Darkglass Hyper Luminal · Hybrid Compressor: a new era in hybrid compression
The highly acclaimed Super Symmetry pedal offered all the transparency and precision of a modern compressor, with the desirability of old classic designs and their inherent envelope effects. Sadly, due to component shortages, it has now had to be discontinued.
However, Darkglass Electronics never sits still and the company has made it their mission to combine their 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, including their own, they were able to capture their essence and characteristic behaviour, all while keeping the completely pure and authentic analog signal path that Darkglass Electronics is rightly famous for.
