Axe-Fx III

Blocks Guide Description

A compressor reduces the difference between loud and soft sounds by reducing the louder portions of a signal. The designated reduction occurs whenever the measured signal exceeds a set threshold. While a compressor reduces the volume of loud sections, it can simultaneously boost overall level for greater perceived sustain.

In guitar pedalboards, a compressor is often placed at the start of an effects chain, though using the effect can increase noise or even squealing. In the recording studio, a compressor is typically placed towards the end of a signal chain to smooth irregular levels or provide special effects. This block includes both pedal and studio-type compressors (detailed below) and allows side-chaining and sophisticated detector signal filtering.

Owner’s Manual Description

A compressor reduces the difference between loud and soft sounds by reducing the level of—or compressing— loud signals. The reduction is triggered when the input signal exceeds a set threshold. While a compressor reduces the volume of loud sections, it can simultaneously boost overall level for greater perceived sustain.

In guitar pedalboards, a compressor is often placed at the start of an effects chain (though using the effect in front of high-gain distortion can increase noise or squealing). In the recording studio, a Compressor is typically placed towards the end of a signal chain to smooth irregular levels. The Axe-Fx II provides both pedal and studio-type compressors (detailed below).
