Bass Compressor by Empress Effects


The original Empress Effects Compressor was an instant favourite among guitar and bass players, searching for something more than the typical oversimplified controls found on most compressor pedals.

Improving on this success, the new Bass Compressor offers the same features and controls normally only seen in high end studio equipment. Input and gain reduction metering, independent attack and release controls, a mix knob for parallel compression, an external sidechain insert - and now, a fully variable sidechain high pass filter, PLUS a two position 'tone + colour' circuit which adds gentle tone sculpting and harmonic distortion, giving your bass some delicious character.

Features
• 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 both gain reduction and input on separate meters.
• Tone + Colour - Adds mild harmonic distortion with a mid range cut or an upper mid range boost.
• Sidechain Send/Return - 3.5mm TRS jack send and return for sidechain compresson.
• Sidechain High Pass Filter - a variable high pass filter that filters low frequencies from the sidechain. The filter frequency ranges from 20Hz to 400Hz.
• Improved Low End Frequency Response - To handle those low low sounds, completely flat down to 20Hz.
• True Display LEDs - Bright multi-colour LEDs always let you know what the compressor is doing.
• True Bypass - The Empress Compressor employs true bypass, so you can be sure that it's not affecting the signal when disengaged.
• Small Size - New enclosure approximately half the size of the original compressor, which is delightfully small when considering all the features packed into this unit.
