Elysia are a company formed out of audio enthusiasm, one of the founders Ruben Tilgner has a history of successful development projects, being responsible for SPL’s Transient Designer, GainStation and the MixDream for starters. The alpha compressor is the first product from elysia and is a high end tool designed for mastering and sophisticated recording applications. Its switchable MS matrix enables the separate processing of middle and side signals. The control mode and entire sound character can easily be adapted to the source material by employing adjustable side-chain and audio filters. Original and compressed signals can be cross-faded by using a mix stage which provides onboard parallel compression. Additional Soft-Clip limiters can be utilized to protect following AD converters from clipping. All these functions are switch-able via relays individually and can be combined with each other flexibly. The alpha compressor’s design is based on 100 percent discrete analog technology. The entire signal processing chain is realized with single transistors in permanent Class-A mode, and even side-chain and power supply are composed of fully discrete circuits. Oversized power supplies, incremental and capsuled conductive plastic potentiometers with detents, internal heating elements for critical components as well as four high-quality toroidal transformers are part of the technical finesse. The combination of these elements aims at the maximum of reachable signal quality and guarantees clean and powerful sound characteristics even when extreme settings are used. If you’re going to the Musik Messe (Frankfurt March 19th-1st April), you can see it there in Hall 5.1 Booth D64. If not, don’t worry, we’ll be there and will take a look for you. We weren't supplied with any price information , but one suspects it will be something commensurate with it’s high-end label.
