Manufacturer's Description from Overstayer

We love FET compression! In fact, some say we’re slightly obsessed with it. They might be right.

The Overstayer Stereo Field Effect Model 3706 Limiter/Compressor is an evolution of our 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

Overstayer Recording Equipment

About Manufacturer

In 2008, Los Angeles-based musician/engineer/producer Jeff Turzo began building custom recording electronics for his personal studio. It wasn’t long until other LA-based producers caught wind of the designs. Soon, the requests for his custom recording electronics began to roll in, and in 2009, Overstayer Recording Equipment, Inc. was born. 

Overstayer Recording Equipment was launched with the idea of building unique high-quality, analog circuits with vast tonal flexibility. Each Overstayer design is conceived to meet real-world needs and evolves from real-world testing. All Overstayer products are hand-made in Los Angeles, CA and offer comprehensive controls that allow users to find the ultimate balance between fidelity and color. Find out why engineers that have used Overstayer products will never again work without them.
