If you need a small footprint compressor/limiter then the new EHX Pico Platform has you covered.

It is based on the full-sized stereo Platform compressor/limiter pedal, just this time it is a lot smaller and so it loses a few features.

Sure, you lose the stereo operation and the metering with this new Pico version, but it retains the key studio-grade compression/limiter characteristics and that could be a great tool for a lot of guitarists.

Studio-Style Compression

It has Hard/Sort Knee compression options via a push button on the top of the front panel. The Hard Knee offers more dramatic compression styles, whilst the Soft Knee setting is somewhat smoother in operation

Plus, it has standard controls for Vol, Sustain, Attack and Blend.  Making it both simple to use and easy to see what is going on.

Adjust to taste

Blend adjusts the overall dry/wet ratio, whilst Sustain adjusts the compressor ratio or limiter threshold and  Attack adjusts the attack time of the compression/limiter effect. Finally, Volume controls the overall output level.


For studio-style compression, it covers all the basics, and it could be great to have on a pedalboard.  As it will help keep your tone constant and in check.

The Pico Platform is designed to be extremely transparent with no added tonal colouration, so it is perfect for a lot of applications.

The pedal has a buffered bypass and the price also includes a power supply.

MSRP – USD 119
