The Hyper Luminal Compressor features the first hybrid design in a compressor pedal: an analog VCA controlled by a digital side-chain allowed us to capture and include the characters of some of the most legendary compressors in history while keeping the signal path completely analog.























































































































At Darkglass Electronics, 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 Hybrid · Compressor embodies this like no other pedal in the industry. By digitally modelling the side-chain circuits in some of the most legendary compressors in history, we were able to capture their essence and characteristic behaviour, all while keeping the completely pure and authentic analog signal path that Darkglass is famous for.


The pedal ships with 3 selectable models:

BUS: Modelled after the Solid State Logic® Bus Compressor

FET: Inspired by the legendary UA 1176®.

SYM: Our own Super Symmetry, now discontinued due to component availability, but transcended in the digital realm


But that’s not all! Instead of using mechanical switches (because let’s face it, switches are boring), to select the compression Ratio and Mode in the Hyper Luminal Compressor we implemented touch-through-metal sensors.


These sensors 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 on the market, but it does so while operating with extreme consistency and, unlike mechanical switches, is virtually unbreakable.


With the free Darkglass Suite for PC/Mac you can to connect the pedal via USB to load additional and upcoming compressor models, set Time settings and adjust other parameters.


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 you can assign different constants to each model.

Compression: Sets the amount of compression.

Level: Sets the overall output volume of the unit.


Although the Hyper Luminal runs at 9V, it doubles the operation voltage internally to 18V for extra headroom, so audio from even the most powerful bass preamp or line level signals like synths etc. will pass through crystal clear.


Designed for both studio and live use, Hyper Luminal Hybrid Compressor will take your compression to a whole new (yet smoothed out) level.


Features

Blend

Mixes the clean and effected signals. Unlike our distortions, it is placed before the Output control. So the Hyper Luminal can also be used as a transparent booster with this control at minimum.

Time

Sets the time constants (Attack and Release). You can use the Darkglass Suite to fine tune and custom map the time constants, you can also assign different behaviours for each Mode.

Output

Sets the overall output volume of the unit.

Compression

Sets the overall amount of compression. This control also affects the internal makeup gain.

Ratio

Adjusts the amount of compression.

Mode

Selects the unit's Mode (BUS, FET, or SYM)

USB

A Micro USB B connector allows you to connect the pedal to PC/Mac to set Time settings, parameters, and future firmware upgrades via the Darkglass Suite.

DIMENSIONS

75x111x43 mm (2.95x4.37x1.77 in)

WARNING


The Hyper Luminal Hybrid Compressor has a current draw of 250mA. Only use a regulated 9V DC adapter with a center-negative plug. Due to ecological reasons, it does not accept batteries. Unregulated power supplies and/or higher voltages may result in suboptimal noise performance and even damage your unit, voiding the warranty.
