The Next Evolution of a Classic Compressor
The BOSS CP-1X Compressor effects pedal is a futuristic take on BOSS's acclaimed line of compression stomp boxes. Utilizing Multi-Dimensional Processing, the CP-1X Compressor analyzes all of the frequencies in your signal to deliver dynamic control that remains musical at any setting. 18-volt internal electronics ensure the pedal boasts enough headroom for a wide array of guitars and tunings. And a handy gain reduction indicator helps you dial in your compression with visual cues. The CP-1X may be the best BOSS compressor yet.
A classic pedigree
BOSS compressor pedals have been and continue to be found on countless pedalboards around the world. Their clear tone, ease-of-use, and nearly indestructible construction have made the CP series of compression stomp boxes classics. The CP-1X is the most forward-thinking iteration of these famed pedals. But even with all the power onboard, this compressor still boasts the familiar 4-knob control layout, transparent performance, and gig-ready build of it's iconic brothers.
What separates the CP-1X from BOSS's other compressors is its digital Multi-Dimensional Processing. This intelligent design instantly analyzes the different aspects of your guitar's signal and applies the pedal's effect to each differently, ensuring the pedal performs in the most musical way possible. This also means that the CP-1X remains transparent at any setting. And Sweetwater guitarists immediately noticed how quiet this digital processing makes the pedal. Definitely a big win.
18-volt internal electronics
Headroom is extremely important in a great compression circuit. That's why BOSS engineered the CP-1X with an internal voltage pump. What this means is, though you are able to use the standard (optional) BOSS 9-volt power adapter or 9V battery to power the unit, you'll receive the power needed to handle guitars that other compressors can struggle with. Active pickups, extended-range guitars, and acoustic-electric guitars are no problem, thanks to the pedal's 18-volt internal electronics.
