BecosFX Announces the CompIQ Twain Pro Compressor Pedal

BecosFX CompIQ Twain Pro Compressor PedalAfter releasing the Stella last year, BecosFX has expanded their lineup of compressor pedals with the CompIQ Twain. The unit is a dual-band/stacked compressor and limiter that the company says forges a new path in the realm of compressors.

“It features adaptive auto-attack & release timing presets and independent compression controls for knee, threshold, ratio, and make-up gain – on each band,” they explain. “It can work as a dual-band compressor/limiter with variable crossover point or as a stacked compressor with separate controls for each analog engine – at the flick of a switch. In either mode, harmonic saturation can be injected separately on each of the dryline bands and then mixed to taste with the wet compressed line for perfect tonal balance. Separate gain reduction displays make the compression effect visible, so you can always know how hard or soft the lows and highs are processed. That may complement any tonal re-quest.”

A full demo is coming soon, but the company offered this sneak peek of the pedal on bass:

The BecosFX CompIQ Twain Pro Compressor will be available in April with a street price of $329.
