The Punch Factory takes Aphexâ€™s legendary optical technology - normally only found in expensive rack-mounted studio gear - and puts it at your feet and into your live performance. Itâ€™s truly the most transparent, uncolored compression you can find at any price.
Punch Factory levels out volume peaks and dips, maintaining a consistent level within your mix. Quiet passages no longer get lost, and louder passages donâ€™t overpower. All without the pumping, â€œbreathingâ€ artifacts commonly found in most compressor pedals. The new Punch Factory has something that most other optical compressors donâ€™t haveâ€¦a Ratio Control. This allows changing the amount of compression without overtly affecting the level.
If youâ€™re familiar with the sound of a high-quality studio compressor, youâ€™ll know what to expect from the Punch Factory. If youâ€™re used to the typical, highly colored sound of most compressor pedals, Punch Factory will be a welcome surprise. Itâ€™s truly the best sounding compressor youâ€™ll never hear.
