Are there any FX that will create volume pedal swell effect while recording guitar?

    Is there a way to set up a compressor or limiter, flanger or other so that while recording straight into my DAW (Studio One) I can get the feel of a guitar volume pedal ( as I don't have a pedal)? I know once I'm editing I can do fade ins and fade outs but wondered if there was a way to accomplish the feel while recording? I thought maybe some kind of effect with a slow attack and / or slow release might work?

    Thanks.

    Awesome... I'll give that a try .... with a name like "slow beer" that effect would have give me that classic country sounds I'm lookin' for.
