A vintage style of compression is what The Hyper Compressor was designed to produce. The ability to have a huge range of compression that sounds like the tone your guitar had before the pedal was turned on, is what The Hyper Compressor was designed to give you. This unit does not add a heavy flavor to your tone like so many compressors do. Even when set to minimum compression, a natural ring effect adds sustain to your notes and dynamics to your reverb.
Controls consist of Volume, Compression, Tone and Decay. The Volume control is pretty straight forward while the Compression control adjusts from not having any compression at all to having almost too much compression. An internal trim pot adjusts this range while the Decay control varies the length of time that notes are allowed to ring. I recommend leaving the internal adjustment at my setting as this is carefully done to produce the largest range Of compression. The tone control is used to restore the natural tone of your guitar and amp by bringing back high frequencies that may become reduced at higher compression settings. In all, The Hyper Compressor can go from super squashed to extremely subtle with a beautiful natural sounding ring.
