"Incredibly versatile compression and tone….this thing is deep!" - Ryan Hewitt: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blink 182, Tom Petty, The Avett Brothers

The pleasing FET harmonic distortion, and some transformer saturation options really help to add that analog character. It's great on aggressive time settings and applying a lot of gain reduction, but can also be extremely transparent. The auto modes engage two completely separate side-chain circuits that change the way the compressor behaves, giving you sounds that aren't possible with conventional attack and release settings.

True bypass switching makes meaningful comparisons against the original signal quick and easy, and parallel compression is only a knob twist away!

Features:
  • All Analog Signal Path - no digitals in here!
  • Sidechain HPF - High pass the sidechain at 120 Hz or 220 Hz
  • True Bypass - so you can be sure that it's not affecting the signal when disengaged
  • Super Fast Attack Speeds  - Dial in attack speeds down to 50 microseconds
  • Mix Knob for Parallel Compression - Blend in dry signal for New York style compression
  • 10 segment LED Gain Reduction Meter
  • Selectable Output Transformer can be loaded down for some old school analog character
  • Use the active balanced output for a pristine signal path or engage the output transformer for some added warmth. Load down the output transformer for even more old school analog character and some pleasant saturation.
  • 3 Ratios - 3:1 gives great transparent compression for evening out dynamics. 6:1 gives great control and can be pretty aggressive when doing lots of gain reduction. 12:1 is approaching limiting and can be very useful when you need to sit something in the mix or hit it hard for tons of character.
