Product Description

Compression is one of those magical effects that can change your guitar tone from good to great. The TC Electronic HyperGravity is one of the most advanced compressors ever put in a guitar pedal format with more than enough features to get the sound you want.

What Does A Compressor Do

A compressor works by increasing the volume of quieter sections and lowering the volume of louder parts. This ends up doing one three things.

  • Gives your a guitar a faster attack, perfect for funk and soul styles
  • Flattens out the peaks giving your a guitar a more consistent output level.
  • Increases your guitars sustain by increasing the output level as a note starts to die out.

Multiband Operation

One of the main things that really separates a standard compressor and this pedal is that the HyperGravity is a multiband compressor. As a compressors job is to make loud things quieter and quieter things louder give you a more even sound one blanket frequency is hard to get right.

For example if you set up the compressor based on you playing on the low E string when you get to the higher strings your tone will sound squashed with very little dynamics. If you do it the other way you will hear next to no effect on the lower E string.

By using a multiband design the pedal is automatically set up to spread the compression evenly across all strings for the perfect amount of the effect.

Three Modes

Thanks to a mini toggle switch you can go between a couple of different modes. Spectra is an ultra transparent compressor that is perfect for your more modern styles where you don't want to colour the sound. Vintage as the name suggests is a re-imagining of a vintage guitar compressor that adds some warmth to your tone just like you would have had using this classic effect.

Finally the last mode is the Toneprint option. Using toneprint you can create your own custom compressor settings using the tone print editor on iPad, PC or Mac letting you dive in deep to the hidden settings underneath. You can also beam some of your favourite artists presets down your pickup straight in to the HyperGravity.

Here's what TC Electronic say about the Hyper Gravity

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. Kick it in and be prepared to shine!

Compress Without Compromise
HyperGravity Compressor's highly advanced multiband dynamics algorithm is the same MD3 compression algorithm that can be found in our 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 to 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 our 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 we 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!

Versatile with good tange of sounds. Am still playing around with it. Solid build. Data cable included. I really like that you can open it with a coin too. Has the same footswitch as the one that broke on my Ditto.

Excellent pedal it's effect can be very subtle but dramatic makes playing much easier hammer ones and pull offs for example are much easier. It's pretty much always on now when I play

Mr S Calverley7th Apr 2022

There is only one Artist Toneprint (by Rudy Sarzo) for bass. But I've been able to use it for both of my basses (a very hot pick up G&L L2000 and not so hot Sire V7 Fretless) with minor adjustments to the knobs. I've also been able to use knobs only to get good sounding compression for finger, slap and pick on the G&L. I had a go with the Toneprint editor with one of the templates. I got a usable compressor within an hour or so based on settings someone had given me - but I preferred the Rudy Sarzo one so stuck with it. If you understand compression, the toneprint editor is logical. It's cleaned up my tone. I'm very happy with it.

This is a great compressor, with lots of options. If you're not very used to hearing compression, you can set it to be really unsubtle so your ears can easily pick out the compression effect - and then you can make it as transparent as you like as well. Really adds a bit of pro polish to your sound.

The perfect 'always on' pedal at the start of my pedal board. I have the 'Multi Band' set up for single coil pickups and the 'Toneprint' set for accoustic guitar. The HyperGravity seems to be sonically transparent while sorting out my rubbish playing technique - brilliant! This digital pedal is noise free when used with an isolated power supply.

Solid construction – it looks like it will last, especially for home use only. Makes a big difference to the sound of my Squire Classic Vibe Tele through a Blackstar ID Core 20. Increases sustain and evens out the tone, just as I wanted. By tweaking the level control you can also get an acceptable overdriven sound. Will need more time to investigate downloading the preset patches.
