Prepare To Be Mpressed


Elysia’s first processor, the Alpha Compressor was launched last year and now the company have announced a second product - the mpressor - a new tool for creative dynamics processing. On top of the tried and tested standard features, Elysia say that the mpressor provides several special functions that create fat and freaky sounds by employing a punchy control behavior, colorations full of character and extreme settings. Besides classic tracking applications, they tell us that its favorite domains are groovy effect compression and creative sound design.
Here’s the rest of what Elysia have to say in their own words from their press release:
'Each of both linkable channels offers a switchable Auto-Fast function that allows very fast yet distortion-free compression without any artifacts. The Antilog circuit generates explicit compression effects such as pumping and breathing. The variable area filters impress sonic seals which range from discreet to striking with the possibility of a continuous frequency shift. Maximum Reduction is a novel concept that makes the complete intensity of the compression assessable with only one controller. Switchable external sidechain inputs make for further flexibility in terms of sound composition.
The circuit design of the mpressor is completely based on discrete analog technology. The entire signal processing is realized with single transistors in permanent Class A mode, and even the sidechain and power supply are composed of fully discrete circuits. Oversized power supplies, capsuled conductive plastic potentiometers, internal temperature stabilizers for critical components as well as special current feedback amplifiers 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.'
Pricing and Availability:
The mpressor will receive its premiere in Frankfurt/Main at this year’s Musikmesse at Hall 5.1 Stand D64. More information:
