So, I’m new into playing bass and bought the Caline CP-45 Bass Compressor. I currently don’t have an amp but I have it connected to my PC using an audio interface (M-Audio Air 192-4 if that matters).
So what happens is when the compressor is off, no sound is coming out. After pressing on the footswitch, sound comes on but no light on it. Knobs doesn’t do anything on it. Volume, gain, nothing at all. It feels like I’m playing the bass without it.
I’ve seen a couple of youtube videos about it, I can see that there’s power light right when they push the switch.
I don’t know if this is only happening because I’m not playing on an amp? I already contacted the seller and hoping for a reply tomorrow.
Edit: Attached photo on how I have my knobs. BUT again, turning these knobs doesn’t do anything with the sound output.
It only has an option for the power supply. Actually, it doesn’t come with it. It’s a separate purchase. The power supply was purchased from the Caline store itself. The thing is, I only get a sound output when I turn on the switch (but no light). Is that how it’s supposed to work? Or I should still get a sound output but no changed effect until I switch on the compressor?
No worries, 9 volt center negative is the most common PSU for modern pedals. I only mentioned it as a warning for using one without any info. I know a certain someone who fried his Tech21 VT Bass DI too.
