Features & Specifications
With all the controls available in top end studio compressors, the Empress Compressor has opened new sonic doors for guitarists; ranging from truly transparent compression for dynamic control to over the top squashing. We've also included a wet/dry mix knob that allows parallel compression for increased transparency and dynamics.
All Analog Signal Path - no digitals in here!
Extremely Transparent - Add dynamic control without altering the original tone of your instrument
3 Compression Ratios - 2:1, 4:1 and 10:1 ratios offer lots of flexibility
Attack and Release Control - allows for ultimate control over the compression characteristics
Mix - Blend uncompressed signal in with the compressed signal for parallel compression, New York Style!
Metering - Meter either gain reduction, input, or both.
True Display LEDs - Bright multi-color LEDs always let you know what the Compressor is doing.
Bass - Works great on bass!
True Bypass - The Empress Compressor employs true bypass, so you can be sure that it's not affecting the signal when disengaged.
Small Size - The enclosure measures approximately 4.5" by 3.5" by 1.5", which is delightfully small when considering all the features packed into this unit.
Beautiful Case - It has a sparkle you can't deny!
