Smoothies are back in stock! We tried to have them available in time for Christmas 2020, but the parcel got held in US customs for a whole month. They're here now though, and ready to compress the heck out of the new year.

You can buy the new pedal only on Reverb.com so click this link!

The current model uses an optical circuit, aiming for the same extra smoothness of the original version, and we are really happy with the results. This pedal was designed to work equally well on guitar, bass (including extended range), and any other electric instrument. Here is a demo video on guitar, from Brett Kingman, of the current version Smoothie Opto:

Here's a bass demo from Zach Rizer:

And here's one, with both guitar and bass, from JustNickMusic:

The new optical ones have essentially the same tone and action as the OTA 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. And the current version feature interior DIP switches to toggle between a fast aggressive action, a slower softer action, and two "in between" positions, for a tremendous range of versatility and fine-tuning to your taste.
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.
