No longer reliant on racks full of outboard gear, the Karacter 500 delivers elusive and highly desirable styles of tonal coloration. Designed with discrete class-A topology, it elevates even lo-fi sounds with its high-end touch. Whether you want to enhance your tracks or unleash creative destruction, it all comes down to the Karacter.
Unleash a World of Sonic Possibilities
The Elysia Karacter 500 is a powerful 500 Series distortion module, meticulously crafted with discrete Class A topology, to bring a stunning array of sonic options to your fingertips. From mastering-grade saturation to tube-style distortion and creative waveform manipulation, this versatile unit is an indispensable tool for any studio or live environment. Whether you seek subtle warmth or extreme sound sculpting, the Karacter 500 delivers, making it a must-have for musicians, producers, and sound engineers alike.
Unrivaled Flexibility for Creative Freedom
With two channels that can be used in dual mono, linked stereo, or M/S configurations, the Karacter 500 offers unparalleled flexibility in shaping your sound. Experience true dual mono operation, processing two independent signals simultaneously, or engage stereo link mode for seamless control over stereo sources. M/S unlinked mode empowers you to process mid and side signals independently, allowing you to craft intricate stereo spectra. Meanwhile, M/S linked mode ensures consistency in your stereo processing by treating both side signals as a single audio path.
Mastering-Grade Saturation for Sublime Tonal Enhancement
At the heart of the Karacter 500 lies its mastering-grade saturation capabilities. Adding unobtrusive coloration and thickness, this mode produces a soft characteristic curve while focusing on uneven harmonics (h3, h5, etc.). Easily blend the ideal amount of saturation with your dry signal using the integrated mix control, preserving your signal integrity while infusing it with rich character.
Tube-Inspired Distortion with Turbo Boost
In FET shred mode, the Karacter 500 generates tube-like asymmetrical distortion, allowing you to dial in everything from subtle harmonics to aggressive destruction. The Turbo Boost feature shifts the operating point of the distortion circuit, unlocking even more tonal possibilities and unleashing sonic mayhem when desired.
Fine-Tune Harmonics with the Color Filter
To further expand your tonal-color palette, the Karacter 500 is equipped with a Color Filter network. Tailor the harmonics-frequency relation to achieve your desired timbre and create distinctive sonic signatures that set your music apart.
Designed for Audiophiles, Built to Last
Crafted with the utmost attention to detail, the Elysia Karacter 500 is engineered using discrete Class A topology, ensuring high-end audio quality for even the most lo-fi sounds.
