The SlideRIG Compact Deluxe Mk2 takes the awesome dual-chained compression and limitless clean sustain of its predecessor and adds continuously adjustable control over attack and release times
Every version of the SlideRIG up until now has featured fixed attack and release characteristics. And for good reason – with this much compression on tap, there’s plenty of potential for undesirable results.
But with the SlideRIG Compact Deluxe Mk2, we’ve succeeded in designing a single control that lets you explore a wide range of attack and release settings while avoiding any unpleasant distortion artefacts. This simple control gives you the freedom to shape the transient of each note, from smooth, uniform sustain to a spiky and percussive pick attack.
The original SlideRIG was inspired by the Little Feat frontman Lowell George, who created his trademark slide tones by recording through a pair of 1176 compressors chained together. The SlideRIG’s unique “clean overdrive” capabilities – full, fat and sustaining yet beautifully clean – add unbelievable touch-sensitivity to lap steel playing, supercharge your slide guitar and supply sustain to pedal steel that goes on for days.
