Elysia has released a 19-inch rack version of the xpressor, a hardware compressor unit.
Many of you have asked for this, so we have created this 19“ version which comes in a full aluminum enclosure, making it very light and rock solid at the same time.
Further additions to the xpressor are send and return connectors for an external sidechain, plus a superior linear power supply with a shielded toroidal transformer. And just like with our ‘bigger’ machines, you’ll find no cables in the complete audio path at all.
Looking for a great sounding, super flexible discrete class-A stereo compressor? The xpressor is shipping right now, and it is more affordable than you might think…
The xpressor is now available for $1,499 USD / €990 EUR (excl. VAT).
Elysia is also offering a 25% software discount:
The alpha compressor, the mpressor and the alpha & mpressor bundle are availabe at 25 % discount in the elysia online store until 15 September 2011.
- 25 % discount code for payments in USD: 49ZO0J1FMY14PGZ6TMGPOYEZ

Elysia has announced the release of a Preset Package featuring presets for all Elysia plug-ins by Denis Gökdag.
We have received quite some requests for presets ever since we have started to release our products as plugins. While discussing this at the Musikmesse 2011, sound designer and early elysia adopter Denis Goekdag kindly offered his support.
Denis started straight away and created ten presets for each of the four elysia plugins currently available. On top of this, we have added the suggested settings from the alpha compressor and mpressor manuals.
Of course these presets can only be starting points for your own explorations. Please keep in mind that especially the threshold and ratio values have to be adapted to your specific audio material…
The Elysia Preset Package is available as a free download here.

Elysia has released the alpha compressor plugin, the software reincarnation of its famous mastering compressor.
It gives you a painstaking emulation of the sound and features the hardware is known and popular for – programmed by the code experts from Brainworx.
But not only the final stage of mastering will profit big time from this ultimate dynamics processor. In fact, the compression section alone is such a useful tool that we have decided to include a dedicated mixing version with a reduced interface. You might want to use this on every single track of your DAW…
alpha compressor features
- Integrated M/S Matrix – Mid/Side and stereo processing modes.
- Auto Fast – Perfect attack and release in any situation.
- Feed Forward & Feedback – Two selectable compressor characteristics.
- Sidechain Filter – Frequency selective compression.
- Parallel Compression – Mixing direct and compressed signals.
- Soft Clip Limiter – More headroom, more loudness.
- Audio Filter – Tweaking the sonic structure easily.
- Warm Mode – Instant signal coloration.
The alpha compressor plugin is available to purchase for PC and Mac (TDM/RTAS/VST/AU), priced at the introductory price of 169 EUR until 31 December, 2010 (regular price 199 EUR, prices excl. VAT).
