The MI Effects Compressor pedal is a stand-out analog compressor for guitarists using some recognizable studio features to set it apart.

Tailor the MI Audio Compressor to your taste with its powerful control set:

Level Control with Clip Indicator
The level control adjusts the strength of the input signal right at the beginning of the chain. This control is perfect for adjusting the clarity of the Compressor and tailoring the Compressor to your pickups. The LED lets you know if your signal is too hot.

This adjusts the amount of compression/sustain of the signal. This control has a wider range of sweep compared to other compressors.

Attack and Release
These controls are all about adjusting the feel and response of the Compressor pedal. Attack lets you adjust how fast the Compressor reacts, while Release controls how long the compression level is maintained.

Use this to adjust the level of the noise gate. It normally kicks in around 50%, but will vary depending on your guitar and pickups. Its response is very fast and for 99% of applications it works brilliantly. The gate also has an internal trimmer to control the release time. It's set at the factory to the minimum so it cuts off noise as quickly as possible.

The Compressor is designed to have a substantial volume output if required for level compensation, solo boosts, or overdriving amps and other pedals. Generally, the traditional use of a compressor involves setting the volume control up so that the bypass is as loud as the original signal.

The MI Effects Compressor pedal is true bypass, with a heavy-duty 3PDT footswitch and a powder-coated, silk-screened enclosure. Runs off a 9V battery or optional DC power supply with up to 25V headroom.

The MI Effects Compressor uses the highest-quality components including:

Audiophile-grade, German-made WIMA polyester and polypropylene caps for the signal path, sorted to high-tolerance better than 2.5%
Low-temperature, coefficient metal film resistors for the ultimate performance and stability
Low-ESR electrolytic for the power supply, which is also transistor-regulated for stability
Customized, sealed mini potentiometers
Custom-made amphenol jacks rated to 10A
Austrailian-made, 4-layer, through-hold plated PCB with top and bottom ground plane shielding for audio tracks

Comments about MI Audio Compressor Guitar Effects Pedal:

First of all,the input jack makes noise when you move your cord,tried different cords, same thing.I tried all sorts of different settings but the compressor does this weird initial loud attack then cuts back on volume,very annoying.It's ok if you keep playing,just don't stop.The knobs keep falling off too.Better steer clear of this one!!!
