The Hyper Luminal Compressor features the first hybrid design in a compressor pedal: an analog VCA controlled by a digital side-chain allowed us to capture and include the characters of some of the most legendary compressors in history while keeping the signal path completely analog.
Mixes the clean and effected signals. Unlike our distortions, it is placed before the Output control. So the Hyper Luminal can also be used as a transparent booster with this control at minimum.
Sets the time constants (Attack and Release). You can use the Darkglass Suite to fine tune and custom map the time constants, you can also assign different behaviours for each Mode.
Sets the overall output volume of the unit.
Sets the overall amount of compression. This control also affects the internal makeup gain.
Adjusts the amount of compression.
Selects the unit’s Mode (BUS, FET, or SYM).
Adjust the amount of compression ratio.
- BUS: 2:1, 4:1, 10:1, 15:1
- FET: 2:1, 4:1, 8:1, 20:1, “ALL IN”
- SYM: Based on different settings of the Super Symmetry · 115 GeV Compressor.
Selects between three different models:
- BUS: Modeled after the Solid State Logic ® Bus compressor.
- FET: Inspired by the legendary 1176®.
- SYM: Our discontinued Super Symmetry · 115 GeV Compressor.
By using the desktop version of the Darkglass Suite you can adjust the time and attack settings of each mode, the side chain parallel high pass filter, the mode of the release and attack settings and enable or disable the “guitar” mode.
