Hyper Luminal · Hybrid Compressor, Ships in September!

A new era in hybrid compression.

We have made it our mission to combine our analog expertise and signature sound with cutting-edge, digital technologies, not to  replace,  but  to  enhance  the  sonic  possibilities  and intuitiveness of the next generation of Darkglass products.
The  Hyper  Luminal  Compressor  embodies  this  like  no  other pedal  in  the  industry:  by  digitally  modeling  the  side-chain circuits in some of the most legendary compressors in history, we  were  able  to  capture  their  essence  and  characteristic behavior while keeping a completely analog signal path.

The pedal ships with 3 selectable models (more to be added):
BUS: Modeled after the Solid State Logic® Bus Compressor.
FET: Inspired by the legendary 1176®.
SYM: Our, now discontinued Super Symmetry, transcends in the digital realm.

But  that  is  not  all!  Instead  of  using  mechanical  switches
(because  let's  face  it,  switches  are  boring),  to  select  the compression  Ratio  and  Mode  we  implemented touch-through-metal sensors.
The sensors in the Hyper Luminal Compressor detect when and where  the  chassis  is  touched  and  changes  parameters accordingly:  this  technology  not  only  provides  a  very  new, intimate and pleasant user experience, setting it apart from any other  pedal  in  the  market,  but  it  does  so  while  operating  with extreme  consistency  and,  unlike  mechanical  switches,  it  is virtually unbreakable.

The pedal also features a gorgeous 10-LED gain reduction meter and four knobs:
Blend: Mixes the clean and effected signals.
Time: Sets the time constants (Attack and Release). Fine tuning and mapping can be done through the Darkglass Suite, so users can assign different constants to each model.
Compression: Sets the amount of compression.
Level: Sets the overall output volume of the unit.

As for I/O the hyper Luminal Compressor features:
Input: 1/4" connector for the instrument.
Output:  1/4"  connector  for  the  ampli?er  or  next  effect  in  the chain.
9VDC: Center negative, 250mA, 9VDC only. The Hyper Luminal doubles  the  operation  voltage  internally  to  18V  for  extra headroom.
USB: A Micro USB B connector allows you to connect the pedal to  PC/Mac  to  load  upcoming  compressor  models,  set  Time
settings and other parameters.
