Slate Digital took all the fullness, tone, and warmth of one of the most classic vintage Opto compressors in history and blew the doors off it by adding speed, ratio, and 4 new tone control settings so you can shape your sound to perfection in seconds. Custom Opto gives you a degree of precision never before available with this kind of Opto compressor.
We pored over every aspect of classic Optos—from the components to the tubes, to the unique properties of the optical cell. We mapped every feature, obsessively modeling everything we could lay our hands on.
The result is the Slate Digital Custom Opto Compressor!

Decide how quickly the circuit responds with Speed, and dial in just the right amount of compression with Ratio. Get all the smoothness of a Classic Opto with the controls you need to hot rod your sound.
Dial in your Tone:
