Elysia Museq Discrete Class A Stereo …

Elysia Museq Discrete Class A Stereo  ...Elysia – Elysia Museq Discrete Class A Stereo Equalizer
This analog EQ is a combination of premium sound shaping capabilities with optimally matched parameters and the highest quality components, enabling the user to find musical results quickly and easily. The five bands and their ample gain ranges as well as some special features make sure that the museq can be used flexibly in any tracking or mixing situation, and the stepped controllers are easily repeatable for mix bus or mastering applications.Each of the two channels offers three parametric bands with a two-position switchable Q. The outer bands per side are low/high shelf designs which can be separately switched into a low/high cut mode. In the cut mode, a resonance peak keeps the knee frequency from sounding overly damped, reminiscent of inductor circuits in classic designs.Each of the five gain controllers per side can be altered from boost to cut with a single switch, for easy location of problem frequencies and twice the number of available gain steps. Each channels has a switchable option for adding strong harmonic color of the signal, making two EQs in one. Many will prefer the color setting for mix use and the clean for tracking, but this is up to100% Discrete Class-A – As a true elysia specialty, the museq is completely based on discrete circuitry and does not use any integrated circuits at all.Active Bandpasses with FETs – The filter stages are completely active and benefit from a puristic design approach without coupling capacitors – the basis for a truly musical EQ.Resonance High & Low Pass FiltersThe outer shelving filters can be switched into low and high pass filters which feature an additional resonance peak as a very useful specialty.Parallel Filter Design – A special circuit trick makes it possible to leave the high and middle frequencies completely untouched when using the high and low pass filters.Warm Mode – The museq offers a second, switchable sound flavor by altering its frequency spectrum, harmonics and transient response.Pure Transparency Path – The puristic design of the filter stages with current feedback amplifier stages and without any coupling capacitors results in an outstanding sound quality.Boost/Cut Mode – The boost/cut switch generates twice the number of values to be set with the 23 step potentiometers than the usual -/0/+ arrangement would offer.Switchable Filter Quality – The filter quality can be switched from a wide to a narrow Q factor, which remains independent from the setting of the gain controller.Stepped & Matched Potentiometers – All potentiometers on the museq have 23 steps and are matched to build stereo pairs by a software routine that has been written just for this purpose.

Elysia Mpressor Discrete Class-A Stereo …

Elysia Mpressor Discrete Class-A Stereo  ...Elysia – Elysia Mpressor Discrete Class-A Stereo Compressor
The Mpressor is a new tool for modern dynamics processing. On top of the tried and tested standard features, this creative compressor provides several special functions that produce fat and freaky sounds with maximum punch, beautiful colorations and extreme processing options. Besides classic tracking applications, its favorite domains are groovy effect compression and creative sound design.Each of both linkable channels offers a switchable Auto Fast function that allows very fast yet distortion-free compression without any artifacts. The Anti Log circuit generates explicit compression effects such as pumping and breathing. As the mpressor is a true feed forward design, it also allows negative ratios which result in the most extreme over-compression effects. The Niveau Filters can change the character of a track from subtle to striking with the possibility of a continuous frequency shift.The Gain Reduction Limiter is a novel feature that lets you choose the maximum amount of Gain Reduction you want to allow at the twist of a knob. The switchable external sidechain inputs make for further flexibility in terms of controlling the compression. The circuit design100% Discrete Class-A – As a true elysia specialty, the mpressor is completely based on discrete circuitry and does not use any integrated circuits at all.Auto Fast – Inspired by its big brother: the switchable semi automation for a perfect attack on the basis of the value set by the user.Anti Log – This alternative characteristic of the release curve follows an antilogarithmic course instead of the standard linear progress and produces a much more audible result.Negative Ratios – The characteristic curve bends and goes back down! Heavy pumping, backward sounds, etc. – perfect for very cool compression effects.Audio Filter – Just as the alpha the mpressor features a Niveau Filter. According to its creative approach, it here allows even stronger sound shaping results.External Sidechain – You want to create frequency dependent compression or have it accented by the groove? The switchable sidechain inputs make nearly everything possible!Gain Reduction Limiter – This novel limiter is not placed in the audio path as usually, but restricts the control voltage of the compressor instead.Analog Dynamic LED Meter – The gain reduction meter modulates its LEDs in their brightness in order to show the action of the compressor in an analog way: fast and with smooth transitions.Transconductance AmplifierThe mpressor’s custom discrete gain reduction cell provides low noise, extremely fast time constants and all the punch in the world.T12 HeaterThe single transistors are kept at a constant temperature by the use of this heating system which helps to avoid parameter drifts.

Elysia Xpressor 500 Stereo Compressor  ...Elysia – Elysia Xpressor 500 Stereo Compressor Available In Api Format
The elysia xpressor 500 is an extremely versatile stereo compressor available in 500-series format. With its many unique features taken from Elysia’s flagship products, you not only get great compression, but an amount of control on processing which is hardly ever experienced elsewhere.No matter if you want set-and-forget, or to delve deep into the secrets of compression, the xpressor 500 is for you. Its discrete audio path running in constant class-A mode provides superior audio quality, which combines a clear and open sound with a lot of punch.Stereo bus compression, processing single signals, approaching dynamics in creative ways – the xpressor 500 shines in all applications.Discrete Class A TopologyA true elysia specialty, the audio path of the xpressor 500 is completely based on discrete circuitry and does not use any integrated circuits at all to color the signal path. Its entire audio path is a new design based on the exclusive use of high-grade discrete components. A truly unique recipe. In addition, it operates in permanent class A mode. This means that the transistors are always conductive, resulting in the absence of crossover distortion, providing a pristine sonic base; the general sound character is always wide, open and punchy.Auto FastInspired by Elysia’s flagship compressors: Auto Fast enables you to set the perfect attack. It’s a switchable, semi-automated attack based on the value you set by ear. However, sometimes one setting doesn’t always work based on changes in the program material. For example, if a very short attack time is chosen, the compressor can catch the short peaks, but the sustaining signal will also be processed, which might result in audible distortion. Longer settings reduce distortion significantly, but then the compressor is set too slow for catching fast impulses. That’s where Auto Fast comes in: For example, if you set the attack to 80ms and then engage the Auto Fast mDiscrete Class-A TopologyPristine audio qualityAuto fast-attack; perfect attack in any situation.Switchable release characteristic; smooth or crisp – the choice is yours.Warm mode; transparency?
