We carry over 250 lines of audio hardware and software, as well as an exclusive private stock of vintage recording consoles, outboard signal processing gear, and microphones. To get the best from the less obvious features requires a little experimentation, but the manual provides some clearly illustrated examples of different settings and goes into some detail to explain how and why they work. An adapter or transformer may be required for these items to work properly and safely in your country. The additional filter is a perfect fit for changing the compressed signal in its sound character. It is the time constants and especially the release parameter that decide if the processing of a compressor is obvious or unobtrusive to the ear. All Products are new unless stated, and include a minimum of 2 years warranty. 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 result is an outstanding universal compressor as well as an inspiring dynamic effects machine which will significantly enhance the potentials of your host software. 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 result is an outstanding universal compressor a. This lets you use compression exactly on time or out of time, which can then be varied on-the-fly, making static material sound much more interesting and full of energy. The xpressor features stepped potentiometers for all its parameters throughout. If you like what you hear check out this gear at SoundPure.
Unfortunately it has a disadvantage, too: When the standard driver units are used, the change between two values always happens abruptly. The beginning was an obsession. To enhance transients without squashing everything else, the Gain Limit function is a real bonus, and I found myself using this a lot to tame the effects of hard compression while still nailing the level. In other words, it boosts the high frequencies beyond the user-adjustable centre frequency and cuts the low frequencies at the same time, or vice versa. If the input level dropped below this limit, the fader would be moved up correspondingly. Perfect for cool compression effects.
Once the product is delivered, you have 30 days to decide that you definitely want to keep it. Its enhanced functions far exceed the potential of normal compressors, giving users previously unimagined options for mastering and mixing. It features a tunable low-cut filter in the sidechain which avoids overcompression and pumping when you can have a large amount of low-end energy in your mix. A specialty of the xpressor is the Gain Reduction Limiter for the control voltage. Stereo buss compression, processing single signals, approaching dynamics in creative ways — the xpressor 500 shines in many different applications. Then the attack time directly and automatically returns to its original setting. Some pretty aggressive mix bus settings are suggested, which, again, would suit dance music or electronica — but don't worry if that isn't your cup of tea, because all of the more usual 'safe and sweet' settings also work extremely well.
And should you take your equipment on the road, you'll certainly enjoy the rigid full aluminum enclosure cutting weight into half. This version eliminates some of the more advanced features to make it easy to get great sounding compression quickly. 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. Our most important rule is that the ear always comes first, but we also like to please the eye by reflecting the inner values of our devices on the outside with an exclusive design. Gain Reduction Limiter: Ultimate control on the compression process. A creative cook, however, focuses on his own special recipes and ingredients.
Slap on the Warm Mode and it just adds this fantastic grit and body to the bass! The reason for this is the great lot of low end energy the kick produces, causing high amounts of gain reduction on the complete mix. You're looking for the Xpressor. Despite this incredible flexibility, though, the designers have obviously worked hard to produce a design that means the engineer doesn't have to work too hard to achieve the desired results. Please note: This item requires a 500 Series Rack for operation. But because of the inertia of the needle these meters are only useful with moderate time parameters.
Now you can use even extreme compression settings without killing a track by winning the loudness war. In this video, SoundPure Recording Engineer, Allen Palmer, continues our Elysia video series with Vocals. Besides, we never discard unconventional ideas airily we test all of them and never form our opinion before doing so. The mix controller of the xpressor makes it possible to cross-fade between the unprocessed and the compressed signals. External Sidechain You want to create frequency dependent compression or have it accented by the groove? With its massively thick front panel, custom metal knobs and annular red lights around the buttons, the Mpressor certainly looks built to impress — but is it equally impressive inside? However, if the input signal got even louder, the fader could not be moved down any further because of the duct tape limit, and then the output signal would become louder again in correspondence with the input signal. Stereo buss compression, processing single signals, approaching dynamics in creative ways the Xpressor shines in many different applications. This affects the frequency spectrum, the harmonics and the transient response at the same time.
. It gives the user an emulation of the sound and features the hardware is known and popular for — programmed by the code experts from Brainworx. Some items are only eligible for money back guarantee if they are returned to us unused and sealed in the original packaging, and in the case of software, unregistered. This limiter is not placed in the audio path where you would usually find it, but in the control path of the compressor. We do not want to settle for the status quo and rehash existing concepts time and again. At a negative ratio, the characteristic curve bends and returns back down after crossing the threshold.
The button I had expected to find, but didn't, was one that switched the meters from output level to gain reduction. Its all discrete circuitry and its special character have been translated into software in all the painstaking details by the specialists from Brainworx. Increasing the attack time makes the same 'normal' mode very effective for beefing up drums or bass, again without losing definition. In addition to the full-blown Mastering version of the alpha compressor, Brainworx, in close collaboration with elysia, has also developed a simpler Mixing version. For example, if you set the attack to 80 ms and then engage the Auto Fast mode, the attack time will be shortened automatically on fast and loud signal impulses. Download the fully-functional 14-day demo no dongle required! Its all discrete circuitry and its special character have been translated into software in all the painstaking details by the specialists from Brainworx.
Well, since then Elysia has become a union of creative audio enthusiasts who have a clearly defined objective: the development and production of high-quality studio equipment featuring that certain something. The Anti Log function offers an alternative release curve that can be engaged for instant pumping effects. The xpressor follows this philosophy consequently. Creativity Of course, technology is only a means of achieving something else. In this video, SoundPure Recording Engineer, Allen Palmer, starts off our Elysia video series with Acoustic Guitar. Used as a 'standard' compressor, the Mpressor behaves very predictably and smoothly, reducing the dynamic range without significantly changing the character of the sound, unless you deliberately get very heavy-handed. Oversampling In order to achieve the best results also on lower sample rates, the mpressor plugin uses an increased internal resolution in these cases.
