J. Rockett Audio Designs Introduces the I.Q. Compressor

An EQ/compressor combo with each frequency slider controlling 18db of gain or cut.

Nashville, TN (May 15, 2017) -- J. Rockett Audio Designs has announced the second new product for 2017, the I.Q. Compressor. The I.Q. Compressor is part of the “Q Series” which is comprised of products designed with the influence of a host of top Nashville and LA touring artists to address their needs on the road and in the studio.

The I.Q. Compressor is an EQ/Compressor with a pre-compression EQ. The EQ allows you to choose which frequencies you want to be compressed harder based on their respective gain setting.

I.Q. Compressor features:

  • Six-band graphic EQ
  • Volume and mix knobs
  • I/O jacks at the head of the pedal
  • 9V DC operation with standard – tip and + sleeve
  • Approximately 4” x 2.50” in size

Each frequency slider has 18db of gain or cut. The compressor has a volume and mix control. The volume control increases or decreases the output level and the mix control simply blends the compressed signal with the dry signal. (There will be a slight bump in volume as the mix control blends dry with wet). It can be adjusted with the volume control.

The frequency bands on the EQ are as follows:

  • Band 1- 100 Hz
  • Band 2- 200 Hz
  • Band 3- 400 Hz
  • Band 4- 800 Hz
  • Band 5- 1.6K
  • Band 6- 3.2K

The I.Q. Compressor carries a $229.00 street price.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
