
G Dynamics – A fully featured console style dynamics section with an Expander / Gate, Compressor/Limiter, and a versatile filter section.
G Equalizer – A five-band professional grade console style EQ with a versatile filter section.
G Console – A combination of the G Dynamics and G Equalizer configurations.
All Channel G configurations feature calibration modes for music, post production, and models of the world’s most popular analog mixing desks.

FutzBox is a distortion and noise generator plug-in for creating low-fidelity versions of audio signals.
Typical post productions require distorted, or ‘futzed’ versions of dialog and other tracks. Simulations of radios, cell phones, and televisions are now available in a single software product.These simulations, called SIMs (Synthetic Impulse Models) provide accurate modeling in an extremely optimized format, allowing FutzBox to use less dsp power than conventional convolution based products. Furthermore, SIMs can be scaled in real-time and changed on the fly.
