MXR Dynacomp

Compressor and Sustainer

For all types of devices there are some classics which are used repeatedly over decades and over the time reach genuine cult status. When it comes to compressors for guitar and bass, one effect is necessary to be mentioned, and that is clearly the MXR Dynacomp. As often as this device has been used in professional and already legendary recordings, it is actually unnecessary to say more.

Remarkable is that the Dynacomp only needs two knobs! The sensitivity knob is used to set the compression threshold, the final volume is then determined with the output knob. And attack, ratio, release, etc.? The knobs that in other cases take the user hours of puzzling and trying? The MXR Dynacomp simply does not need more knobs, because everything is set so guitars and basses sound compact and crisp. Of course you can also extend the sustain significantly with more extreme settings; what else do you need?

great compressor
thibze, 31.07.2019
I've been playing with this comp for roughly 6 years with mostly strats and jaguars (reggae, groove and post-rock)

This pedal brings an amazing percussive sound and warm sounding compression overall

On the other hand, the noise brought by this comp is LOUD - I strongly recommend the use of a well tuned noise gate for any clean recording of subtle solos.

I love to play this comp along with overdrive or distortion pedals (i.e Fulltone's OCD)

Nice pedal, but with some drawbacks
Wilbury, 29.04.2017
Generally, I like this little pedal very much. It really does the job it is supposed to do. On the negative side, however, is the fact that there is no attack pot to play with. Also, the pedal adds quite a noticeable amount of "white noise" to the signal, although I believe the same applies to rival models. For example, I remember having a Boss compressor that seemed to produce a comparable level of noise.

Christopher1419, 12.01.2015
Never used a compressor before but glad i now have one. seems to be great for tightening up my sound and getting a great sustain. I only use it on low settings as doesn't need too much to give the kind of effect i wanted. good product, a little noisy but i have lots of pedals so i use a noise gate and that sorts it out when i have all my drive pedals and this running at once
