Carl Martin Compressor/Limiter has been specially developed to incorporate the same features and sonic clarity found in high quality professional studio compressors. To achieve this Carl Martin incorporated a variable threshold, variable compression ratio, variable attack and release controls and of course, a gain level.

General Guidelines on the use of the Compressor/Limiter:

  • Threshold: Working anti clockwise, determines how much of the signal will be compressed. This is also dependent on how much signal is fed from the instrument.
  • Comp: Working clockwise, determines how much compression is applied to the signal allowed by the threshold setting.
  • Resp: Working clockwise, determines the attack/release times, going from slow to fast. In general, if you want to hear the compressor working with a crisp attack you should use slow times. If you require just a silent limiting you should use fast times.
  • Gain: Working clockwise, sets the overall gain.
  • Busy: Indicates the amount of compression being applied, even in bypass mode. The brighter it gets, the more compression is being applied.
The Carl Martin Compressor/Limiter is used by: Andy Timmons,- Pete Thorn,- John Petrucci, John Jorgenson, Rafael Moriera, Michael Thompson, Tim Pierce, Johnny Marr and many many more.
