Put a pro-level compressor beneath your foot!

The Carl Martin Compressor/Limiter Pedal was specially developed to incorporate the same features and sonic clarity found in high-quality professional studio compressors. To achieve this Carl Martin incorporates a variable threshold, compression ratio, and attack/release controls and of course, a gain level.

General Guidelines on the use of the Compressor/Limiter:

Threshold: Working anti clockwise, determines how much of the signal will be compressed. This is also dependent on how much signal is fed from the instrument.

Comp: Working clockwise, determines how much compression is applied to the signal allowed by the threshold setting.

Resp: Working clockwise, determines the attack/release times, going from slow to fast. In general, if you want to hear the compressor working with a crisp attack you should use slow times. If you require silent limiting, you should use fast times.

Gain: Working clockwise, sets the overall gain.

Busy: Indicates the amount of compression being applied, even in bypass mode. The brighter it gets, the more compression is being applied.

The Carl Martin Compressor/Limiter Pedal is ruggedly built by hand in Denmark.

  • Comp: Working clockwise, determines how much compression is applied to the signal allowed by the threshold setting.
  • Gain: Working clockwise, sets the overall gain.
  • Resp: Working clockwise, determines the attack/release times, going from slow to fast. In general, if you want to hear the compressor working with a crisp attack you should use slow times. If you require just a silent limiting you should use fast times.

amazing, not just as a compressor

By Erez Goren

from Israel

Comments about Carl Martin Compressor/Limiter Pedal:

As mentioned, this pedal is not true bypass, which normally would turn me off, but I tried it, and while being completely transparent as a compressor, it shapes your tone in this subtle way but enough to make a difference, and I love the sound I get through it.

The best compressor I've ever used, period.

By Tony B.

from MPLS. MN.

Comments about Carl Martin Compressor/Limiter Pedal:

This pedal is NOT true bypass, but I don't care. It is on all the time. I've tried all the comps out there, including the Keeley, and this is the absolute best, most transparent one available. I love the built in power supply, eliminating the need for the "wall wart". You just plug'er in like a toaster. Creamy sustain and jangly chime are easy to dial in, with the manual. A real champ.
