Invigorate - Eventide Audio

Add Life to your Tracks

Here’s a little secret: compression, limiting, and overdrive are all the same thing—and all of them can be used to add energy and excitement to your music. Invigorate is a deconstructed compressor, limiter, and overdrive distortion fine-tuned to add life to your mix, drum bus, or any other element. The intuitive design allows you to effortlessly morph from pumping compression, through hard-hitting limiting, to rich distortion while dialing in the perfect sound with the prominent MIX control. The result is guaranteed to bring your mix forward and make it sound bigger.
