Darkglass Hyper Luminal


Darkglass 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.

The Blend knob 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. The Time knob sets the time constants (Attack and Release). You can use the Darkglass Suite to fine tune and custom map the time constants. The Output knob sets the overall output volume of the unit. The Compression knob sets the overall amount of compression. This control also affects the internal makeup gain.

The pedal has two touch sensors. The ratio sensor adjusts the amount of compression, the mode sensor selects the unit’s Mode (BUS, FET, or SYM). There three different compression types: Solid State Logic Bus, FET compression and Super Symmetry 115 GeV compression.

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.
