The TC Electronic SpectraComp is a compact multiband compressor specially voiced for the bass guitar. The pedal is modeled after the popular MD3 engine from TC Electronic's System 6000 processor and offers transparent and musical compression to tame midrange bark and low-end woof without killing your dynamics. Single-knob compression will keep your mind on the music while you perform, and a host of signature TonePrint algorithms will keep your tones fresh and the creative juices flowing. The SpectraComp is built durable for the stage with studio-quality sounds and a True Bypass output to keep your input signal uncolored. If you're looking to add punch or subtly smooth out pops and thumps, Music Experience bassists recommend taking the SpectraComp bass compressor for a spin.

    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.
