Plugin Alliance releases elysia museq EQ plug-in

Plugin Alliance has announced the availability of the elysia museq equalizer effect plug-in, a software reincarnation of elysia’s award-winning flagship museq equalizer.

elysia museq

Since its original release in eye-catching rack-mounting hardware form back in 2009 elysia’s museq has more than lived up to its tagline: THE MUSICAL EQUALIZER. For this ear-opening EQ promptly walked away with coveted industry awards befitting its musical name and nature from those in the know on both sides of the pond. Why? Well, put simply, this awesome analog equalizer is a combination of premium sound-shaping capabilities with optimally-matched parameters and the highest- quality components — 100% discrete analog technology circuit design, permanent class-A mode signal processing using single transistors, and much more besides — enabling users to speedily achieve amazing-sounding musical results with the greatest of ease. Unsurprisingly, of course, audio and build quality such as this comes at a premium price. And rightly so.

Today, though, thanks to Plugin Alliance, elysia museq makes that most musical of EQs’ sought-after sound come alive in your favourite DAW at a $249.00 USD pocket-friendly price point set to take it to the musical masses! Moreover, the impressive features found on the original hardware are all present and accounted for here, including the outstanding resonant high-pass and lowpass filters (switchable to high and low shelf types) and the Warm mode sound shaper (to bring transparency, coloration, or both to the mix).

The elysia museq plug-in even brings some powerful extras to the musical table, such as MS Mode, an integrated M/S matrix for mid and side processing; Link, to link both channels for more convenient stereo operation; and dedicated output level controllers for adapting settings to the available headroom. Helpfully, the elysia museq license includes two plug-ins in one — a fully-fledged Master version with all the bells and whistles, plus a slightly simplified Mix version for easy, speedy setup.

So there you have it… the virtual version of a very flexible and musical-sounding EQ with an extremely powerful feature set, shining through on any kind of audio material anyone cares to throw at it!

Alternatively, it’s possible to purchase elysia museq as part of Plugin Alliance’s newly-introduced 100% elysia bundle — which also includes the elysia alpha compressor, elysia mpressor, and elysia niveau filter software reincarnations — for $489.00 USD, representing another attractive three-figure, 35% saving over purchasing the four plug-ins separately. Similarly, the newly-introduced 100% BX Bundle (featuring all 14 currently-available brainworx bx_ series plug-ins) and 100% SPL Bundle (featuring all 11 currently-available plug-ins from Plugin Alliance partner brand SPL) also represent remarkable value — all the more so since those same three tempting 0% finance schemes are also available at point of purchase. What’s more, as was the case with the original ALL Bundle, payment breaks are available when purchasing any of these Plugin Alliance bundles to further ease the financial burden — bundle plug-ins are automatically reactivated for another 30 days as soon as the next instalment is paid.

Plugin Alliance has got you covered, then, whatever way you choose to pay! So what are you waiting for? Go grab yourself a tasty slice of that sought-after sound courtesy of elysia museq and let your ears do the talking… after all, it’s THE MUSICAL EQUALIZER!

The elysia museq for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/AS) is available to purchase from Plugin Alliance for $249 USD. elysia museq is also available as part of the ALL Bundle – V2 or 100% elysia bundle at Plugin Alliance.

elysia releases xfilter true stereo equalizer

Related: , , Posted in news on Sep 25, 2013 - comment 0 comments

elysia has announced the release of xfilter, a true stereo EQ 19-inch rack unit.

elysia xfilter

The xfilter is a true stereo equalizer with a 100% Class-A signal path, resulting in an exceptionally open boutique sound with flawless transient projection and solid punch. Processing single signals, creative sound shaping, mix bus duties, or even helping handle demanding mastering scenarios, those stunning sonic characteristics combine with a flexible feature set to make elysia’s newest hardware product the perfect fit for many mission-critical audio applications.

Central to that versatility is the xfilter’s high- and low-shelf bands’ unique ability to change to high- and low- cut filters with resonance — a flexible feature found on elysia’s award-winning flagship equalizer, the museq. The xfilter also provides two mid-peak filters with switchable (wide or narrow) Q factor. In addition to its four flexible active bands, the xfilter features a unique switchable fixed LC filter for polishing the high frequency range. This passive filter mainly consists of a capacitor and a coil per channel that produce a slight resonance peak around 12kHz, focusing the saturation-like storage effect of the coil on the area around the peak without excessively pushing the complete high frequency spectrum.

By linking its two channels, the xfilter effectively eliminates the tedious task of manually matching the settings for the left and right signal. All stepped potentiometers ensure fast and precise recall of earlier settings. Moreover, each and every dual and quad layer pot is measured with custom computer routines… only the good ones make it into production units! Meanwhile, a special series of ultra-low-tolerance film capacitors guarantees an even more precise stereo image.

The new xfilter rack sports a high-grade linear power supply with shielded toroidal transformer, and is housed in a super-lightweight yet sturdy full-aluminium chassis. Both XLR and balanced quarter-inch inputs and outputs are provided, assuring total compatibility with any live performance or recording scenario.

The xfilter is available from any elysia dealer, priced at $1,499 USD MAP ($1,679 USD MSRP) / 990 EUR (plus VAT where applicable).

