EarthQuaker Devices The Warden V2 Optical Compressor Guitar Effect Pedal. Tone- This pedal was designed to slightly color your tone, the coloration can be dialed-in to your taste. There is no specific unity setting, adjust to taste when you find your perfect compression setting. Sustain- This is the heart of The Warden. It controls how hot the signal is, which changes the dynamics of the compression.The Warden is a feedback style compressor, the hotter the signal, the more active the compression. Very little sustain= very little compression, less active attack and release and a cooler signal, Max sustain= heavy compression, longer sustain, hotter signal and more lively attack and release. Ratio- This determines how much the gain reduction affects the signal. All the way up is full. Compression and the compression is reduced as you turn this counter clockwise which allows more of the boosted, less compressed, signal to come through.
There are no defined ratios here. Attack- This controls how quickly the compressor reacts and starts leveling the signal.
All the way counter clockwise is a fast, nearly immediate reaction. Turning the attack clockwise slows the reaction time. Release- This controls how long it takes the signal to raise back up to the level determined by the sustain & ratio settings. All the way counter clockwise is a fast release and the release time slows as you turn it clockwise. Enhanced feature set enabling control over parameters typically reserved for studio grade units.The Warden should be powered by a standard 9-volt DC power supply with a 2.1mm negative center barrel. A pedal-specific, transformer-isolated wall-wart power supply or multiple isolated-output supply is recommended. Pedals will make extra noise if there is ripple or unclean power. Switching-type power supplies, daisy chains and non-pedal specific power supplies do not filter dirty power as well and let through unwanted noise. Do not run at higher voltages!
