History of the Eventide Omnipressor


Wednesday, January 31, 2018

The Eventide Omnipressor was a very unique hardware compressor. It allowed for gating, compression, limiting, expansion, and reverse compression. This is one of the first known pieces of hardware to employ side-chaining.

Richard Factor, founder of Eventide, is a living legend. Listen to him here with fellow legends, John Agnello & Stewart Lerman. Its a little known fact that the Omnipressor was partly born in some way from the Richard Nixon Watergate tape.