Plugin Alliance launches ALL Bundle

Plugin Alliance ALL Bundle

Plugin Alliance has announced the availability of the ALL Bundle, a discounted ‘Über-Collection’ of all its native plug-ins for Windows and Mac.

So what’s the deal? Well, it’s a big deal, actually. And when we say big we mean big… for Plugin Alliance ALL Bundle represents remarkable value by bundling all 33 remarkable plug-ins available at the present time from highly-respected Plugin Alliance partner brands Brainworx, elysia, Mäag Audio, noveltech Audio, ProAudioDSP, SPL, and Vertigo, covering everything from audio analysis to dynamics, equalisation to mastering, and specialist processing — priced to go at $2,388.00 USD. Though that’s an amazingly attractive 58% saving on purchasing those superior-sounding plug-ins separately for $5,658.00 USD, that’s not all…

Prospective purchasers can choose to spread spending that discounted $2,388.00 USD total cost over 12 monthly instalments of $199.00 USD or six monthly instalments of $398.00 USD — all interest-free, of course! Choose whatever best suits your pocket. Either way, 30-day lease licenses for all plug-ins are issued upon the first monthly instalment being paid, with repeat 30-day lease licenses issued for each monthly payment made thereafter until all six or 12 payments are duly completed, after which unlimited full licenses are automatically issued. Even better, background checks are not necessary. Lease licenses simply stop working after 30 days if a user fails to pay the next instalment. Can’t say fairer than that now, can we?

But what happens if you’re genuinely short of cash and can’t afford to make a payment at the end of a month? Not to worry. We understand that this sometimes happens, so — since you also have up to eight months in which to complete the six-payment scheme or 15 months in which to complete 12 payments — you are free to take a payment break and reactivate your plug-ins for another 30 days as soon as you pay the next instalment. Fair enough, eh? Fairer still, anyone already owning any number of Plugin Alliance plug-ins will be automatically recognised as such when logging into the Plugin Alliance web store so that they can always upgrade to the complete collection at the best possible price. Hypothetically speaking, say someone has half of the available plug-ins purchased and installed so far. Then the price to complete their collection would be approximately $1,200.00 USD — again, payable over six or 12 monthly instalments. In reality, of course, the web store always calculates an exact personal price accordingly. Couldn’t be simpler, surely?

So who better to formally introduce Plugin Alliance ALL Bundle than Plugin Alliance CEO Dirk Ulrich himself: “When we started Plugin Alliance, many users approached us and asked about an easy way to finance what they consider to be the best-sounding native audio plug-in collection available. After establishing our own license system in 2012, we are now able to let users experience the complete collection from day one while paying Plugin Alliance ALL Bundle off over six or 12 manageable payments. After putting years into the development of these plug-ins, I am proud and pleased to announce availability of Plugin Alliance ALL Bundle today!”

There you have it, then. Thanks to Plugin Alliance ALL Bundle, there has never been a better time than now to treat your recording, mixing, and mastering workflows to the best native plug-ins money can buy and also keep your bank manager happy while you’re at it! MIX NOW. PAY LATER.

The ALL Bundle is available to purchase for $2,388 USD.

elysia releases xfilter 500 true stereo EQ

Related: , , , , Posted in news on May 27, 2013 - comment 0 comments

elysia has announced the release of the xfilter 500, a true stereo EQ in 500 series format.

elysia xfilter 500

The xfilter 500 is a true linked stereo EQ in the 500 series format. It gives you the expensive sound of an all class-A equalizer in a surprisingly affordable package, with a precise stereo image based on computer-selected, stepped potentiometers and low tolerance film capacitors.

This EQ is serious about flexibility. It offers high and low shelf bands which can be switched into high and low cut filters with resonance, two mid peak filters with wide and narrow Q, plus additional passive LC stages with shielded coils for a glorious top end.

With its exceptionally open sound, straight transient projection and solid punch, the xfilter is the perfect match for your xpressor – or any other piece of delicious outboard gear!

xfilter 500 features

  • 100% Class-A Topology — Discrete input, output and mix stages plus the complete audio path running in constant class-A mode are the basis for an exceptionally transparent, wide and open sounding EQ.
  • True Stereo Operation — As one of the few exceptions in the market, the xfilter 500 processes both of its channels with just one set of controllers – a true stereo linked EQ.
  • Resonance High & Low Cut Filters — The shelving filters can be switched into high and low cut filters with an additional resonance peak. Not ordinary, but extremely useful.
  • Switchable Filter Quality — The quality of the peak filters can be switched from a wide to a narrow Q factor which remains independent from the setting of the gain controller.
  • Additional Passive High-Band — The beautiful sheen only passive filters can deliver… the xfilter 500 has it all. An additional LC filter with shielded coils gives you the ‘Passive Massage’.
  • Stepped Controllers — All potentiometers on the xfilter 500 have 41 steps, which is a great help for recalling your previous sessions fast and precisely.
  • Computer-Selected Potentiometers — Every single dual and quad layer pot we buy is measured with custom computer routines, and only the good ones go into production.
  • Special Low Tolerance Capacitors — The special series of film caps used for the xfilter 500 performs twice as good as the industry standard in terms of component tolerance.
  • Ground Layer Shield — One of the four layers of both PCBs is a full copper plane which helps to reduce interferences caused by electric fields.

The xfilter 500 is available to purchase fro $975 USD MAP ($1,049 MSRP) / 649 EUR ex. VAT where applicable.
