Overview

HyperGravity Compressor is the missing link that will take your tone from good to great. Featuring no less than three amazing compression modes; including a state-of-the-art multiband compressor, a cool vintage compressor, plus endless compression combinations through TonePrint. HyperGravity Compressor is the key to getting that much desired pro tone with even dynamics. 


Despite this power, HyperGravity Compressor is still extremely simple to use and includes a built-in limiter for extra "effect-type" squashed compression tones. The multiband compressor is based on the same MD3 compression algorithm as featured in TC’s definitive studio processor System 6000, giving a much more even and natural-sounding compression across the frequency spectrum, a vintage-style compressor adds classic stompbox compressed tones plus endless compression combinations are available through TonePrint or via the TonePrint editor.


Compress Without Compromise
HyperGravity Compressor's highly advanced multiband dynamics algorithm is the same MD3 compression algorithm that can be found in TC Electronic's studio production masterpiece, System 6000 which has been the preferred dynamics tool for top producers for over 10 years. Its technologically superior engine applies perfectly tailored compression for your highs, mids and lows, and leaves you with an ultra-transparent and in the end, more musical compression than what can be achieved with standard single-band compressors. This lets you go from subtle airy shimmers, to full-on straightjacket tone-holds and anywhere in between, without ever compromising your original tone.

Squeeze Into Some Tight Tones
Jump straight into those old-school compression tones of yesteryear with HyperGravity Compressor's warm vintage mode. You get all of the squeeze and squash you could ever want, alongside that extra presence associated with those classic stompbox compressors we all know and love. Perfect for percussive country tones, tight funk sounds or sweet Gilmour sustain.

TonePrint Customized Compression
With TC's proprietary TonePrint technology you can finally realize the full potential of your inner compression-geek. The free TonePrint Editor and its wealth of parameters, lets you tailor that fully focused compression tone completely to your liking. But hey, if you'd rather rely on the sonic wisdom of others, then they have a solution for that too. Via the free TonePrint App, you can beam custom-tweaked compression tones made by some of music's finest to the pedal. It's time to unleash those dream tones inside your head!

    Comments about TC Electronic HyperGravity Compressor Guitar Pedal:

    A very flexible compressor. If you aren't used to multiband compression, it may sound "different" to you, especially when sustaining chords and even slightly sustaining notes. In the Spectra mode, with the sustain above about 11 o'clock you can hear the "character" of the sound change slightly as the different frequency bands release independantly. Of course, this is the nature of multiband compression and if you prefer, there is a Vintage mode.
    But the real versatility is in the Toneprint function. You can define the parameters of the compressor in great detail. You can change where the frequency bands split, the attack, release, ratio, and threshold for each band. Even auto make-up. Also which knobs control which parameters, including multiple parameters per knob and the parameters response curve to the knob, i.e. linear, exponential, etc.
    The trade off is you have a learning curve in the Toneprint Editor and if you don't really understand how compression and related parameters are related and particularly how those parameters should be set for different styles of playing to get the desired effect, then something more "plug-n-play" might be prefered.

      Comments about TC Electronic HyperGravity Compressor Guitar Pedal:

      Love this thing! Had a Dyna Comp before & the 'vintage' switch captures that essence well. But, I leave it on Spectrum and its 3-band multi-compression sounds amazing! Brilliant, responsive, handles all tonal ranges- add in the tone print functionality & you can't do better!

        Comments about TC Electronic HyperGravity Compressor Guitar Pedal:

        First of all as with most TC pedals you get a lot of bang for your buck. and man, does it make it hard to not like this pedal.First, you get 3 settings out of the box. that right there beats almost every other compressor on the market with the ability to basically turn into a different compressor with a flick of a switch.
        apparently you can get a diamond sound, an mxr sound or any compressor tone you want you can program it..in theory.Tone prints are a little limited with this pedal compared to a HOF or Flashback, but it's relatively new and it's not a fancy effect. but still you get about 10 different tone prints which pretty much makes the 10 different units to work with. Pretty impressive right? If you own a strat, beam in the stratocomp and poom! you will be blown away by how much crisper and LOUDER it sounds without adding much noise.
        and then of course you get the editor. which in my opinion is the key to getting the absolute best sound for you.Oh and I almost forgot..you can set it to true bypass or buffered. sounds perfect! But the biggest feature of this pedal is that is DIGITAL. It just doesn't sound like a XOTIC SP that has that beautiful analog tone that sounds like a good clean amp being cranked up, like a more natural tube compression. The TC does not have that. it doesn't have that mojo and to me at least, sounds extremely digital, clean, sterile with no character at all, if the vintage mode was brighter it would be much better, I've tried to do that with the editor but I cannot. maybe because I don't know enough on how compression exactly works and the editor is not the easiest to use. If flexibility and dynamics control is your priority this will work fine, if you are after the best tone possible, with natural sustain and decay get a top compressor like the wampler ego, exotic sp, even my MXR Dyna sounds better, and very importantly TC's sounds absolutely horrible with other pedals.sometimes you just need that sustain.

        Comments about TC Electronic HyperGravity Compressor Guitar Pedal:

        I used to be the biggest critic of this pedals... I really thought TC for some reason failed with this compressor... Since I'm used to using top compressors like the Wampler Ego, or my fave Xotic SP , any Dynacomp user will immediately feel it's an upgrade... But I didn't feel it was one of the top compressors out there... I think I let my expectations get in the way... I tried all tone print and tried to dial in a good comp... but I was missing that mojo that the Xotic SP has that just makes your guitar sing and sound phenomenal... I did play with the editor, but I found it hard to use and I really didn't understand what commands to use , I didn't know what comp was under the hood until I spent quite some time on the Flashback Triple Delat editor and I realized how powerful the editor really is, and how dramatically you can change a mode. So after about 2 months of having taken this pedal off my board.... I decided to give it another try with proper time spending on the editor and BOOM! finally it has paid off... It was my fault since the beginning... But like I said... out of the box it's pretty impressive if you are used to inexpensive or more vintage compressors... but now I am able to get an incredible compression that is extremely quiet even in high compression settings... But believe me!!! The Key is in tweaking the Editor properly... there aren't any manuals or tutorials for it, but just play around mainly with the make up gain, and for sure you will find your perfect compression... after months of frustration, and even considering selling this unit... I can say now I am as happy as can be... and even though my faith in TC remained intact after believing this was a fail... I am now a bigger fan than ever . I'm at NAMM 2016 right now, and TC did not participate, I hope they are about to drop some impressive gear this year.... Since I think Strymon is gaining territory with their amazing sounding delays and modulation and ambient effects... but I really, really hope that with the amazing advantage of being able to update their pedals and create new sounds... they can come up with something that matches or even surpasses what strymon has done in the past few years... but anyways... if you want the absolute best vintage sounding compressor , Gilmour style... I would still go with the Xotic SP. but if you want the most versatile, feature packed and with the possibility of matching other compressors or surpassing it with some work inside the editor... You should really go ahead and buy this pedal.,. at the very least you get a sweet sounding ROSS compressor in vintage mode that will be an upgrade from your dynacomp... spectra and tone prints is where the magic happens though..

          Comments about TC Electronic HyperGravity Compressor Guitar Pedal:

          With a Telecaster in front of an all tube amp TC got it right. It delivers the perfect amount of compression for the kind of chickin Pickin I play. I have other Compressors but the Hyper Gravity is head and shoulders above the others.
