Darkglass Symmetry Compressor




The Darkglass Super Symmetry offers all the transparency and precision of the modern compressor but with the warmth and flexibility of an old school tube amp. This is the sweetest most musical compressor we have ever heard.  



Blend: Mix between the compressed and clean signal, ideal for fast compression adjustment (to reduce it you can dial back the blend and avoid messing up with your input and output levels). 

Input: Adjusts the input gain on the compressor. Besides working great for ensuring clean operation, it also allows for adjusting the threshold over which the compressor starts reducing gain. Higher input settings will result in higher levels of compression.

 Attack: Sets the time under which gain reduction begins.

 Release: Sets the time after which the signal goes back to pre-gain-reduction levels. Higher release settings will hold the compressed signal for shorter time.

 Compression: Sets the amount of compression (Gain Reduction). It interacts heavily with the input knob (the higher the input the earlier and harder the ratio knob will compress).

Output: Sets the output volume level of the unit.

 "The Super Symmetry is everything I always wanted on a compressor” he states. “I always felt that compressors that messed too much with my character and, for the Super Symmetry we worked a lot in finding a happy middle ground: It offers all the transparency and precision a modern compressor should, but the way it reacts, the envelope effect of it reminds me of some of my favorite old school compressors!”


The Super Symmetry has a current draw of 30mA. 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.
