i've been thinking about adding a compressor to my rack, but I'm fastly running outta module cash and don't wanna pay 600 for the cwejman stuff...
are there any other compressor units for eurorack? doesn't need to be studio quality like the big green though thumbs up

Pulp logic has a vactrol limiter on the exit strategy... you could prob use that to decent effect on some stuff. i use my BYOC 5 knob compression pedal.

Seriously, I have been asking for a compressor in Euro format and no one seems to listen.

Needs to have very fast attack, adjustable threshold, release. Hard knee is fine. Doesn't need to have CV, just something simple to squash kick drums without distorting them.

A compressor with sidechaining is something I would sorely love to have. Especially with the advent of the polyphonic modules.....

Imagine a phat chord being ducked by the BD808 or similar.... Sweeet grin

yes, it can sidechain. i have the stereo version but haven't used that kind of technique yet. i must admit it can sound very nice especially on chords.

but couldn't you do that easily with most outboard compressors? i just use plugins for that kind of thing, sidechaining a compressor that's on the input channel seriously, i just don't get it

Yes, please give us some euro compressors! sure I can just buy some outboard ones, but I really want a compressor in the middle of a patch, lets say between VCA and a delay module or to duck the exaggerated spring reverb before filter or whatever. Not impossible to do with outboard but instead of having 8hp a138d to facilitate that I would prefer 8hp compressor.
And yes it is possible to use various modules to do what compressor does, but try and use your fancy modules as a compressor in a live situation... Dead Banana

Can't you just do this with vcas? A compressor is just a dynamic amplifier, after all....

Cwejman compressor looks awesome.


There was a project about SC compressor, but it seems to be dropped. confused

I would love to see Euro and 500series come together. I'm sure it is just a matter of making a Euro panel and bringing 4x to 6x 500 series I/O to the front. Correct me if I'm wrong but 500 series is 12V? It's probably closer to 48V? Just say'n it would be cool.

I'm pretty sure you can get side chaining and regular compression effects using a maths and an envelope follower.......

the envelope follower -> vca trick usually won't sound that great, because you're building a compressor from scratch by patching rather than having a precision tuned one built by professionals. Just saying, compression is probably the one piece of kit you want to be a bit of a conservative with (EQ as well I suppose)

I think a hard limiter is a much more useful in-cabinet device than a compressor. Of course it is just a compressor with the ratio turned up all the way but a simple brick wall limiter would be a very good "speaker saver" in any modular studio.

well i know i could just use an external device... but you know the idea of having the modular and that's it with gear is really awesome nanners
But i guess I'll just buy an ehx soul preacher or a boss comp or some other nice and cheap comp seriously, i just don't get it

I use an Alesis nanolimiter next to my rack for squashing duties. The Aphex Dominator is a great limiter too. But I too wish for a nice simple 4 or 6hp of fast attack hard knee compression.

It is too bad the Alesis wasn't a inch narrower cause then you could panel mount it sideways. There are few of them on eBay right now in the $60 range. Probably wouldn't be hard to hack it to fit - remote the jacks and pots.

Yeah I definitely agree but its still cool for some things like side chaining non crucial lines.

I hear good things about the Golden Age Project Comp 54 and the RNC comp which is stereo too!
Does anyone have the Cwejman comp?
