Here’s a my take on the LED compressor thing. Really this is just a “mash up” of mictester’s “Really Cheap Compressor and the John Hollis Flatline compressor. You could look at this as the Flatline with a simplified LED driver. Or, the Really Cheap Compressor with a non-inverting amplifier stage.
This hasn’t been tested. It was made more of an exercise.
I had wanted build a compressor for a while now. But had never actually gotten around to actually making one. A few months ago I etched and soldered a a Saffron Squeeze, which is a Ross clone. Somehow I had not actually finished this before I found stripboard layout for John Hollis’ Flatline, which jumped ahead in line.
I have it all in the box. I just need to wire things up.
