Analog Alien are one of those companies which have a lot of character, the bright colours of their pedals, the cartoony graphics, that name! Run by brothers Jack & Joe Napoli the company came about as a result of their recording studio Cloud 9 based on Long Island.
Jack & Joe have recorded many huge artists who use their pedals today. The brothers wanted gear to gear the right sound people wanted in the studio and once created everyone they worked with wanted to buy one.
With this in mind the Alien comp was designed to reproduce studio quality compression in a pedal while keeping it simple. The Ratio goes from a subtle 2:1 all the way up to a heavy 10:1 squish for those looking for something a bit more countryish.
Cleverly the brothers added a tone of possible output so you're able to both make up level and even push the amp hard like a boost pedal would.
