The "device" IS the button you used to turn on the channel compressor, and the knobs next to it that control the compressor. The fact that it's not "physically" in the rack is no different from the fact the channel gate, EQ, filters, faders, etc are not in the rack either. Or to put it another way, the mixer IS the device! Make sense? ;-)
