Electro-Harmonix has released The Platform, a stereo compressor/limiter that includes an overdrive section as well as a volume swell function. Suited for guitar or bass, the stereo pedal has a full compressor control set including Volume, Attack, Release, Sustain, and Hard or Soft Knee buttons.
A set of colored LEDs show your compression settings as well as a pair of LEDs to display whether the Drive or Bypass are engaged. Its overdrive section has Volume Tone, and Drive controls. The swell function is controlled with a single knob to let you dial in “bowed, fade in and reverse effects.” Other features include Stereo I/O, a stereo buffered bypass, and an EHX9.6DC-200mA power supply.
The Electro-Harmonix Platform pedal is shipping now with a list price of $212.
