Omnipressor

Dynamics Processor with Attitude!

Introduced in 1971, the Omnipressor® rack unit was widely used on hit records throughout the last four decades. One of our first customers was a young Brian May, lead guitarist of Queen. With the Omnipressor in his rig, his sound was never the same again.

Professional quality dynamic-modifier for gating, compression, limiting and expansion. The Omnipressor is even capable of reversing a sound’s envelope, making loud sounds quiet and quiet sounds loud. This plug-in is based on the original Eventide Omnipressor, introduced in 1971 and used on hit records throughout the last four decades.

 

This Plug-in is part of the Anthology X Bundle         Ensemble Badge

Reviews

[Omnipressor] is the most twisted, aggressive, nasty, and yes, seductively versatile dynamics control device I've used...The Bass Cut switch is way cool for kick drum fans, as it attenuates bass frequencies going to the compression control circuit.

I thought it would be interesting to compare the plug-ins to the hardware they emulate. To be honest, I was not expecting them to be that close in sound, but I was in for a surprise...I was kind of blown away at how alike they sounded after trying several different settings on each processor.

Frequently Asked Questions

General

Eventide's native plugins do not require the use of an iLok USB dongle, however they do use PACE's iLok License Manger for authorization which is available from http://www.ilok.com.

Using iLok License Manger, you can activate the license in two separate locations, each of which can be either a computer, or an iLok license key. You can move these licenses at any time using PACE's iLok License Manager software.

In order to authorize your plug-in you need to install the iLok License Manager from www.ilok.com and move the license to either your computer or iLok license dongle. Even if you have a licensed iLok plugged in, the iLok License Manager must be installed.

There are several reasons you may see this error, but a common one is a mismatch of the serial number format. All Eventide plug-ins have a serial number in the form of XX-###### where XX represents a two letter sequence defining the product type and ###### is a 6 digit number. All plugins also have a 16 digit license key in the format ****-****-****-**** where each * can be either a letter or number. The license key is entered on the second page of the registration process.

If you believe your serial number and license key are entered correctly, please contact our Support department and we will solve the problem as quickly as possible.

Compatibility

All Eventide native plugins are 64 bit compatible with AAX, AU and VST.

We currently test in house against ProTools 10, ProTools 11, Ableton Live 8, Ableton Live 9, Apple Logic 9, Apple Logic X, and Steinberg Cubase 7. However, in the rare event that users encounter problems with other DAWs we make efforts to investigate. If you experience such problems please inform us in our Forum.

Our native plug-ins including H3000 Factory Native, Blackhole, Omnipressor, and 2016 Stereo Room native plug-ins support AAX32, AAX64, AU, and VST on Mac, and AAX32, AAX64, and VST on Windows.

Troubleshooting

Eventide has its own preset format using .tide preset files. By default the installer installs the .tide presets to your Documents/Eventide/Presets folder. It may be necessary to check that the installer has placed the presets in this location. You can load these presets using Eventide's Preset Bar which is part of the plug-in GUI itself. Some hosts have their own preset bars which are used by the host. Eventide's .tide presets will not show up in this preset bar. To load an Eventide Factory Preset you have to use the preset bar which is inside the actual plug-in GUI, usually below the hosts preset bar.

Registration

First you need to create an account at www.ilok.com and download their iLok License Manager software. Install it on your computer. Second, register your plug-in on eventideaudio.com, which will automatically send a license to your iLok account. Make sure to install the plugin into your computer. Intallation files are located on individual product pages and on the Downloads page.

Alternatively, for products that allow computer authorization, after you've installed iLok License Manger and registered the plugin, you can launch your DAW. Once the DAW scans the installed plugin it will present a dialog box to install the license on your computer or iLok.
