Universal Audio 1176 Compressor Limiter Pedal

The king of audio limiting -- the 1176 compressor -- is now in a compact stompbox! Universal Audio's 1176 pedal delivers the 1176 sound with the UAFX engine.

Introduced in 1967, the Universal Audio 1176 remains the king of audio limiting, heard on more classic records than any other compressor. Built on the powerful UAFX engine, the 1176 Studio Compressor delivers the same punchy, expressive tones of the world-renowned hardware, now in a compact stompbox.

Built for decades of dependable performance on stage and in studio, 1176 Studio Compressor gives you switchable true/buffered bypass and a parallel compression mode in a compact pedalboard-friendly enclosure -- so you can elevate your effects chain in a snap.
