It's easy to shy away from compressors. They often seem unnecessary and, without understanding the settings and functions, compressors are way too easy to overkill. Well, this little baby, the Xotic SP Compressor, changes everything.
In the video below Jason Houtsma, our lead guitar instructor at Worship Artisty, reviews the various settings on the Xotic SP compressor pedal and shows how you can use them to take your bass or guitar playing to new heights.
Here are some of the SP compressor controls and features we cover in the video:
Volume Knob - can act like a boost with the blend down.
Blend Knob - adds body and sustain. My favorite feature on this compressor.
High, Medium, and Low Switch - controls the dynamic range.
"Secret" controls - in the back!
As you can see, the Xotic SP compressor's handful of settings and controls can be used in a ton of different combinations to create your ideal sound. It’s small, simple to use, and good for sounds that can work well in a worship setting. If you like what you hear, you can purchase an SP compressor with this link.
