Overstayer Stereo Field Effect Compressor

Overstayer Field Effect Compressor

The Overstayer Stereo Field Effect Model 3706 Limiter/Compressor is an evolution of our passion for FET compressors and classic analog recording chains.

Overstayer Stereo Field Effect Compressor

The Stereo Field Effect, or SFE, is a stereo unit with ganged controls that combines compression and limiting, with analogue tone shaping and harmonics stages to evoke the tonality of a classic analogue recording and mixing chain.

Classic FET ratios, as well as subtle low and hard limit ratios, allow the balance of compression to harmonics to be tailored, while wide-ranging attack and release options allow the envelope to shape exactly what hits the harmonics stages. The integrated sidechain filter and tone shaping of the discrete harmonics stages allows the signal to remain full even with large amounts of gain reduction. The Nonlinear mode engages an alternate aggressive personality, giving you new and unique dynamic textures.



Classic FET compression in stereo with single controls

Discrete harmonics circuitry to add rich colour and character to the compression, integration that gives you a fluid recording/mix chain

Parallel blend control; adjust compression and harmonics as aggressively as needed and balance to taste

Multiple ratios allow for subtle control to harder limiting, while the external sidechain loop can be used to shape further or bypass compression altogether, driving only the analogue harmonics

Nonlinear mode brings creative and extreme punch, and energized compression balanced with additional harmonics

Transformer balanced discrete output stage

Power supply included with rugged 5 pin XLR connector and IEC cable
