New Release: Darkglass Hyper Luminal Hybrid Compressor
The Hyper Luminal Compressor features the first hybrid design in a compressor pedal: an analog VCA controlled by a digital side-chain allowed us to capture and include the characters of some of the most legendary compressors in history while keeping the signal path completely analog.
The pedal also features a gorgeous 10-LED gain reduction meter and four knobs: Blend: Mixes the clean and effected signals. Time: Sets the time constants (Attack and Release). Fine tuning and mapping can be done through the Darkglass Suite, so users can assign different constants to each model. Compression: Sets the amount of compression. Level: Sets the overall output volume of the unit.
As for I/O the hyper Luminal Compressor features: Input: 1/4" connector for the instrument. Output: 1/4" connector for the ampliﬁer or next effect in the chain. 9VDC: Center negative, 250mA, 9VDC only. The Hyper Luminal doubles the operation voltage internally to 18V for extra headroom. USB: A Micro USB B connector allows you to connect the pedal to PC/Mac to load upcoming compressor models, set Time settings and other parameters.
