Anonymous 's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)" Secret tool"
Once understood the operation, it is easy to get what you seek.
Fairly neutral (more than dyna comp), this pedal dynamics and reduce it compensates for the lack of small volume on my strato s / s / s when it helps calm the pornstar my other strato h / h. Embellishing sounds clear and energizing the overdrive / distortion, a really good addition to sound quality pro.
For the price, this is a good choice, it's solid, it works, and not too out of breath extreme setting.

Configuration rather simple in view of the presence of three potentiometers but the settings are both sensitive and subtle shades obtained, this pedal requires a learning curve to get the or sound (s) desired.
The manual, as always, is minimal but enough to understand how that is quite accessible.
Like all effects of this nature, it should clearly define their expectations and to understand how the settings interfere with each other.
Basically, we can focus on two types of sounds: a punchy and clear sound linear and / or a popping sound with a big sustain and overall smoothness.
The Super Comp provides both sound very effectively and without iron out the coloration of its own gitare or effects that follow. Compared to the other compressor brand-Dyna Comp this effect gives a more modern sound but it turns out just as effective with the most made by adjusting the attack. Very useful in recording or rhythmic arpeggios its clear, it provides a sound that I described above "linear", that is to say, without rising or falling level: compressed, what! This is especially interesting when using effect "turning point" (a phasing or flanger) who also plays on the level at its phase "rotation", so we get a better consistency with the compressor plays the role of a limiter. With OD or distortion pedals, Super Comp provides sustain that can be infinite while thinning effect given by a strong gain. It is necessary, in this association, taking into account the wind generated by the compressor itself and the distortion pedal that follows: therefore be avoided to gain it thoroughly and remain on reasonable level settings and compressing this MXR. Under these conditions, we will ace a very small level of noise perfectly manageable without using a noise gate.
This pedal is great and really effective. Perhaps more boilerplate than its predecessor the DynaComp, it naturally found its place in all the pedals board guitarists who want the sustain and greater linearity volume. I use the MXR compressor for ages and I have three. Depending on the sound desired result, I chose one over another and I get in any case what I want.
The reliability is not an empty word in MXR whose quality control seems to top.
The price / quality ratio is excellent.
Another great MXR!

barvador's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Bad point for the battery it is necessary to introduce practically have to disassemble the hammer APRS pedals as there is no room, and the power supply that is too prs jack. FYI a power supply type ibanez pedals for 3 or 5 or even a more universal sentence in between the hole and can gnrer false contacts. Worthy that price.
The rglages vary depending on whether it plays a clear or saturated it takes much cost to understand how it Ragit and not the manual that makes things easier, but the end result is what is desired. rglage the level of attack is rather thin, allows a smooth game. The PDAL is transparent and does not stain. Attention, SETTING THE compression / sustain gnrer can breath or a sound that gets carried away. It is suited to powerful guitars and quiet, so avoid passing the rglage 2 hours. Strato del vintage feeble to refrain from compulsory MIDI or noise gate.
The level of sound output can be calibrated but the boost still must find a balance. Gnral compression is not an easy effect but the mxr apprhender plays cleverly on the dynamics of sound, with some lgance.
The sound is quite CHARACTERISTICS mxr is - that the elastic compression gives effect to sound clear and it's great for funk. In saturated is less empty but the sustain is extra and can be calibrated riffs slice well.
The price is high but it is a good product. The silent Dynacomp adapts to sound more vintage guitars and fender type, we feel the and this is prcis on docs, the Supercomp is suitable for most modern guitars, active pickups , boosters, double coils howler. Besides, I am willing to change against a Dynacomp, if someone has INTERESTED.

izzie's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Three knobs: Output, Attack and Sensitivity level
An Input and Ouput.
A switch and an LED.
Powered AC outlet.
8 because the plug to the power supply is the input jack (not practical)
The ONFIGURATION is more or less simple, we have:
output of the knob used to drive almost
the attack level knob which operates ... uh ... the level of attack
sensitivity of the knob that handles the compression
It is quite easy to get a pretty compressed sound by grinding a few minutes but the knobs to get the sound that really suits us, we can expect to spend some more time especially if it has an overdrive, distortion or other in chaining and thus test each effect with compression to listen to the reactions.
Basically it is a compressor pedal ^ ^
The sound is very much inflated. We can go from clean boost to a much larger saturation.
Note that the Output knob to make the sound very fuzzy on the end of the race, something that may not be annoying but the sound is not very accurate and generates a lot of breath (the Decimator thank you).
The Sensitivity knob also generates a little breath on the end of the race but it also helps to have good sustain and excellent fluidity in the sequences of notes.
My advice therefore to be relatively moderate on the knobs and prefer to use this pedal with another overdrive pedal, distortion or fuzz instead of using the output of the pedal like a nag!
It's still a very good compression.
I use it for about a year or two and I must say that I pretty much believe in the bright parts (rhythmic slamming) than in the more "punchy".
I have not tried a lot of compression pedals actually I bought the one hand it was a case (€ 40) and I have not looked elsewhere since it too pretty for me.
However, I admit to being partial to the Analogman Bi-CompRossor but this one is really expensive so I'll wait a bit ...
The quality / price (even for the nine) is excellent.
I would do this choice with his eyes closed in spite of my little knowledge on compressor ...

Very good. Configuration very easy to access
This is the strong point of the pedal. It is impressive as gonffle has the sound !!
It's all good! A must see!
mdkratkid's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)
rglages: output, attack, sensitivity
alim. : 9V battery or sector.
Trs easy to use!
3 knobs and that's it!
- Output: the output level General for the pedals
- Attack: To set the attack time, takes between when the note is played and the moment the pedal is activated and acts on the compression
- Sensitivity: the rule coughing increases the compression and sustain
can easily be found by searching DSIR sounds a little. Too bad the manual does not offer some basic settings to get a first ide (especially when you have never used compressor)
For a pedal this range, the effect of compression is effective trs. the rhythm can become rattled and the endless solos and incredible fluidity ...
I use an Ibanez S470 with (fairly large output level) on a marshall 30MGDFX, but also a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe.
GNR is the breath low trs, provided they do not abuse the potentiometer for sensitivity.
It lends me for a week and spend some time on it.
Trs simple to use and posting of trs good performance for this range, I think if I had to take a compressor, I would take this one DEFINITIONS.
The report quality price trs INTERESTED
