Studio grade audio compression from such a tiny pedal? Yes.

CompIQ MINI Pro Compressor is a unique featured audio compression pedal, with qualities rivaled only by expensive studio compressors. It provides the amount of control and versatility needed for professional dynamic processing, while preserving the warm response and transparency of analog circuitry.

ALL ANALOG AUDIO CIRCUIT

Built around a high performance Blackmer® VCA, a true RMS-level detector and FET IC's, the compressor matches studio quality warmth and transparency in dynamic processing.

MANUAL CONTROLS

Threshold, Ratio & Make-up Gain controls allow a perfect dosage of compression, which makes this pedal suitable for usage with a wide range of musical instruments.

SOFT/HARD KNEE COMPRESSION

A feature rarely available in guitar pedals, the Compression Knee permits subtle or evident audio expressions, for an endless variation of compression flavors.

DYNAMIC AUTO TIMING

Compression Attack and Release timings are automatic and dynamic. Fast transients or steady signals are each handled differently. Further, you can chose from Fast or Slower response timings.

DRY / WET MIX

When more compression is needed, tamed frequencies can be recovered by mixing Dry and Wet audio signal; known as parallel compression.

COMPRESSION AMOUNT DISPLAY

The exact amount of compression is indicated by an accurate and responsive 5-LED display, which takes it's information directly from the RMS-level detector.

CompIQ MINI Pro Compressor

All analog. Accurate. Transparent. Versatile. Powerful.

CIQ-2 COMPIQ MINI PRO COMPRESSOR

STUDIO QUALITY COMPRESSOR IN SMALLEST POSSIBLE PACKAGE

CompIQ MINI is an all analog studio grade compressor featuring Ratio, Threshold & Make-up Gain controls, Soft/Hard Knee compression selector, Fast/Slower Dynamic Auto Attack & Release timings which respond to playing dynamics, and Dry/Wet Mix control for a perfect blend of processed and clean signal (aka parallel compression).

A true RMS-level detector constantly measures input signal and applies accurate compression through a transparent sounding, high performance Blackmer® VCA. The exact amount of compression is indicated by a responsive 5-LED display, for a visual feedback over how much the signal is processed. This information is taken directly from the RMS-level sensor.

The True Bybass signal routing of the footswitch leaves audio untouched when pedal is not engaged, even if it is not powered.

Complementing Blackmer® VCA transparency, the FET active circuitry along with WIMA audio capacitors and low tolerance passive components render natural sounding musical compressions, without coloring, distortion or artifacts. Click here for complete technical specifications.

GUITAR COMPRESSION AT ITS BEST

ALL ANALOG. ACCURATE. TRANSPARENT COMPRESSION.

CompIQ MINI Pro Compressor was designed with guitar in mind, but make no mistake, it can add warmth and dynamic feeling to any audio signal, including vocals - with an appropriate preamp. The variety of instruments that can benefit from CompIQ qualities is huge: electric guitar & bass, string instruments, harmonica, brass instruments, synthesizers, etc., and all is due to the powerful manual controls, compression options, circuit design and fabrication.

The combination of Ratio, Threshold, Make-up Gain and Dry/Wet Mix manual controls along with Compression Knee and Fast/Slower Dynamic Timings selectable options, make this tiny little box a mighty weapon of dynamic processing. You will simply not gonna find this many features and this quality of sound in such a pedal form factor, anywhere.

We prepared video demos with several guitars including accoustic guitars, and explored more playing styles to reveal the musical qualities of the CompIQ MINI Pro Compressor.

How we ship?

 

Shipping worldwide from Romania/EU

We ship worldwide if your country is supported by carrier - Romanian Post - using International letter mail service with acknowledgement of receipt (A.R.) with Tracking Number, which is a small package economy service. If your country is not supported or has an extra shipping fee, we will let you know before shipping. Here is what you need to know about shipping:

  • We ship fast, from stock, no longer than within 2 business days from purchase date, unless otherwise notified by email.
  • We will ship the package to your Paypal recorded address. Be sure is the correct address, or make a note into the transaction comments, if you want the package delivered to a different address.
  • We record carrier and tracking information under Paypal transaction details and this information is also available in YOUR Paypal account.
  • While on Romanian territory, parcel can be tracked on Romanian Post.
  • In transit, parcel cannot always be tracked, although you could try this third party tracking system.
  • When parcel enters the destination country, it can be tracked again on the corresponding national Post's website - if such a service is available (i.e. www.usps.com for USA or www.royal-mail.com for Great Britain, etc.).
  • Based on shipping history, we estimate that delivery may take around 15 business days to reach destinations in USA and European countries, but many times it will take less.
  • For remote destinations such Australia, South America or Asian countries shipping takes longer. We cannot estimate, nor guarantee, but some parcels were confirmed delivered within less than four weeks.
  • Delays may be expected before, during and after major holidays like Christmas, Easter, national day offs, etc.
  • If you would like to pay for faster UPS or DHL services, please ask us for exact quote for your address, although it might not worth it.
  • We do not put any selling papers in the package nor declare value, but buyer is responsible for customs fees, if charged by each country's authority. EU destination countries will definitelly NOT charge custom fees because we ship from within European Union.
