Harrison Comp

Comp from Harrison Audio provides the compressor from Harrisons legacy of professional analog mixing consoles — now in a compact and portable 500-series module. With a sound heard on some of the most legendary albums of the 70s and 80s, Comp is a flexible dynamics processor perfect for everything from subtle smoothing to hard-hitting colorization. Originally designed for the broadcast radio market due to Dave Harrison's resistance to utilizing compression for musical tasks, the Harrison compressor was quickly revered as a powerful tool for controlling levels and adding character, inevitably changing Dave's opinion altogether.

Based on a feed-forward design with THAT 2180 VCA chip, Comp delivers a fantastic analog sound with the characteristic warm punch of Harrison consoles. The attack stage is program-dependent, dynamically adjusting to the input signal to automatically dial in the ideal attack time. Conversely, the release time is continuously variable, giving you plenty of options for controlling texture and movement in your dynamics. At fast settings, the unit acts as a crystal clear leveler for guitars, vocals, and other sources with high dynamic range. For analog pizzazz and character, pump up the ratio and release to unleash high saturation and a sizzling vibe.

With Comp, the legendary sound of Harrison compression is ready to meet the rest of your 500-series system. Whatever your compression needs, Comp gives you the secret sauce to spice up any project.
