The COCAINE features the same optical compressor circuit as its little two-knob brother, the much beloved COCA Compressor but offers a lot more controls and tone-shaping features.
The compression is controlled by two knobs. They do pretty much what their labels say: SUSTAIN adds nothing but clean undistorted sustain to your tone. SQUASH goes from subtle tone-enhancing to a more pronounced compression effect, but even at full tilt it will preserve the attack of your instrument and keep its character.
VOLUME allows for a clean boost, unity gain is around 12 o’clock.
BASS and TREBLE are active (cut/boost style) controls for an effective tone shaping
The BOOST knob controls an entirely independent circuit, activated by its own footswitch, just like another pedal in the same box. It’s located after the compressor in the signal chain, so you can set the comp for your base tone and hit the boost switch for your solos. The BOOST knob is something special. Its neutral point is at 12 o’clock. Turn it to the right for a full-range clean boost or to the left for a lead boost with tighter bass and pronounced mids.
The OKKO COCAINE is not only a transparent, natural sounding and exceptionally quiet optical compressor, it also serves as a preamp, active equalizer and dual clean boost. No matter what you plug in – electrical guitar or bass, piezo-eqipped acoustic guitar (or any other stringed instrument) – the COCAINE will make it sound more balanced, sit better in the better in the mix and generally just... better. You’ll probably get addicted soon, hence the name.
Each COCAINE is built by hand in Leipzig/Germany using quality parts and sturdy construction techniques (no board mounted jacks or footswitches for example). It features an internal voltage doubler for increased headroom.
