Hybrid Compressor. 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.
Blend 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.
Time 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.
Output Sets the overall output volume of the unit.
Compression Sets the overall amount of compression. This control also affects the internal makeup gain.
Ratio Adjusts the amount of compression.
Mode Selects the unit’s Mode (BUS, FET, or SYM).
