Eventide Omnipressor Native Plug-In Details
The Eventide Omnipressor Native Plug-in faithfully recreates the original Eventide Omnipressor rack unit, which was first introduced in 1971 and was widely used on hit records throughout the last four decades. One of Eventide's first customers for the Omnipressor was a young Brian May, lead guitarist of Queen. With the Omnipressor in his rig, his sound was never the same again.
A double-knee compressor/limiter, the Omnipressor has the unique ability of simultaneously compressing and expanding audio; it is capable of extreme compression, limiting, expanding, and dynamic reversal. Now, this software plug-in of the Omnipressor is available for the first time for Pro Tools AAX, VST, and AU.
Native Pro Tools Users (Pro Tool 9, Pro Tools LE, Pro Tools M-Powered): The Eventide Omnipressor is NOT AVAILABLE in an RTAS version. It is only available in Pro Tools AAX format. Omnipressor TDM is available for Pro Tools HD users in the Eventide Anthology Bundle II.

What We Think - Eventide Omnipressor Review
"The Eventide Omnipressor Native Plug-In is a fantastically weird, yet strangely natural dynamics effect. Recreating the original unit's quirks, this native plug-in version fits a niche that isn't covered by any other device or plug-in available. Personally, I was initially drawn in by the dynamic reversal effect that sounds quite a bit like the sound of a reversed-tape track. There are some really cool rhythmic possibilities on a drum track. But I found how the compression modes can bring about a very smooth and natural framework for the sound - particularly on overheads. But by the same token, you can make some really outrageous sounds with this effect. Try it on an insert, but don't forget to try it on an Aux Send. And the price is certainly nice! The Eventide Omnipressor has quickly become one of those plug-ins that I will use regularly from here on out."
