Description

The simplified studio-grade mini compressor pedal

CompIQ MINI ONE Pro Compressor is the simpler interfaced compressor in the CompIQ series. It is aimed at the set-and-forget type of users, which seek simplicity in operation. The MINI ONE is featuring the same core sonic technology as its bigger brothers, being built around the top-class THAT Corp. 4320 Analog Engine® – used in rack processors made by the likes of DBX, Presonus, Dangerous Music or Revive Audio -, which ensure the highest quality VCA dynamic processing. A true RMS-level sensor measures input signal and applies accurate feed-forward compression through a transparent sounding, high-performance Blackmer® VCA, giving you the studio-like audio feeling and purity.

The CompIQ MINI ONE features controls for Ratio, Gain and Dry/Wet Mix, alongside a Sense threshold switch with two preset levels, one of which is variable with an inside-box trimmer. This gives the user the flexibility to adapt the compressor to any kind of instrument level. Compression Knee is set for gentle Soft processing, providing a subtle and transparent effect application.

The compressor’s Side-Chain Processing presents a non-linear, high-pass characteristic above 1KHz, which balances the potential trigger-difference between the energy of low and high frequency. Such a feature is usually available only in high-end studio compressors, and it is intended for a natural effect application even on higher compression ratios.

Guitar.com - Becos Effects’ CompIQ Pro Stella Compressor features rack-style controls on a stomper
Tailored for both guitar and bass, this pedal lets you achieve studio-grade compression through a set of simple controls.

Dynamic Auto Attack & Release Timing circuitry replaces the need for a dedicated attack switch or manual attack and release controls, rendering perfect timings for any playing style. The timing is set for fast attack and slower release but it is also program-dependent – fast transients are released faster, while steady signals decay slower. On average, the release time is 10-15 times the attack time. Regardless of the playing style, the dynamic auto timing of the compressor will always sound great because it’s adapting to the input signal envelope.

The amount of compression is indicated by a responsive 5-LED display, for visual feedback over how much the signal is reduced while compression takes place. The True-Bypass routing leaves bass or guitar signal chain untouched when the pedal is not engaged, even if it’s not powered.

All analog, accurate, transparent compression

CompIQ MINI ONE Pro Compressor was designed with guitar and bass in mind but make no mistake, it can add dynamic feeling to any audio signal, including vocals – with an appropriate preamp. We think it may also be among the best mini guitar and bass compressor effect pedals. Many instruments can benefit from the CompIQ series of compressor’s qualities: electric guitar & bass, electric acoustic guitar & bass, electric string instruments, harmonica, brass instruments, synthesizers, etc.

Extensive review of CompIQ MINI ONE Pro Compressor on TalkBass.com ForumIn many ways the Becos Mini One Pro has a lot in common with the Keeley. Becos trades a Threshold dial for a push button and internal trimmer. But you also get a 5 LED gain reduction media that is far superior to the Keeley Bassist’s single LED. The Becos also adds the comprehensive Dry/Wet signal dial. The Becos is also smaller. Both have an inherent transparent quality. The Mini One Pro is a remarkable little tool.

The CompIQ series of compressors is not gonna alter the magic voice of your instrument. They preserve the original guitar or bass tone while providing unobstructed, pristine audio compression, without noise, distortion or other artifacts.
