The CompIQ MINI ONE Pro Compressor represents a simplified analog processing solution within the CompIQ series of compressors. It is specifically geared towards individuals seeking ease-of-use in operation and professional-grade sound quality, with a particular emphasis on bass and guitar applications. However, this compressor is also well-suited for use with other instruments and even vocals, provided that an appropriate microphone pre-amplifier is utilized.
No matter how you set it, the Mini One is a fine little box that does a lot of work, adding a professional sheen to your live and studio tone while freeing up pedalboard space and offering set-it-and-forget-it operation.
The MINI ONE compressor pedal is an essential component for precise and straightforward dynamic processing. Its ability to enhance playability, while preserving the instrument’s natural tone, enables it to provide exceptional clarity and musical definition. This pedal is an optimal choice for those looking to improve their musical performance with a professional-grade tool.

The simplified studio-grade mini compressor pedal
The CompIQ MINI ONE Pro Compressor represents the simplified version of the CompIQ compressor series, offering a user-friendly interface for individuals seeking a set-and-forget operation. Despite its simplicity, the MINI ONE incorporates the same superior sonic technology found in its larger counterparts, as it is built around the exceptional 4320 THAT Analog Engine®. The processing of the input signal is performed by a true RMS-level detector, which then applies accurate feed-forward compression through a high-performance Blackmer® VCA, delivering a transparent and exceptional sound quality.
The controls of the CompIQ MINI ONE include Ratio, Gain, and Dry/Wet Mix, in addition to a Sense threshold switch that provides two preset levels. These features enable the user to tailor the compressor to specific instruments or achieve varying degrees of processing.
The Side-Chain Processing function of the compressor exhibits a non-linear, high-pass characteristic that operates beyond 1KHz. This characteristic aids in balancing the potential trigger-difference between low and high-frequency energy. This feature is typically exclusive to high-end studio compressors, and is ideal for achieving a natural effect application, even at higher compression ratios. For more detailed information on this feature, please refer to the CompIQ 101 section of this page.
The Dynamic Auto Attack & Release Timing circuitry obviates the requirement for a dedicated attack switch or manual attack and release controls, producing impeccable timings for all playing styles. The timing mechanism is configured for rapid attack and gradual release, while being program-dependent, allowing swift transients to release faster, and steady signals to decay slower. On average, the release time is roughly 10-15 times the attack time. Regardless of the playing style, the dynamic auto timing of the compressor consistently delivers an exceptional sound quality by adapting to the input signal envelope.
The Becos CompIQ Mini One brings simplicity to the game, with just four controls. It also has an LED display for the gain reduction, rare in this price class.
The degree of compression is clearly indicated through a responsive 5-LED display, providing visual feedback regarding the extent to which the signal is reduced during compression. This highly valuable feature is consistently present across all our compressor models, including the MINI, and is probably unparalleled in other analog compressors of this size.
The True-Bypass routing ensures that the bass or guitar signal chain remains unaltered when the pedal is disengaged, even in the absence of power.
All analog, accurate, transparent compression
The CompIQ MINI ONE Pro Compressor is a carefully crafted audio processing device with an emphasis on enhancing the dynamic range of guitar and bass signals. However, its capabilities go beyond these instruments, as it can bring a new level of depth to any audio source with the aid of an appropriate preamp, even vocals. We believe that it is one of the most impressive mini effect pedals for guitar and bass, but its versatility extends to a multitude of other instruments, including electric acoustic guitars and basses, electric string instruments, harmonicas, brass instruments, synthesizers, and more. The CompIQ series of compressors is renowned for its exceptional qualities, which can benefit a wide range of musical applications.
In 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.
Pristine audio processing
The CompIQ series of compressors stands out for its exceptional ability to preserve the authentic voice of your instrument, be it guitar, bass or other instrument. They deliver unobstructed, pristine audio compression, all while retaining the original tonal character of the instrument. Thanks to their high dynamic range, these compressors provide natural-sounding clean tones and minimal noise, which is a testament to their unparalleled audio processing capabilities. The CompIQ compressors are free from distortions that can hinder the overall sound quality, resulting in artifact-free and crystal-clear audio output.
