DESCRIPTION

The EHX Platform Stereo Compressor/Limiter presents you with a versatile and powerful studio-quality compressor enclosed in a stompbox-sized package. Use the Platform’s compressor/limiter on any instrument—such as guitar, bass or keyboards—for precise and powerful control of your signal’s volume. Engage the Drive and Swell functions to further tailor and enhance your sound. Whether you’re on stage, in the studio, putting together a podcast or creating your next YouTube masterpiece, the Platform will help you get the job done.

  • Studio-quality compressor/limiter lets the user precisely tune dynamics regardless of the instrument or situation.
  • The compressor/limiter includes a full complement of controls: Volume, Attack, Release and Sustain, plus pushbuttons for Hard or Soft Knee and the Limiter
  • Foot-switchable overdrive section adds versatility and includes dedicated controls for Volume, Tone and Drive. Together with the compressor it produces a sound that’s saturated, smooth and slippery
  • Adjustable Swell function creates bowed, fade in and reverse effects
  • True stereo operation, can be used as Mono In and Out, Mono In and Stereo Out, or Stereo In and Stereo Out
  • Features a three color, eight LED compression meter that displays the compressor’s actual gain reduction in real-time
  • Stereo buffered bypass that’s great for keeping your signal pristine with multiple pedal setups and long cable runs
  • Power adapter included

Owner's Manual
VOL KNOB [MAIN OUTPUT LEVEL]
Controls master volume. Use this control to balance your level between bypass and effect mode.
ATTACK KNOB
Sets the amount of time delay before the compressor/limiter is activated once the input signal level reaches or exceeds the threshold setting.
RELEASE KNOB
While the compressor/limiter is acting on the signal, the input may drop below the threshold setting and cause the compressor to cease working on the signal. The compressor does not stop working immediately, though. Rather, it gradually stops over a period of time that is set by the RELEASE knob.
SUSTAIN KNOB
Compressor Mode: Adjusts compression ratio. Limiter Mode: Adjusts threshold level.
VOL KNOB [DRIVE LEVEL]
Controls the output volume of the Drive section.
TONE KNOB
Adjusts the frequency response of the overdrive’s hi-cut filter, allowing you to dial in the perfect overdrive tone.
DRIVE KNOB
Controls the input gain of the overdrive section.
SWELL KNOB
Adjust fade-in time.

“The EHX Platform is powerful for studio or post production work, yet compact enough to take to a gig.”
