  • Switchable External Side-chain — fully integrated version of the original
  • Mix/Blend Control — allows for built-in parallel compression
  • Configurable Stereo/Master Linking — useful for bus compression and multi-channel dynamics processing
  • Dynamics Processing — capable of creating otherworldly sounds
  • Dynamic Reversal — the first of its kind, soft signals come out loud and loud signals come out quiet, simulating tape reversal, a near unique attribute of this versatile compressor
  • Function Control — sets a ratio over a continuous range allowing extreme expansion, to infinite compression, and is even able to push further into dynamic reversal
  • Variable Control of attack and release time
  • Variable Control of maximum gain and maximum attenuation
  • Gating — amplitudes of signals that fall below a set threshold are ‘squooshed’
  • Expansion — widen a signal’s dynamic range, louder gets louder, softer gets softer
  • Compression offers variable control of compression ratio
  • Infinite Compression — if you want everything to come out at the same level, this is the feature for you
  • Limiting — a fast, versatile limiter, useful for maintaining a loud sound
  • Intuitive Interface — clean and easy to operate

“The Omnipressor goes so far above and beyond your standard compressor. It’s a go to unit for me on just about everything.”

Highly recommend.

This is the plug-in that’s going to take your programmed drum sounds and randomize them… I really highly recommend this plug-in.

Aggressive and shouty.

Omnipressor is a compressor and expander/gate dynamics plug-in that goes about the business of compression in a very aggressive and shouty way. If you are looking for a subtle transparent compression then look somewhere else, if you want a compressor with bags of pump, depth and character then look no further.

Seductively versatile.

[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.
