It's really good!  (By Dave)

I haven't had a compressor for years tho I tried quite a few that didn't
impress me with their tone and compression. I found the SP to work
more like a limiter rather than a sustain/compressor which is what I
expected. BUT it sounds great, and is perfect for smoothing out the volume
when playing hard clean funky chords. It has a lot of volume to spare so
it doubles as a great toneful booster so it's great into a drive pedal for solos. VERY nice tones, the toggle switch gives some useful choices. I am very happy with this little fella. (Posted on 12/10/14)
A pedal for people that don't like pedals  (By Hawk)

I've never been a pedal guy...preferring a Vibrolux Reverb and later a Deluxe Reverb cranked for many years in the bars. Unfortunately, the volume police are in full operation everywhere and I've had to try some new stuff to accommodate 21st Century audience's delicate ears. The Xotic SP Compressor along with the Xotic EP Booster get it done. Without a lot of effort or experimentation I've been able to get great sustain, boost and a "thickness" I can't find a better word for. Anyhow, I can sound cranked and get nice sustain without a bunch of distortion...and not damage the delicate ears of the young audiences. Good stuff, solid as a rock and very reasonable price.

Default setting is Bland~Set Internal Trim Pots & Pedal becomes Stellar  (By Lucidology)
Quality

Didn't care for this pedal much until I went inside and worked with the internal trim pot controls. Set it to the first one up and the rest down & it 'completely' changed the nature of the pedal or the default setting. The default setting just didn't allow the pedal to hardly add any squish at all. In fact, it seemed to make my signal tinier (if that makes sense). But now that I've changed them ... it become a great compressor for my purposes. Suggestion: Work with the Internal trim pots.

the White Russian of compressor pedals- Smooth, Tasty, Intoxicating!  (By Gianni Bangkok)

I'm not a super squish compression guy, I'm not trying to invert the envelope of my signal, I'm really looking for presence, sustain, fullness, some boost, and the smooth richness that comes with a good compression- really everything that your distortion usually gives you, but without the distortion! This pedal does that better than anything else I've heard, excepting maybe real good studio compressors and mic pres. Liquid.

Plenty of boost on tap, too. Really exactly what I was looking for. Love the tiny format, simple controls, looks pro, well built, and a very reasonable price even without the online discounting. Is this the best compressor pedal out there? (Posted on 1/25/14)
Excellent!  (By Siberian Khatru)

This compressor is finally the one I like! It gives me exactly what I need, that being control over picking dynamics without coloring my sound otherwise. The blend knob give you the option to add (or subtract) as much dry signal into the mix as you want. I haven't even tried the 4 internal dip switches yet because it's great out of the box for me.

First, this thing is tiny, which is good on my crowded pedalboard.

Secondly, it can produce some very sweet sounds. Just added it to my pedalboard earlier today, but I am impressed with the change to my sounds. Both my PRS Custom 24 and HSS Strat are benefitting from this addition.

Price might be a little high or not. My jury is out on that right now. We'll see how it holds up. With these sounds, if it can handle the beating of everyday use, it will be worth it. (Posted on 12/25/12)

Xotic Effects SP Compressor

The new Xotic SP Compressor uses an Operational Transconductance Amplifier (OTA), which turns the difference between your original guitar signal and its inverse into an output current that electronically controls the pedal’s gain to create remarkably clean, responsive compression. The SP Compressor offers outstanding tone quality throughout a wide variety of compression effects, and its versatile subtlety may be the secret to the best guitar sound you will have ever used to make music. A Blend control gives you the full sweep from all dry to all effect and all combinations in between, and the Volume control gives you up to 15dB of boost. The 3-way toggle sets the range of the whole effect while the four-throw internal dipswitch lets you select a high or low attack time, a fast or slow release time, a high cut filter and an input buffer that works both to prevent distortion and to trim the low frequency signal. The SP is wired for true bypass and operates on a standard 9v battery or 9vDC power supply.

Xotic Effects SP Compressor Features:

    • Volume, Blend Controls
    • 3-Way Sustain/Compression Toggle Switch
    • 4-Throw Internal Dipswitch
    • True Bypass Switching
    • 3.5" (8.9 cm) x 1.5" (3.8 cm) x 1.5" (3.8 cm)
