Hyper Luminal

Enhancer Series

Hybrid Compressor.


The Hyper Luminal Compressor features the first hybrid design in a compressor pedal: an analog VCA controlled by a digital side-chain allowed us to capture and include the characters of some of the most legendary compressors in history while keeping the signal path completely analog.



Mixes the clean and effected signals. Unlike our distortions, it is placed before the Output control. So the Hyper Luminal can also be used as a transparent booster with this control at minimum.



Sets the time constants (Attack and Release). You can use the Darkglass Suite to fine tune and custom map the time constants, you can also assign different behaviours for each Mode.



Sets the overall output volume of the unit.


Sets the overall amount of compression. This control also affects the internal makeup gain.



Adjusts the amount of compression.



Selects the unit’s Mode (BUS, FET, or SYM).


Width: 75 mm / 3″
Length: 111 mm/ 4¼″

The Hyper Luminal has a current draw of 250mA. Only use a regulated 9V DC adapter with a center-negative plug.

Unregulated power supplies and/or higher voltages may result in suboptimal noise performance and even damage your unit, voiding the warranty.

Touch Sensors


Adjust the amount of compression ratio.

  • BUS: 2:1, 4:1, 10:1, 15:1
  • FET: 2:1, 4:1, 8:1, 20:1, “ALL IN”
  • SYM: Based on different settings of the Super Symmetry · 115 GeV Compressor.



Selects between three different models:

  • BUS: Modeled after the Solid State Logic ® Bus compressor.
  • FET: Inspired by the legendary 1176®.
  • SYM: Our discontinued Super Symmetry · 115 GeV Compressor.

Darkglass Suite


By using the desktop version of the Darkglass Suite you can adjust the time and attack settings of each mode, the side chain parallel high pass filter, the mode of the release and attack settings and enable or disable the “guitar” mode.

Input & Outputs


Connect from the ¼” Output jack to the input of your amplifier or another effects pedal.


Connect your instrument or output from your pedal board to the ¼” mono jack.


A Micro USB B connector allows you to connect the pedal to PC/Mac to set Time settings, parameters, and future firmware upgrades via the Darkglass Suite.


Only use a regulated 9V DC adapter with a center-negative plug.
