OVNIFX Smoothie Opto compressor 2018 newest "Tough and Suave" version

Sorry, this listing has sold out.

Sold Out!

New OVNIFX Smoothies are here! This batch uses an optical circuit instead of OTA, and we are really happy with the results. This listing is for the newest version (August 2018) that includes both Tough and Suave circuits!
The new ones have essentially the same tone and action as the originals, apart from these details: It uses a charge pump to boost the 9V supply to a higher internal voltage, to reduce the chance of clipping, for you players with high-output basses. With the new Opto models you can get a serious dip-and-swell effect at the maximum setting of the Sustain knob. Lower settings get a more natural and unobtrusive action.

At first we released two versions: "Tough" and "Suave". The suave ones soften the compressor's reaction to the initial peaks of your notes, which gives a little more transparent-sounding action and reduces any artifacts. The tough ones respond to your note attack more strongly and quickly, which gives the start of the compression more of a funky character. They are otherwise the same, and both versions work equally well for both instruments. We have retired those versions, because we managed to get both into one pedal!

This listing is for a brand new version that include both circuits. Inside, on the circuitboard, is a pair of DIP switches that are labeled "intensity" and "speed". With both set to one side it works as the Tough version, and with both at the other side it works as the Suave. You can also set either one of the switches to the opposite side, and get results that are partway between the Tough and the Suave. This is a huge amount of flexibility, and it means you'll never need to decide whether to buy a compressor for transparency or one that's more of a squishy effect. The toggles come pre-set to the Tough mode.
The OVNIFX Smoothie compressor is packed with features such as clean blend, tilting EQ, super low noise, very wide frequency range, and an LED to indicate the amount of compression. Please visit our website, ovnifx dot com, for all the specs. It does not come with any accessories.

We offer a "forever" warranty on the Smoothie: if you ever have any trouble with it, contact us and we will do our best to make it right. It's up to our discretion whether that means repair, replacement, or refund.

Please watch the brand new demo video, updated Aug 31!

We apologize for the high price of international postage. We tried using a less expensive method, and several pedals got lost or significantly delayed. The more costly method (International Priority Mail) has not lost or delayed any pedals for us yet.
