Compressors are used to control dynamic range in musical material.
Essentially, you’re reducing the difference between the loudest and softest levels, which provides more even sounding output.
For vocals, it’s extremely common to use high levels of compression on a lead track, so that every word can be clearly heard over the music. When taken to extremes, compression can “hype” the sound, creating an effect unto itself.
When related to guitar, compression provides enhanced sustain and attack. Combined with overdrive/distortion effects, you can create very even sounding rhythm or solo sounds.
How can you go wrong with sounds from the coolest, most popular stompboxes out there, the TC Electronic TonePrint line? Think edgy tap tempo delays, shimmering choruses and the thickest, richest, chewiest Reverb FX around.
For the lightest load-in or smaller gigs, you can plug guitar and vocals direct to the PA/monitors. When you want your full-on guitar world, the dedicated guitar output ensures signal fidelity to your favorite amp or an FRFR (full range frequency response) cab or two - stereo is awesome.
Extend FX Control With Stompbox Expansion
Add a Switch-3 accessory pedal to your setup and extend your on-the-fly control of Play Electric’s features. Put a Boost pedal on the first switch, your favorite Delay on the second, and Tap Tempo on the third - or any custom combination of Guitar, Vocal FX (even Looping) that suits your performance needs. Want even more control? With Switch-6 so you can break out even more features; you can have a full guitar FX pedalboard mapped out on the extension pedal.
