The Deluxe

The Origin Effects Cali76 Compact Deluxe Compressor is a premium quality, studio-grade FET compressor in a small compact pedal. Looks may be deceiving with this unit, as it is packed full of professional tools that will enhance the tone and playability of any instrument. Like other effects pedals that can be powered by a battery, the Deluxe has eliminated this space and instead incorporated the best components available, and requires an additional power source.

Easy to Control

Based on the original Cali76 Standard, the Deluxe includes all of the functionality in one compact unit, with added parallel mix control previously only found on limited editions. Independent controls for Attack, Release and Ratio let you precisely tailor your tone and achieve a truly unique performance, from transparent transient control to flat-out limiting and sustain.

The Dry Blend control is considered to be the best feature on this pedal, as it lets you mix your dry signal back in with your compressed guitar tone for true parallel compression. This is an indispensable studio recording technique, as parallel compression gives you all of the tone thickening and increased sensitivity of the Cali76, while keeping hold of the natural dynamic expression in your playing.

Internal Components

The Deluxe is highly equipped with the means to offer lower noise levels and a superior tone. Equipped with Rugged MELF resistors that offer low noise performance and immense reliability. In addition, Film and tantalum capacitors offer tight tolerances and superb linearity. Carefully chosen transistors biased at relatively high currents yield a distinct signal-to-noise advantage.

Jewel Lamp Function

As well as being packed full of versatile features, the Deluxe also includes an elegant jewel lamp, that functions as an intuitive three-colour gain reduction meter. Understanding these colour options is easy with Red for no compression, and Orange for active compression. The brighter the lamp, the greater the gain reduction. Yellow signifies that gain reduction has reached 27dB. This is an ideal function for live performances that may be badly lit.
