“Andy Timmons suggested to Carl to create a Compressor/Limiter with two presets, so that he had a preset for more subtle rhythm parts, and a preset with more hard compression and sustain for other parts as solos without having to take up real-estate on the board for two Compressor/Limiters. The result is a two-preset option for Compression Rate and Level. In order to save knobs and to be as user-friendly as possible, the Threshold and Response settings are fixed for both presets, leaving the pedal with only six knobs, the Threshold and Response being 6mm miniature knobs. As a useful extra feature we incorporated a ¼” jack for remote switching the presets (Latching).”
“As something new, the Carl Martin Andy Timmons Signature Compressor/Limiter incorporates the newly developed DC/DC converter circuitry. This enables us to run the pedal with +-12V internally, which is necessary in order to maintain the same sonic quality and headroom as on the “old” Compressor/Limiter using a regular 9V DC 200mA power supply.”
