The Germanium Compressor is a single channel all discrete FET compressor designed with musicality in mind.

The Germ Comp starts with the same all class A amp found in the Germ Pre and Tone Control and is transformer balanced in and out. The compression circuit uses an FET gain reduction element but with the tricks and flexibility of all the Germ units. Some of the most notable additions include a Wet/Dry mix (for "submixing" tracks within the comp), Comp Curve (which selects the knee using various diode combinations), Clean/Dirty comp and Sidechain filter. Many of the Germ Comp parameters have been purposely set by studio use and listening not by over analyzing them with test gear. The result is a musical powerhouse ready for tracking, mixing, and mastering.
