OVERVIEW

Feel the force of your sound, focused and smooth like you've never heard before.

Forcefield Compressor is here to give you all the vintage squish and squash you could ever want at a price that simply can’t be ignored. From subtle sustain enhancements to smooth signal leveling and all the way to full-on chicken-picking compression, you’ll find it all and more in this great road-ready pedal.

All Analog Awesomeness
Compression is always one of the hardest effects to explain due to its subtle nature. You often feel compression more than you hear it, and it just makes it easier and more fun to play when it’s on. Forcefield Compressor’s vintage circuit design instantly instills that feeling in you, and whether you’re going for some sweet tube-like sag or an unapologetic squash, you’re sure to find it here.

That Old-School Feel
Vintage analog compression differs greatly from modern studio compression. You won’t get the glassy transparency of rack gear, instead you get gobs of warmth and a smooth tonal characteristic that has helped shape the history of rock and country music. From sublime David Gilmour sustain to Albert Lee-like picking that pops out of the mix beautifully, you can get it all with Forcefield Compressor.

Compact Compression
Forcefield Compressor easily squeezes into every setup due to its compact, yet extremely durable design with top-mounted ins and outs, so it doesn’t take up any space on your board where it matters the most. On top of that it features True Bypass so it doesn’t affect your tone in any way when off.

Backstage Pass – All Access
Highly intuitive to use and sporting a ton of cool compression tones. Let’s get to know Forcefield Compressor a tiny bit better.

Level The Playing Field
The level knob greatly interacts with the sustain knob, since you’ll have to make up for lost gain when compressing your signal. But you can also crank the level, and use Forcefield Compressor as a booster for solo parts. So many options, so little time!

Singing Sustain
This determines how much you want to compress your signal. Set it low for a subtle, but highly usable signal leveling, or crank it for tons of rhythm squash and endless solo sustain. To quote Spinal Tap’s Nigel Tufnel “You can go and have a bite and aaaaaaaaaah, you’ll still be hearing that one!”

An All Out Tone Attack
This determines how fast the compression is applied. Set it low for a fast and squashed response or crank it for a more open and organic compression tone.

True Bypass
The concept is simple. When the pedal is on, you should hear it. When it’s off, you shouldn’t hear it at all. Forcefield Compressor does exactly that and never compromises your tone when bypassed,

FEATURES
  • Vintage style compressor pedal – for subtle compression to all-out squash

Comments about TC Electronic Forcefield Compressor Effect Pedal:

This is a great comp! For easy money you get an ultra-usable comp, albeit in a large package. I used it on a full-length record recently and it was absolutely perfect. Perfect as a first comp, or even a backup, but a touch too big for main-board status. If TC ever releases this as a mini (or nano size) I'll be the first to pick it up!
