Compressor/Limiters are very useful devices for increasing voice sustain and for containing signal peaks. But until now, the attack time of the Compressor/Limiter was fixed - either you liked the way it sounded or you didn't. The CP9 Compressor/Limiter lets the artist choose his attack time, fast for smooth, tight control of signal attack or slow for a more percussive attack (great for bass!). The CP9 also uses a new VCA configuration for low noise operation even at the longest sustain. The CP9 Compressor/Limister - an unusual value for guitar, keyboard or bass.
