Presenting the all new Vahlbruch FX Quantum Compressor Pedal. The "Quantum" is a 100% analog compressor / sustainer pedal on studio level with easy to use controls. The core is a photocell, which generates a very musical optical compression. The pedal helps your guitar to cut through the mix without losing the instruments transparency. Due to the switchable parallel compression mode the attack and punchiness are fully preserved, only sustain is added without any tone coloration. You can also toggle to a more classic serial compression mode. The LED indicates the dynamic processing by its brightness. Internally the "Quantum" can be switched from "true bypass" to "buffered bypass". Used at the beginning of the signal chain the "buffered bypass" mode ensures a clear guitar tone even through long cables and effect chains. Another LED indicates the activated buffer mode as "Bypass Buffer On".Buffer and compressor: "Quantum" is a 2-in-1 pedal! An absolute secret weapon and an "always on" pedal! The "Quantum" is also perfectly suited for bass and acoustic guitar! Like all Vahlbruch pedals, the Quantum pedal is equipped with their unique Magnetic Transducer Button = "MagTraB" switching technology:Inside the button a magnet is integrated which position is measured by a sensor on the circuit board. If the button is now moved, e.g. if it is pressed downwards, the position of the magnet will also change. The sensor measures this change without any mechanical contact to the button and the information is send via a micro-controller to a gold-plated relay, which then does the actual audio signal switching. The advantages:MagTraB buttons are as good as indestructible!MagTraB delivers an almost infinite number of switching cycles - many, many millions!No annoying, mechanical switch clicks!Instead, the "MagTraB" push-buttons switch very smooth and quiet
