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
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.
