Norway’s OnkartGromt has released a new compressor called the Grompressor, which the company describes as an advanced compressor that is very useful for bassists.
“With options to control Input Level, Threshold, Attack, Release, Ratio, and Output Gain it is almost like a plugin in a DAW,” says pedal builder Øyvind Mjanger. “You can also save 3 presets for your favorites and toggle between them with the foot switch. And just to add some more, it has stereo in/out, blend and the option to use one of the inputs as Sidechain input.”
The Grompressor has an LED display for showing gain reduction, but more impressive is the OLED screen that shows the compression curve as you adjust the settings. Check out the company’s demo:
The OnkartGromt Grompressor is available now with a price point of $299.
