TC Electronic first introduced the magic of multiband bass compression in their innovative RH-series bass amps, which made dialling in super-smooth compression an absolute breeze. With SpectraComp Bass Compressor they have 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.
SpectraComp Bass Compressor contains the same high-quality MD3 dynamics engine known from the 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.
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 customise 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 levelled up.
