Manufacturer's Description from Other

Compression is a tool used on pretty much every recording you will ever hear, yet this extremely useful and versatile tool is often overlooked by guitar players as part of their rig. 
Other  compressor pedals are  often  limited by oversimplified controls and heavily colored sounds.  We have  created  a  truly transparent compressor, complete with all the controls found in the studio.  The result is a tool that allows for a wide range of sounds from subtly adding sustain to  getting the “quack” that country players love.
We've also included a mix knob to blend in the dry signal for an even more  transparent sound and a gain reduction meter so you know what the compressor is doing at all times.
Features
All Analog Signal Path - no digitals in here!
Extremely Transparent - Add dynamic control without altering the original tone of your instrument
3 Compression Ratios - 2:1, 4:1 and 10:1 ratios offer lots of flexibility
Attack and Release Control - allows for ultimate control over the compression characteristics
Mix - Blend uncompressed signal in with the compressed signal for parallel compression, New York Style!
Metering - Meter either gain reduction, input, or both.
True Display LEDs - Bright multi-color LEDs always let you know what the Compressor is doing.
Bass - Works great on bass!
True Bypass - The Empress Compressor employs true bypass, so you can be sure that it's not affecting the signal when disengaged.
Small Size - The enclosure measures approximately 4.5" by 3.5" by 1.5", which is delightfully small when considering all the features packed into this unit.
Beautiful Case - It has a sparkle you can't deny!
