Elysia releases nvelope 500 Impulse Shaper

Related: , , , , Posted in news on May 15, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Elysia has introduced the nvelope 500, a discrete class-A stereo impulse shaper dynamics processor.

The nvelope 500 is a powerful audio processor capable of making subtle or drastic changes to a sound by providing control over its attack and sustain characteristics. This is extremely useful for reshaping all sorts of individual tones, and is a wonderful tool in any mixing situation as well.

The nvelope 500 operates independently of the specific level of a signal, and (unlike with compressors) you do not have to spend a lot of time trying to balance a set of complex controls to quickly get the results you seek.

Elysia’s nvelope 500 provides enhanced control over processing.

nvelope 500 features

  • Discrete Class-A Topology – As a true elysia specialty, the audio path of the nvelope 500 is completely based on discrete circuitry and does not use any integrated circuits at all.
  • Full Range Mode – In Full Range mode, the attack and sustain intensity of a signal can be raised or reduced fast and efficiently with just two controllers.
  • Dual Band Mode – This mode functions basically the same as Full Range, but it provides more tweakability by assigning the attack and sustain controls to individual frequency selectors.
  • EQ Mode – The nvelope 500 can mutate into a two band equalizer with a high/low shelf characteristic, and even here the channel link for processing stereo material can be activated.
  • Mixed Mode – When Stereo Link mode is not active, the two individual channels can be used as completely different processors at the same time.
  • Dual Mono/Stereo Link – For ultimate flexibility, the nvelope 500 offers true dual mono and linked stereo operation as well – no matter if you are using it in Full Range, Dual Band or EQ mode.
  • Auto Gain – Should distortion or huge jumps in level occur as an unwanted side effect of the attack processing, the Auto Gain function will compensate and get the level right.
  • Stepped Potentiometers – The frequency potentiometers have 41 steps for an easy recall, while the gain pots have a center detent for finding their neutral position at once.

The nvelope 500 is available for $1049 MSRP / $975 MAP / 649 EUR excl. VAT.

David Siu takes the The Big 4 Bundle in Plugin Alliance Giveaway

Plugin Alliance The BIG 4 Bundle

David Siu – a recent graduate from Collin College (Plano/Dallas area) music program – has won the recent Big 4 Bundle giveaway at rekkerd.org.

David likes to compose anything “from urban styles to up-tempo dance, plus a bit of misc. experimental & jazz.”

On his website Resonative it says:

Music are messages. Sometimes it’s a story too long to tell, sometimes bits of feelings one cannot into words. Maybe that tiny slice of life at 10, or a faint whisper from the sky. And other times they just speak, without reason.

I write messages. Hope they speak to you.

After having a listen to some of his songs on SoundCloud, I caught up with David for some Q&A.

rekkerd: Could you share some details on your musical works?
David: I like many things so it’s a bit of master-of-none… But piano is my main instrument, so lots of my music stem from my own playing at the keyboard. I grew up with Japanese pop music, so lots of them kind of rub off from that.

rekkerd: How do you incorporate software and plugins in your creative processes?
David: They are big part of it! My whole rig is based around my Macbook Pro, so pretty much everything is done ITB (in the box, Ed.). I tend to do rough sketches/programming in DAW, work with the ideas away from the computer for some time, and finally finishing out ITB again. Love mixing with outboards, but nothing beats plugins for me under a deadline.

rekkerd: What are your first impressions of the Big 4 Bundle plug-ins?
David: Totally blown away. All of them add something pleasant with just a small dose yet faithful to the signal. Especially Elysia Alpha, which I’ve been eyeing for some time but refused to demo in fear of going broke… Thanks to Rekkerd I don’t have to anymore! All 4 had already walked themselves into mixes I’m working on. They aren’t unicorns that shoot rainbow skittles the moment you drop them in, but with a couple clicks at the right place they absolutely make things sing.

rekkerd: Anything you’d like to share with rekkerd.org readers?
David: According to my friend, watching a person (me) giggling while tweaking knobs on the screen is apparently very creepy… So don’t do that.

And please support your local young composers! Massive shoutout to Rekkerd and Plugin Alliance :D

Thank you David, and many thanks to all who participated in the giveaway.

Plugin Alliance Giveaway: The BIG 4 Bundle

Plugin Alliance

Dirk Ulrich of Brainworx recently launched the Plugin Alliance, a one-stop shop for several plug-in developers.

These currently include Maag Audio, Elysia, SPL, Vertigo, Brainworx, with plug-ins from Millenia, Chandler, Neve, and Charter Oak to be expected in 2012.

Easy license management, hassle-free installation, great sound and reliability. One license file for all your plugins, that´s it.

While I do use a few plug-ins that require a hardware dongle, I totally prefer not having to use them. I think it’s pretty exciting Plugin Alliance has created this software based system for managing all licenses of Plugin Alliance plug-ins in one place.

If you are interested in checking out how all this works, just head on over to the Plugin Alliance website and get some (or all) of the free plug-ins from Elysia (niveau filter), SPL (Free Ranger), and Brainworx (bx_cleansweep V2 & bx_solo).

But wait, there’s more!

This bundle will give you a rock solid and tight mastering chain or stereo bus setup. The bx_XL, Passeq and alpha Compressor all work in M/S modes optionally.

To enter the giveaway you need to answer the following questions:

  1. bx_XL is based upon the M/S technology from which other Brainworx plug-in?
  2. Which switchable frequencies are available for the sidechain hipass filters on the Vertigo VSC-2?
  3. The elysia alpha compressor plugin offers a signal coloration different from the hardware unit, what is this mode called?

Elysia releases Preset Package by Denis Gökdag

Elysia Preset Package

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.
