Product Description

Don't be fooled by its name: This pedal transcends the compressor category!

The Platform from Electro-Harmonix is the first-class compressor you've been looking for. It adds resonance, clarity and all of the added 'snap' that you desire, with a wealth of controls for ultimate tweakability. It also offers stereo in and out, perfect for recording or running a more complex live rig!

The limiter function adds consistency and beautiful resonance to anything that you apply it to - popping lines, plucked chords or red hot lead lines, your playing will adopt a new lease of life!

More Than Just A Compressor!

The Platform's secret weapons, however, are a series of extra controls you might not expect. Attack, release, sustain, drive and swell give you a whole host of abstract sounds. We told you this was more than just a compressor!

Adjust the attack, release and swell controls to attain incredible cello-like sounds, or adjust the sustain and drive for a smooth but crispy lap steel sound. This pedal simply has to be heard to be believed!

Here's What Electro-Harmonix Have To Say About the Platform:

The PLATFORM is a sophisticated, professional stereo compressor limiter that includes volume swell and tape reverse, plus overdrive. It’s powerful for studio or post production work, yet compact enough to take to a gig!


  • Studio-quality compressor/limiter lets the user precisely tune dynamics regardless of the instrument or situation.
  • The compressor/limiter includes a full complement of controls: Volume, Attack, Release and Sustain, plus pushbuttons for Hard or Soft Knee and the Limiter.
  • Foot-switchable overdrive section adds versatility and includes dedicated controls for Volume, Tone and Drive. Together with the compressor it produces a sound that’s saturated, smooth and slippery.
  • Adjustable Swell function creates bowed, fade in and reverse effects.
  • True stereo operation, can be used as Mono In and Out, Mono In and Stereo Out, or Stereo In and Stereo Out.
  • Features a three color, eight LED compression meter that displays the compressor’s actual gain reduction in real-time.
  • Stereo buffered bypass that’s great for keeping your signal pristine with multiple pedal setups and long cable runs.
  • Comes with an EHX9.6DC-200mA power supply.

Mr Don Swatman31st Dec 2018

Compressors will never set the world alight like a distortion or echo box, but I liked this one. I found quite of the others not what I wanted. I tried a whole load of and this one did the job for my playing style and gear. It has the the tight sharp attack for funk and controls the level for other pedals, eg Mel-9. Smothering out the signal for soloing with the soft knee is particularly good. The swell gives some intresting ambient options, but I found the drive section a little lacking. The most noticeable thing is the line of LEDs, indicating level of compression. Maybe they are a little too bling for some, but hey flashing LEDs! I notice BOSS have gone for a similar design aesthetic with their new CP-1X.
