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

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

Far beyond other Fairchild emulations, only the UAD Fairchild Collection is based on accurate circuit models of “golden‑reference” units from legendary Ocean Way Studios, giving you all the rich tube tone of the unattainable iconic hardware.

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.

      Harmonics and control

      I use it to give analog harmonics.
      Or to control instruments and sounds.
      I like to use it on bass and piano.

      Warm enough to use as a coat

      Very versatile plug-in that can give you a subtle flavor or be the main ingredient depending how you use it. Highly recommend

      Great compressor!

      Excellent in working on the drum bus. Good voice warming, works very nicely on the master bus.

      Very good

      I actually don't even care if it sounds like the real hardware or not, because this just sounds so good. It pretty much makes many other tube compressor plugins sound like a joke.

      Legendary compressor

      It's legendary and it is for a reason: if it's right for your song you'll quickly realize the warmth and glue it brings.

      Lot of harmonics and warmness

      I had great result with the 660 on bass recorded DI (Beatles style), and the 670 on the whole mix : just with a little bit of compression ( around -1db) and 50% mix it add warmness, harmonics, body to the mix and tames harshness (a trick I did read in an interview with sound enginer andrew scheps)

      Smooth sound!

      Sound good on instruments and mix bus for what I’ve done so far.

      This is the sound you looking for when you say “analog”.
      Well done Guys!

      Great Collection of Timeless Classics

      Loved the trial of these and had to jump on them over the holidays. Smooth and easy to use. Have one on every mix now!! Would buy these again for sure. Try them, you will not be disappointed.

      Sounds like a classic

      Love the Fairchild sound so much. The 175-b is still my favorite color comp but the Fairchild is a close second and sounds so tasty on acoustic guitar and drum overheads. Love it so glad I took the plunge

      Fairchild Tube to transformer heaven

      Even when not pushing it hard the Fairchild brings a wonderful mojo to the party that is hard to describe.

      Instant vibe!

      I’m a Beatles nut, so these make it into every session. 660 for the goo, 670 for the glue!

      Creamy Mojo

      I sometimes use this babe as third (and Last) compressor on my lead vocal - just slightly to add some extra cream!
