Elysia releases alpha compressor plugin

Elysia alpha compressor plugin

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).

Elysia xpressor 500

Elysia has released the xpressor 500, an extremely versatile stereo compressor available in API’s 500 series format.

Its discrete audio path running in constant class-A mode provides a superior audio quality which combines a clear and open sound with a good lot of punch. With its many unique features taken from our flagship products, the xpressor 500 shines in many different applications: stereo buss compression, processing single signals, approaching dynamics in creative ways …

xpressor 500 features

  • Discrete Class-A Topology — As a 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.
  • Auto Fast — Inspired by its big brothers: the switchable semi automation for a perfect attack on the basis of the value set by the user.
  • Log Release — This alternative characteristic of the release curve follows a logarithmic course instead of the standard linear progress and results in a very gentle kind of compression.
  • Negative Ratios — The characteristic curve bends and goes back down! Heavy pumping, backward sounds, etc. – perfect for very cool compression effects.
  • Parallel Compression — Available directly on the unit: the direct and the compressed signal can be blended in any desired relation by simply turning the mix controller.
  • Sidechain Filter — A tunable low cut filter in the sidechain of the xpressor 500 avoids overcompression and pumping when there is a lot of low end energy in the mix.
  • Gain Reduction Limiter — This novel limiter is not placed in the audio path as usually, but restricts the control voltage of the compressor instead.
  • Warm Mode — The xpressor 500 offers a second switchable sound flavor by altering its frequency spectrum, harmonics and transient response.
  • 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.
  • Made in Germany — High grade components, solid aluminum knobs.

The xpressor 500 is now available to purchase for for $975 USD / 649 EUR (excl. VAT).

The Niveau Filter is available to download as a freeware effect plug-in for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS). A valid email address is required to request your download link.

Elysia has also released version 1.0.3 of its mpressor plugin, a compressor effect plug-in.

Changes in mpressor plugin v1.0.3

  • The emulated noise floor is now switchable.
  • The integrated niveau filter has been corrected in terms of its oversampling behavior.
  • There is a new installer for Digidesign’s Venue available.

elysia mpressor plugin

Elysia has released version 1.0.2 of the mpressor plugin, an extremely detailed emulation of the mpressor hardware compressor.

The mpressor plugin is the as close as it can get emulation of our famous creative compressor. Its all discrete circuitry and its special character have been translated into software in all the painstaking details by the specialists from brainworx. The result is an outstanding universal compressor as well as a dynamics effect machine which will significantly enhance the potentials of your sequencer.

Changes in mpressor plugin v1.0.2

  • RTAS/TDM: fixed control mappings for ICON center section.
  • VST3/AU: support silence flags.
  • VST3: fixed preset loading.
  • VST3: fixed hanging host meters on Windows.
  • Decorrelated noise floor.
  • Added TDM version.

The mpressor plugin is available to purchase for PC and Mac (RTAS/VST/AU/TDM) for $440 USD / 290 EUR. The TDM version (also includes native formats) is offered at a 25% introductory discount until 31 January, 2010 (regular price $590 USD / 390 EUR).

elysia mpressor plugin

Elysia has released the mpressor plugin, an extremely detailed emulation of the 5,000 USD all discrete class-A compressor.

The mpressor plugin is the as close as it can get emulation of our famous creative compressor. Its all discrete circuitry and its special character have been translated into software in all the painstaking details by the specialists from brainworx. The result is an outstanding universal compressor as well as a dynamics effect machine which will significantly enhance the potentials of your sequencer.

mpressor plugin features

  • True Emulation — The compression behavior and the sound character of the hardware have been recreated in a complex process to match the hardware as close as possible.
  • Oversampling — In order to achieve the best results also on lower sample rates, the mpressor plugin uses an increased internal resolution in these cases.
  • Mousewheel Support — Setting parameters with the mouse can be pretty annoying – for this reason the controllers of the mpressor can be easily moved with the mouse wheel.
  • Auto Fast — Originally developed for the alpha compressor, this switchable semi automation ensures 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 linear one 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 — The mpressor plugin of course also features another popular function of the hardware version: the easy yet very flexible Niveau Filter.
  • External Sidechain — You want to create frequency dependent compression or have it accented by the groove? The sidechain function makes it all possible!
  • Gain Reduction Limiter — This novel limiter is not placed in the audio path as usually, but restricts the virtual control voltage of the plugin instead.

The mpressor plugin is now for PC and Mac (RTAS/VST/AU) for the introductory price of 220 EUR (ex VAT) / $330 USD until November 30, 2009. TDM coming in December.

Elysia has announced the mpressor plugin, an emulation of the mpressor hardware compressor unit.

The mpressor plugin is the as close as it can get emulation of our famous creative compressor. Its all discrete circuitry and its special character have been translated into software in all the painstaking details by the specialists from brainworx. The result is an outstanding universal compressor as well as a dynamics effect machine which will significantly enhance the potentials of your sequencer.

The plugin has all the great functions of the hardware which can be combined in many ways: Auto Fast for attack makes life easy even on longer attack settings. The Anti Log function offers an alternative release curve that can be engaged for instant pumping effects. In addition to standard ratios, the mpressor also provides negative values. Combine this with its extremely fast attack times, and you will be able to create completely new signal envelopes.

The Gain Reduction Limiter regulates the virtual control voltage and keeps even the most extreme settings under control – completely independent from the threshold and ratio settings. The additional filter is a perfect fit for changing the compressed signal in its sound character. The possibility to control the mpressor by an external sidechain to get things grooving makes for further flexibility.

Whatever you are looking for: a high grade sum compressor, a flexible tool for single instruments or an inspiring dynamics effect processor – the mpressor delivers. Discover all the options.
