The CompIQ MINI sidechain circuit is being upgraded with a “Deep” -12db@130Hz High Pass Filter option. A Normal / Deep selection switch is being added.
The compressor’s Side Chain Filter processing will have two options. The Normal setting presents a non-linear characteristic above 1KHz, which balances the potential trigger-difference between the energy of low and high frequency. Such a feature that resembles the human hearing is usually available only in high-end studio compressors, and it is intended for a natural effect application even on high compression ratios. Additionally, the Deep setting introduces a Side Chain Filter with a gentle high-pass slope (reaching -12dB at 130Hz) which is very suitable for bass instrument. This setting option helps prevent the triggering of the compression too early by the high amplitude of the low-frequency content. As a result, a part of the lows passes through without being compressed, giving the sound more energy and a natural punch.
