The Squish As is the compressor you can rely on to preserve all of the richness of your tone while bringing out nuance you might never have noticed before.

At its core, the Squish As features a best-in-class Blackmer® Voltage Controlled Amplifier (VCA) and True RMS Detector. Optical and JFET compressors are popular for their musical character; however, this character often comes with increased distortion, limited dynamic range, and a somewhat unpredictable transfer function. The high-end VCA and True RMS Detector deliver natural, high-fidelity dynamics processing. Use it to make notes sound more consistent, tame peaks, and boost subtleties; or add depth to your tone with parallel compression by setting the Ratio high and rolling back the Blend control. The Squish As is the perfect always-on compressor.

Full audio frequency bandwidth and a Sensitivity range of -6.3dBu to -46.3dBu make the Squish As suitable for a variety of input signals including bass guitar, high output pedals (up to +12dBu), and synthesiser. The -96dBu noise floor is low enough that the Squish As can be used anywhere in the chain. The variable Ratio from 1:1 (no-compression) to ∞:1 (limiting) can take you from transparent smoothness to brick-wall limiting. Up to 20dB of makeup gain on the Output control and a tilt-style Tone control will ensure that nothing is lost along the way.

The LEDs are not just for pretty colours. I've found that to understand what a compressor is actually doing, the most helpful thing is visual feedback. That's why I have added a gain reduction VU meter to the Squish As. The VU meter indicates the amount of gain reduction in decibels that is happening at any time. Squish As is the compressor you can actually understand.

The Squish As Compressor’s Attack rate is programme-dependent, meaning that the Attack is automatically set to a very musical rate based on the player’s input. Put simply, the harder you play, the faster the attack. The mathematics behind this are fairly complex, but some useful rules of thumb for Attack are:

  • 3dB gain reduction will take approx. 42ms
  • 6dB gain reduction will take approx. 20ms
  • 10dB gain reduction will take approx. 15ms
  • 20dB gain reduction will take approx. 5ms

The Release will always be slow relative to the Attack, at a fixed rate of 125dB/s or 8ms/dB. Some useful rules of thumb for Release are:

  • 3dB recovery will take approx. 24ms
  • 6dB recovery will take approx. 48ms
  • 10dB recovery will take approx. 80ms
  • 20dB recovery will take approx. 160ms

The resulting attack and release rates mean you will always have a slower release relative to the attack.

Tech Specs:
  • Input Impedance: 500kΩ @ 1kHz
  • Output Impedance: 560Ω @ 1kHz
  • Input Level: Rail to rail, approx. +12dBu
  • Output Level: Rail to rail, approx. +12dBu
  • Noise: -96dBu, A-weighted 20Hz to 20000Hz
  • THD: Typically less than 0.02%, any compression amount up to 40dB @ 1kHz
  • SNR: Typically less than 82dB without any gain reduction
  • Frequency Response (-3dB): 20Hz to 20000Hz –suitable for Guitar and Bass
  • Attack Time: Program dependent;-3dB ≈ 42ms, -6dB ≈ 20ms, -10dB ≈ 15ms
  • Release Time: 125dB/s or 8ms/dB
  • Dimensions: 126.5mm * 66mm * 55mm
  • Power requirements: 9V centre negative, < 70mA

Warranty & Returns

All New products are covered by the manufacturers new warranty. Please check their website for the length of warranty and warranty conditions. If an item you receive is faulty get in touch with us ASAP. Second Hand products come with a 4 week warranty from us. If there is an issue let us know ASAP! This covers normal use and does not cover accidental damage, misuse, wrong power plugged into it, modding, water damage or any other damage caused by mistreatment. Just treat it nice and all will be good!

Shipping

We send A LOT of packages every week so don't worry about the shipping side of things!

We've never lost a thing and your awesome new gear will be packed up really well to avoid any damage in transit.

If your order comes in before 2pm we will ship it same day. Most of the time we pack things up all the way to 4pm so just call if you need it to leave same day after 2pm.

We ship mainly with Australia Post but may use a courier depending on location and size of the package.

Free Post ships with Australia Post standard and expected shipping times are between 4-6 business days depending on location. It will be longer to outside of metro and rural areas.

Express Post will usually be with you next business day in metro areas of QLD, NSW, SA, VIC and TAS. WA will take 2 days to metro and extra days after that to out side metro and rural areas.

Everything we ship has a tracking number with the exception of some power cables and smaller envelope packages. You will be emailed tracking once your order has been shipped!
