NEXT-GENERATION GUITAR COMPRESSOR FOR EXPRESSIVE PLAYERS

Powered by BOSS's MDP technology, the CP-1X is a new type of multiband compressor for guitar that preserves the character of your instrument and technique for unlimited musical expression. Intelligent processing analyzes your signal in multiple dimensions as you play, providing advanced dynamics control that never colors or muddies your tone like typical stompbox compressors can. The simple, four-knob interface makes it easy to dial in sophisticated results, while the handy gain reduction indicator always shows you how much compression is being applied. Optimized for all types of guitars, the CP-1X offers next-generation performance for every style of music.

I love this Pedal. I think it's the perfect accessory for any pedal board, especially for amateur to moderate players --very forgiving on strumming.. no more twangs!

This takes the guess work out of compression for any guitar player. I have used countless compressors in the studio on every instrument, the issue is the fine tuning it takes to dial them in for each application. This often is required for each song. The CP-1X covers all the bases and does most of the work for you in fact it sounds amazing with the dials at 12 o'clock. I find it very musical on every guitar the 18V internal voltage supplies all the required headroom I could ask for. This is the perfect compressor for any player and sounds like a high end studio compressor.
