If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

The Eventide Omnipressor Dynamics Processor plug-in is not your everyday compressor. If you've already got competent and transparent-sounding compression in your studio arsenal, it may be time to take a walk on the wild side. The software incarnation of Eventide's classic '70-era studio rack unit, Omnipressor serves up a palette of ways to shape a sound's dynamics - including the option to twist it beyond all recognition. If you'd like to add truly characterful dynamics processing to your processing toolkit, Sweetwater's got your plug-in: the Eventide Omnipressor.

Eventide Omnipressor Dynamics Processor Plug-in at a Glance:
  • A Legacy of Sound Twisting
  • The Function Dial Is the Key
  • Powerful Sound-shaping Mojo
A legacy of sound twisting

The Eventide Omnipressor Dynamics Processor plug-in is not your father's compressor. Oh, wait - is actually is. When Eventide introduced the original hardware unit in the 1970s, a young Brian May of Queen was one of their first customers. The Omnipressor became a fixture in Brian's guitar rig, and the rest, as they say, is history. Today, you can have the Omnipressor's powerful sound-shaping mojo in a convenient, affordable plug-in for Mac and PC. How times have changed...

The Function dial is the key

Upon instantiating Eventide's Omnipressor Dynamics Processor plug-in the first time, you'll immediately notice the prominent Function dial. This knob (yes - of course it was on the original rack unit) takes you from gating, through expansion, to a unity setting at 12 noon. As you continue on to the right, you pass through compression ratios (1.5, 2, 4, and 8:1) to full limiting, before venturing into Dynamic Reversal territory in the last quadrant of the dial. Here is where your fun house mirror kicks in, where signals that exceed the threshold are attenuated and those below the threshold are boosted! With Omnipressor, you can completely brutalize your signal if you want. We're confident you'll use good judgement.

Powerful sound-shaping mojo

Until recently, Eventide's plug-ins have not been available natively. Fortunately, we can all now bask in the sonic magnificence of their superb algorithms. Omnipressor packs a serious sound-shaping wallop. You can use it just for basic compression, but that would be missing the point. Omnipressor is a potent dynamics tool that can bend, warp, and totally thrash your signal in ways you never thought possible. You should check it out.

Eventide Omnipressor Dynamics Processor Plug-in Features:
  • Characterful dynamics processing for your processing toolkit!
  • Gating, expansion, compression, limiting, and Dynamic Reversal
  • Intuitive Function dial makes Omnipressor simple to operate
  • Native plug-in for Mac/PC (AU/VST, as well as Pro Tools' AAX format)
Eventide's Omnipressor Dynamics Processor Plug-in is a powerful sound-shaping tool!

Omnipressor///Eventide Native Plugin

If you need to have a compressor which can be made to pump and breathe easily the Omnipressor will not disappoint you. Most software compressor/limiters are categorized as either transparent or with proprietary character. The Omnipressor certainly would be found in the latter. Its creative possibilities when used with drum tracks, solo or composite, are numerous. Dynamic Reversal gives an engineer a steering wheel to spin control of both level and time constants.

Sweetwater Advice

Austin Moss

Eventide Omnipressor is my favorite software compressor right now. It is the snappiest, sharpest sounding dynamics processor I've heard. The expander component is the only software I've found musically useful in this role. I can't recommend this one highly enough for drums, arpeggiated synths or even group processing.
