Unleash Your Audio Creativity with the Elysia Xpressor 500 Series Stereo Compressor
High-Quality Analog Dynamics Processor
The Elysia Xpressor is a top-of-the-line analog dynamics processor designed to deliver professional-grade audio processing in a compact 500 Series format. Its high-quality circuitry ensures transparent and clean signal processing, making it ideal for use in recording studios, audio production facilities, and live sound applications.
Sleek and Robust Design
The Xpressor boasts a sleek and sturdy design, characteristic of Elysia’s professional audio equipment. Its rugged build is built to withstand the demands of studio and live environments, and it fits seamlessly into any standard 500 Series rack.
Fully Discrete Circuitry
With a fully discrete circuitry design, the Xpressor utilizes individual components instead of integrated circuits (ICs). This choice ensures optimal signal integrity and audio quality, setting it apart from processors that use IC-based designs.
Versatile Compression Modes
The Xpressor offers a range of compression modes to suit various audio scenarios. Classic compression parameters like Ratio, Threshold, and Attack/Release settings are available, alongside unique Elysia-developed modes, including Auto Fast and Anti Log, providing advanced compression capabilities.
Dual-Mono and Stereo Linking
Users can choose between dual-mono mode, allowing independent compression settings for each channel, or stereo mode with both channels linked. This flexibility enables precise control over the compression of stereo material while maintaining consistency across the stereo image.
Adjustable Sidechain Filters
The Xpressor features adjustable sidechain filters, allowing users to tailor the compressor’s response based on the frequency content of the input signal. This feature empowers sound engineers to focus compression on specific frequency ranges, enhancing the compressor’s versatility.
Gain Reduction Limiter
Elysia has incorporated a gain reduction limiter into the Xpressor to prevent excessive gain reduction and unwanted artifacts during heavy compression. This ensures that the audio remains transparent and distortion-free, even under extreme compression scenarios.
Parallel Compression with Blend Function
A standout feature of the Xpressor is its “Blend” function, enabling parallel compression. With this capability, users can mix the compressed and uncompressed signals together, allowing them to maintain the dynamics of the original audio while adding controlled compression to specific elements.
Precise Metering and Visual Feedback
The Xpressor is equipped with LED metering, providing accurate visual feedback on gain reduction and output levels. This feature enables sound engineers to monitor the compression process effectively, ensuring precise control over the audio dynamics.
Optional Stereo Width Control
Some versions of the Xpressor include a Stereo Width control, enabling users to adjust the stereo image’s width. This additional feature offers further manipulation possibilities for stereo material, making the Xpressor even more versatile in various mixing scenarios.
