Add the Iconic Tone of Two Compressors

Add the Iconic Tone of Two Compressors

The Fairchild 670 and companion, the Fairchild 660, have defined some of popular music’s most revered sounds. Renowned for its aggressiveness, the 660 punches up piano, bass, and guitar, tracks, while the flagship 670 is a full stereo compressor that injects vibe and color onto channels, final mixes, and even masters.

The Closest You Can Get to Vintage Fairchilds in a Plug‑In

Blend Sounds with the Wet/Dry Mix Control

Blend Sounds with the Wet/Dry Mix Control

The Mix control lets you blend your unprocessed signal with the compressed signal, opening worlds of textural possibilities on everything from a drum bus to a mix bus.

Enhance Drums with Sidechain Filters

Enhance Drums with Sidechain Filters

Punch up your drum bus without triggering the threshold of the compressor with the kick drum, for drums with max impact using the Fairchild's Sidechain Filters.

Add Grit with the Headroom Control

Add Grit with the Headroom Control

The Headroom (HR) control can be increased to make mastering applications a breeze, raising the gain reduction threshold and lowering distortion. Conversely, you can decrease headroom, lowering the gain reduction threshold and raising distortion for grittier textures that work on everything from vocals and drums to guitar and bass.

      Takes it to another level

      You can drop this on a 2 bus or even a tracking situation and it definitely increases the vibe!

      Yes: it has THAT sound, but you have to be connected to the internet to use native versions

      I used a hardware 660 many years ago during some sessions in Nashville. Since then, I've wanted THAT sound on lots of other projects, but haven't been able to replicate it. These plugins are the closest I ever recall getting. They are fairly low in CPU usage, too, which makes them suitable for moderate mixing uses without having to bounce/freeze/print stems all over the place. Very nice to have quick access like that.

      The one complaint -- and this is why I knock off a star -- is that you have to be connected to the internet to use the native versions. I generally turn off my network connection while recording, but that disables these plugins after a short time. So, every few hours, I need to reconnect and refresh everything in UA connect.

      Must have for vocals

      I won’t track vocals without this.
      Sounds like the records that made me want to make records.
      Your fav pre + tube EQ + Fairchild = warm sonic bliss

      Use it for Voice Over!

      By far the best compressor/limiter for Voice Over and Audio Book Production! Smooths out those digital nasties in this type of audio work. Adds a soft fidelity to spoken word, as a trick, use it with no compression, just going through the circuits and tubes, adds an beautiful ambient halo of sorts.......
