The Super Symmetry offers all the transparency and precision of a modern compressor with the twist that its inherent envelope effect is reminiscent of old school compressors.
WHY SUPER SYMMETRY?
We chose the name because it represents a model of the universe in which all its secrets are available for us to discover. The idea of open possibilities, transparency and precision represent very well the philosophy under which we designed this pedal.
BLEND Like all of our pedals, allows for mixing the compressed and clean signals, ideal for fast compression adjustment (to reduce it you can dial back the blend and avoid having to readjust your Input and Output levels for unity gain).
INPUT Adjusts the 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 until gain reduction begins (higher settings will translate into faster Attack times).
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 (Peak Reduction).
OUTPUT Sets the output volume level of the unit.
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.
