A Multiband Marvel

We first introduced the magic of multiband bass compression in our innovative RH-series bass amps, which made dialing in super-smooth compression an absolute breeze. With SpectraComp Bass Compressor we've kept the simplistic one-knob approach from the amps, while greatly improving the compression algorithm. This gives you access to studio-quality compression tones, in a stompbox so small that you can't afford not to have it on your board.

Honey, We Shrunk The Studio

SpectraComp Bass Compressor contains the same high-quality MD3 dynamics engine known from our studio production powerhouse, System 6000. A dynamics engine that has been used on countless hit-records and massive blockbuster movie productions. This advanced algorithm applies perfectly tweaked compression for your high, mid and low frequencies to create a more unified and balanced sound where your low strings never overtake your highs, something that's simply not possible with the one-size-fits-all compression known from a typical stompbox. This way you'll get a tight and punchy attack, with endless sustain all without ever compromising the natural low-end response of your bass.

TonePrint – Deep Dynamic Editing

Picture SpectraComp Bass Compressor as an ice cream. It's smooth, delicious and easy to love. But maybe you want to super-pimp your ice cream with cherries, chocolate sauce and sprinkles shaped like unicorns? You want to make that tone-sundae your own. This is where TonePrint comes into play. Via the free editor you can customize your own compression tone through a wealth of deep editing parameters, so it suits your rig perfectly. You can also try on custom pre-made tones via the free app for Android and iOS. Tone tweaking just leveled up.

Despite seeming so simple it's capable of some of the most advanced compression parameters from any pedal on the market right now. And the clincher? Just look at the price! So much versatility at such a low cost. Congratulations, TC!

The multiband compressor is an excellent choice for the bass guitar, letting the bass breathe a little more than a vintage-style compressor pedal. The TonePrint system is as cool as it is futuristic. One knob and one tiny enclosure is a simple as it gets.
