The Vertex Effects Nyle Compressor is the perfect stompbox for musicians looking to replicate the vibrant sounds produced by classic ’70s and ’80s studio compressor racks. The compressor-preamp hybrid is equipped with a vintage Mic Pre that produces the unconventional tones associated with ’70s funk. The Mic Pre can be overdriven for a traditional hard rock sound, think Zeppelin’s robust-sounding riffs. Dual three-way toggle switches provide complete tone EQ: the treble toggle dials in high frequencies while the attack toggle manages the compressor’s sensitivity.
The standard ratio, sustain, and gain knobs complement an additional EQ knob for full tone control. The stompbox is engineered to provide the mastering effect that ’70s and ’80s studios used the compressor racks for, replicating lively sounds with sophistication. From Nile Rodgers to Jimmy Page to Prince, the sounds of the ’70s and ’80s are one stomp away.

The three-way attack toggle switch allows you to control the sensitivity of the compressor, offering subtle to ultra-squashy compression. Additionally, you can use the three-way treble toggle switch to dial in high frequencies that best suit your rig. The bottom three knobs control the mic pre circuit, giving you control of the volume, EQ, and gain. The EQ adjusts the low-mid frequencies of your signal to bring out the warmth of the preamp circuit. If you have been on the hunt for that classic funk clean tone or glassy bass tone, the NYLE Compressor will put an end to your journey, offering compression, EQ shaping, and level control in one humble enclosure.
