How to set up your compressor for fat solos, country picking, funky rhythm, and everything inbetween

Cali76 Compact

Cali76-C-Sample-Setting-1

Percussive & Lively

A slow attack time allows the compressor to accentuate the initial transient of any given note. Fast release allows the compressor to fully recover between notes, so that every phrase and chord will take on a percussive quality. Low ratio keeps compression artifacts/distortion to a minimum.

Cali76-C-Sample-Setting-2

Dynamic Control

A fast attack time allows the compressor to catch transients early on. A slow release time stops the compressor from pumping, making gain reduction much more stable. Compression is natural sounding and playing dynamics are balanced between melody and chordal passages.

Cali76-C-Sample-Setting-3

Country Pickin’

Fairly slow attack to get that audible “pluck”. Fast release allows the compressor to recover quickly, in order to respond fully to every note played. The high ratio setting allows for maximum squash. Dig in with your pick and the compressor will respond in a rewarding way!

Cali76 Compact Deluxe

Cali76-CD-Sample-Setting-1

Percussive & Lively

A slow attack time allows the compressor to accentuate the initial transient of any given note. Fast release allows the compressor to fully recover between notes, so that every phrase and chord will take on a percussive quality. Low ratio keeps compression artifacts/distortion to a minimum.

Cali76-CD-Sample-Setting-2

Dynamic Control

A fast attack time allows the compressor to catch transients early on. A slow release time stops the compressor from pumping, making gain reduction much more stable. Compression is natural sounding and playing dynamics are balanced between melody and chordal passages.

Cali76-CD-Sample-Setting-3

Parallel Compression

A best of both worlds approach! Blend compressed and dry signals for increased sensitivity & sustain yet with a full sense of dynamic integrity. For players who want a fattened tone but without having the life compressed out of their carefully crafted dynamic playing style.

Cali76 Compact Bass

Cali76-CB-Sample-Setting-1

Percussive, Lively & Fat

A slow attack time allows the compressor to accentuate the initial
transient of any given note. Fast release allows the compressor to fully recover between notes, so that every phrase and chord will take on a percussive quality.  Low ratio keeps compression artifacts/distortion to a minimum. High HPF results in fattened low bass frequencies.

Cali76-CB-Sample-Setting-2

Dynamic Control

Medium attack time allows the compressor to catch transients early on without becoming too aggressive. Medium release time stops the compressor from pumping. Compression is natural and levels are balanced between various techniques. Medium HPF setting results in honest translation of low string player dynamics

Cali76-CB-Sample-Setting-3

Parallel Compression

A best of both worlds approach! Blend compressed and dry signals for increased sensitivity & sustain yet with a full sense of dynamic integrity. For players who want a sensitive feel without having the life compressed out of their carefully crafted dynamic playing style. HPF is disabled for equal compression across all strings

SlideRIG Compact

SlideRIG-C-Sample-Setting-1

Conventional Compression

Here we have the blend dial set anti-clockwise for a single stage of compression. Basically the same signal path as our Cali76 pedal. Great as a general guitar compressor, to smooth out dynamics and make your guitar feel a little more sensitive and alive. Ultra versatile.

SlideRIG-C-Sample-Setting-2

Dual Stage Compression/Limiting

Classic SlideRIG dual-chained compression. Little Feat tone! Your guitar will be ultra sensitive and sustain will be vast. As you turn up the In dial, compression & sensitivity will increase, as will pickup induced noise. This must be taken into consideration, especially in a live scenario.

SlideRIG-C-Sample-Setting-3

Medium Compression

A best of both worlds approach! Blend Cali76 and SlideRIG signals for increased sensitivity & sustain yet with more of a sense of dynamic integrity. For players who want a fattened tone but with less “squish”.

Cali76 Standard, TX & TX-L

Cali76-Origin-Effects-Boutique-Compressor-TX-Settings-a

Subtle Compression

Medium attack time allows the compressor to catch transients early on without becoming too aggressive. Medium release time stops the compressor from pumping. Compression is natural and levels are balanced between various techniques.  Compression is natural sounding and playing dynamics are balanced between melody and chordal passages.

Percussive Compression

A slow attack time allows the compressor to accentuate the initial transient of any given note. Fast release allows the compressor to fully recover between notes, so that every phrase and chord will take on a percussive quality. Low ratio keeps compression artifacts/distortion to a minimum.

Spongy Compression

The compressor will kick in right at the start of each note giving making the compression effect very noticeable. Great for evening-out dynamics when soloing.
