The Fairchild 670 is arguably the grandaddy of all tube-based compressors, and has joined the ranks of an elite few 'hall-of-fame' pieces of hardware. This is largely due to its rarity, price, sophistication, and, above all, sound.
Estimates vary as to how many were ever produced – somewhere between five hundred and a thousand – but regardless of original numbers, very few survive today.
Overloud were fortunate enough to get their hands on not one, not two, but three different Fairchild 670 compressors in three different studios around the world!
As a result they've been able to meticulously sample each of these three units in order to create the 'Gem Comp670' plugin which allows you to get all of the power of the Fairchild 670 without the heavy price tag!
If you're on the lookout for a new virtual compressor then this is a plugin that'll you'll definitely want to check out.
