Electro-Harmonix Releases the Pico Platform Compressor

Electro-Harmonix Releases the Pico Platform Compressor

The new EHX Pico Platform is designed to offer studio-style compression and limiting to any pedalboard with advanced controls and options for a wide array of dynamic control.

Carrying with it the same studio-style compression of the full-sized Platform Stereo Compressor, this diminutive dynamics controller is designed to be strong enough to level off any signal from any audio source.

The Pico Platform’s strength lies in its flexibility to footprint ratio. Coming in Electro-Harmonix’s smallest chassis yet, the Pico Platform features two main operating modes, Compressor mode and Limiter mode. In Compressor mode, the compression ratio is adjustable for dialing in more subtle and sweet signal smoothing. In Limiter mode, this ratio is maxed out for a more extreme squash useful for limiting peaks and adding girth by raising lower signal levels.

These two modes are complemented by a simple 4-knob design for nearly limitless adjustment. SUSTAIN controls the compression ratio in Compressor mode or the threshold level in Limiter mode. The ATTACK knob sets the amount of time delay before the compressor/limiter is activated and adjusts how much signal attack you experience. BLEND allows for a perfect balance between dry and compressed signal giving a more natural feel with enhanced sustain and tonal richness. VOLUME adjusts the output level for sitting perfectly in a mix. Additionally, the Pico Platform also features SOFT / HARD Compression Knees which can be selected for more subtle or dramatic compression styles, respectively.
