Here’s the lovely sounding FET and Opto (vactrol) based compressor from GOD’s BOX called ‘Lollipop’. It has a great input/output gain stage and some nice drive and saturation when pushed. You get control of threshold, ratio, attack and release with external CV input and level for side chain (works well with audio or just triggers) and CV input and level control for threshold. Take this video as a tutorial and series of ideas on how to make use of a compressor, there’s some production tips in the video that will hopefully help people get the most out of any compressor, but of course grab a Lollipop it sounds great and I want another one! 🙂
Note – all the examples here are a bit more heavy handy with compression than you may want to use them. That’s purely as demoing a compressor over YouTube is really hard, so I wanted to make sure things were as obvious as possible while also showing the range of the device.
