BOSS - 'CP-1X'

NEXT-GENERATION GUITAR COMPRESSORThe BOSS CP-1X is a new breed of multiband compressor for guitar, powered by BOSS’s MDP technology, it preserves the character of your instrument and technique for enhanced musical expression. Intelligent processing analyzes your signal in several dimensions as you play, giving you advanced dynamics and control without colouring or losing natural tone like usual stompbox compressors can. The simple, four-knob format makes it easy to dial in complex results, while the handy gain reduction indicator always shows you how much compression is being used. Designed for all styles of guitars, the CP-1X offers next-generation performance for every style of music.

Amazing Features • Next-generation guitar compressor that uses BOSS’s advanced MDP tech to preserve musical expression
• Sophisticated under-the-hood processing with multiple interlocking parameters, accessible with simple stompbox controls
• Intelligent circuitry adapts to every register and playing nuance, providing natural compression with exceptional clarity
• Gain reduction indicator shows the current compression amount at a glance

Intelligent Processing

Natural SoundFrom the beginning, the CP-1X gives you a totally new guitar compressor experience. Basic stompbox compressors color and restrict your sound, and can be hard to dial in for various playing styles. The innovative CP-1X removed these set backs and more, offering a new world of expressive potential.

Powerful MDP technology analyzes your guitar’s many different tonal elements in real time, offering natural compression that adapts alongside your playing. This high-tech approach, allows your true tone and technique to always come through, even when using aggressive settings for that effected “squish.”

New Levels Of Musical Expression

Tap InNo matter what kind of guitar or style you play, the CP-1X always provides rich, musical tone. From mellow phrases and arpeggios to crushing rhythms, fast solos, and beyond, every playing nuance stays detailed and defined.

The pedal also provides superior performance for chicken pickin’ country licks, funky rhythm grooves, and other standard guitar compressor uses. It also works great as a booster due to its punchy, transparent sound.

On seven- and eight-string guitars, the CP-1X easily controls upper-range dynamics without effecting your vital low-end punch. When used with acoustic-electric guitar, the natural, lush overtones are fully preserved as you go from gentle fingerpicking to full-chord strums.

Studio-Level Results Simple Controls

Simple ControlsWith the controls on most pedal compressors, what you see is what you get. But with the CP-1X, the pedal’s controls interact with each other at an increasingly detailed level. When you turn a control, several interlocked parameters are adjusted simultaneously.

You get dynamic control and tone shaping ability that far exceeds standard compressor pedals, providing results only previously achievable with high-end studio processing. You also don’t need to be a sound engineer to use the CP-1X, its sophisticated MDP processing has been extensively fine-tuned by the BOSS engineers to let you dial in ultra-polished tone with user-friendly stompbox controls.

High-End Features

Pro PerformanceThe CP-1X has pro-level 18-volt input circuitry that provides ample headroom for the hottest guitar pickups, making sure you get exceptional clarity with any instrument.

A 16-segment gain reduction indicator clearly displays the compression amount, so its easy to see what the pedal’s doing. The CP-1X’s noise performance is also extremely low in comparison with other compressors, another huge benefit offered by BOSS technology.

Advanced Technology

Superior ToneEmploying decades of research and development, BOSS’s proprietary Multi-Dimensional Processing (MDP) technology gives you a fresh approach to achieving exceptional guitar tones. In real time, MDP analyzes the several elements that make up the sound, including frequency, overtones, dynamics, pickup response, and more.

Multiple playing characteristics are analyzed too, such as note register, single notes vs. chords, bends, vibrato amount, and others. Each individual element is then processed in unique ways to produce optimized tones as you play. With its ultra-detailed, high-tech approach, MDP offers tone quality and playability that reaches far beyond the limits of traditional effects processing.
