The Germanium Compressor starts with the same all class A amp found in the Germanium Pre and Tone Control and is transformer balanced in and out. The compression circuit uses an FET gain reduction element but with the tricks and flexibility of all the Germ units. Some of the most notable additions include a Wet/Dry mix (for 'submixing' tracks within the comp), Comp Curve (which selects the knee using various diode combinations), Clean/Dirty comp and Sidechain filter. Many of the Germ Comp parameters have been purposely set by studio use and listening not by over analysing them with test gear. The result is a musical powerhouse ready for tracking, mixing, and mastering.
All Germanium units require and function on the PSU-1, Chandler Limited power supply. The PSU-1 has an internal switch for setting voltage to 120V or 220V (115V/230V).
