Studio-grade Compression for Your Pedalboard
Replicating your favorite recorded guitar tones on your live rig can be challenging, especially since many of them were created in part using rack-mounted hardware processors, which you can’t easily tote onstage. In fact, one of the secrets behind some of the most memorable guitar tones is the use of a high-quality studio compressor in the signal chain to add impact, weight, and shine. Origin Effects Cali76 Compact Deluxe compressor pedal takes that concept and sizes it down for your pedalboard. Based on a classic FET-style compressor, the Cali76 Compact Deluxe provides a level of control uncommon among pedal compressors, offering ratio, attack, and release knobs, on top of input and output gain knobs. Gently reign in your dynamics with slow attack and fast release settings. Dial up the ratio to draw out some top-end spank. Or hit it with fast attack and slow release for a rounded, smashed tone with miles of sustain. Even better, take that smashed tone and blend it in behind the uncompressed signal; it’s a trick that guitarists at Sweetwater like to use to retain top-end detail while fattening up the mids and bottom end. Like all of Origin Effect’s pedals, the Cali76 Compact Deluxe comes housed in a hand-polished brushed stainless-steel enclosure that looks beautiful and can take a beating!
