1404 - Punch Factory

Studio Quality Optical Compression for Your Guitar or Bass

The Punch Factory takes Aphex’s legendary optical technology – normally only found in expensive rack-mounted studio gear – and puts it at your feet and into your live performance. It’s truly the most transparent, uncolored compression you can find at any price.

Punch Factory levels out volume peaks and dips, maintaining a consistent level within your mix. Quiet passages no longer get lost, and louder passages don’t overpower. All without the pumping, “breathing” artifacts commonly found in most compressor pedals.

If you’re familiar with the sound of a high-quality studio compressor, you’ll know what to expect from the Punch Factory. If you’re used to the typical, highly colored sound of most compressor pedals, Punch Factory will be a welcome surprise. It’s truly the best sounding compressor you’ll never hear.
