Whirlwind OC Bass Optical Compressor The OC BASS Optical Compressor is both a compressor, as well as a limiter - (depending on how you have it switched). With three pre programmable attack speeds, you can switch from a super fast, thumping grab, to a long and lush compressed sustain, with plenty of adjustment in between. The OC BASS comes with adjustable input and outputs, so you can easily tailor the exact amount of punch and sustain you desire. Set the attack switch to med in the limiter mode, and turn your thumb into a registered weapon of funk. Your bass will thank you! Optical compressor that uses a light and a light detection element to sense changes in signal gain Compressor and limiter modes help your bass performances blend into the mix by evening out the louder and softer levels in your playing, smoothing out the dynamic range Three pre-defined attack rates - "fast", "medium" and "slow," make the attacks in your playing more pronounced to various degrees. This can be useful to accentuate string attacks when playing quietly or when playing with a drummer to help your performance sound more "locked" with the kick drum Input control adjusts amount of gain going into the compressor or limiter and the amount of gain reduction. Output knob adjusts the overall volume of the pedal. Adjust these two controls to find the appropriate amount of volume and signal reduction to make the dynamics in your playing sound smoother and more even Gain reduction LEDs display the amount the signal is being attenuated due to compression or limiting in dBs Whirlwind OC Bass Optical Compressor Features: Compressor and Limiter Modes Adjustable Attack Rate Adjustable Input into Limiter/Compressor Output Controls to Adjust Pedal Volume Three Gain Reduction LEDs Includes 18V Wall Adapter

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I do highly recommend this compressor. It does not 'color' the sound or drastically affect the signal chain. The input and output knobs do a great job in selecting how much of the signal is to be compressed or limited. easy to use , the LED lights provide a visual idea of the compression. I have it at the end of my signal chain right before my amplifier and it does exactly what I expected it to do all transparently and naturally. Construction wise it is very rugged and well put together.
