Dynamics play an important role in music. They help to convey emotion, whether it' a sultry blues solo or the unrelenting gallop of unfettered metal. But uncontrolled dynamics can take all your best intentions and turn them into so much, well¦mush. That' where compression comes in, softening loud sounds and boosting low signal levels to keep everything more uniform. So, a compressor' main job is to make every note the same volume.
Ever notice how some strings on your guitar or bass sound louder than others? This is partly due to physics. Strings with lower mass just don™t put out as much volume as the heavier ones. When used properly, a compressor makes all of the strings the same volume. Compressors are also great for slap-style bass players, making thumb slaps, string pulls and muted notes all the same volume, for an extremely percussive effect.
Just twist the dedicated Output dial to determine how much volume you want it to kick out, then adjust the Sensitivity dial to determine the level where everything from delicate strumming to aggressive picking will be heard with equal presence. Whether you're ready to tear up the countryside with some down-home chicken-pickin' or melt faces with a searing metal solo, the DC9 will change your idea of ideal tone. The blue status LED tells you when the DC9 is on, while the true hardware on/off switch maintains the highest quality signal integrity in bypass mode. You can power it with a 9V battery or a DC power supply (not included).
When your music is too good to be ignored, play it through the Dynamics Compressor DC9. Your sound will be impossible to miss!

Comments about Behringer DC9 Compressor Pedal:
Hello fellow musicians. Let me tell you before hand this pedal worked for me. I spent quite a bit of time around 2 months reviewing and trying out a great variety of compressor and sustain pedals, and I heard bad and good stuff about the Behringer DC9. I was truly uneasy whether or not to order it (Since my local Guitar Center store didn't have them in stock). In the end I bought it and let me tell you it really surprised me. I play a great variety of genres from Fusion, Jazz, Bossa nova, Spanish music, classic rock, Metal(Thrash-Progressive-Death-Black...), Ambient and so on. I plugged the pedal to my Bugera 333XL Infinium, my Ibanez RG321 and started playing around with it. The variety of sound I got out of it were incredible. The DC9 It's an easy pedal to use with only two knobs being the Sensitivity and output knob and both of them were really sensitive to the changes I made. I tried it with Clean, Crunch and lead settings, all different and it just provided me with an incredible amount of sustain and it boost my volumes without sacrificing one or presence. It literally gave me more of a mid-range boost which I liked a lot and it even sort of cleared my sound. I heard online this pedal in specific was best for clean settings however when I played with my crunch and lead it actually gave me a pretty cool sound I hadn't gotten from any other compressor pedal. Obviously not every item its always perfect. The only bad thing I might have to say about this pedal is that it produced a little more of white noise and hiss, however its nothing a Noise gate or noise suppressor can't take care of. Eventually I plugged in my Boss NS-2 and it took away both hiss and white noise. As for the durability I've had it for 1 year already and have toured, practice, and gigged with it both studio and performances and its still in great shape. Overall this is a Pedal I would surely recommend to a friend or fellow musician.
