Kick it into TubeDrive!
Next to the compression is our TubeDrive knob, giving you the dynamic and warm sound and feel of a full blown tube amp.
Our acclaimed TonePrint technology lets the TubeDrive knob serve up anything from a slightly overdriven tone with organic, rich harmonics into fuzzed out, edgy hard rock distörtiön by beaming in different TonePrints.
TubeDrive has its own dedicated footswitch so you can kick it in at just the right moment.
Not your average stompbox
SpectraDrive is more than just a bass preamp and distortion pedal.
In fact, it's also a professional quality DI box with a
studio-grade balanced output, connecting nicely to any mixing
console or recording equipment.
The high grade components feature three toggle switches for Pre/Post EQ, Ground/Lift and Instrument/Line level, while parallel outputs make it easy sending your dry bass tone to your amp or a separate tuner while feeding all the tonal goodness of SpectraDrive through the PA system.
You gotta have TonePrints!
Our acclaimed TonePrint setup lets you beam in a wealth of artist TonePrints into SpectraDrive along with TC's own default tones, crafted in-house.
Using the same advanced multiband algorithm known from TC
Electronic's legendary System 6000 studio compressors, SpectraComp
gives you unequaled control over dynamics and cuts through the mix
like a flaming katana slashing warm butter, while you can beam in a
different flavors of overdrive and distortion on the TubeDrive
