Expert researchers and designers at Darkglass Electronics have combined their signature sound with cutting-edge digital technologies. This combination greatly enhances the sonic possibilities and intuitiveness of the Hyper Luminal Compressor pedal.
The Hyper Luminal Compressor embodies this like no other pedal in the industry: by digitally modeling the side-chain circuits in some of the most legendary compressors in history, we were able to capture their essence and characteristic behavior while keeping a completely analog signal path.
The pedal ships with 3 selectable models (more to be added):
BUS: Modeled after the Solid State Logic Bus Compressor
FET: Inspired by the legendary 1176
SYM: Our, now discontinued Super Symmetry, transcends in the digital realm
But that is not all! Instead of using mechanical switches (because let's face it, switches are boring), to select the compression Ratio and Mode we implemented touch-through-metal sensors.
The sensors in the Hyper Luminal Compressor detect when and where the chassis is touched and changes parameters accordingly: this technology not only provides a very new, intimate and pleasant user experience, setting it apart from any other pedal in the market, but it does so while operating with extreme consistency and, unlike mechanical switches, it is virtually unbreakable.
