The Mira is Walrus Audio's version of a highly tweakable optical compressor.
Compressors are hard to demo, because done correctly, they are subtle – especially optical compressors.
Compression is something I usually do in the DAW to glue together a track. The reason to have it right in the signal chain is to make the guitar feel different under your fingers. And the Mira sure does feel good.
The difference between the Mira and more simple compressors is that you can tweak it to your every needs.
You can make your instrument feel squishy, or just even out dynamics, increase sustain and make it work for bass or guitar.
