Overstayer Stereo Field Effect Stereo FET Compressor
The Overstayer Stereo Field Effect Model 3706 Limiter/Compressor is an evolution of Overstayer’s passion for FET compressors and classic analog recording chains. The Stereo Field Effect, or SFE, is a stereo unit with ganged controls that combines compression and limiting, with analog tone shaping and harmonics stages to evoke the tonality of a classic analog 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 color 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 analog 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

Thanks Josh for recommending the SFE! This has quickly become one of my favorite compressors in my tack, next to Trakkers, a StamChild 670, IGS TubeCore. It’s got the 1176 vibe with quite a bit of extra umph. I am using it mainly on a drum bus in lieu of distressors and it fills that role amazingly well, but I find myself wanting to track everything through it that needs some punch or to be up front from vocals and acoustic guitars to bass and percussion. Great piece!!!
