Elysia introduces the mpressor 500 compressor module

THe new switchable THD Boost feature enables on-the-fly signal coloration.

The new module offers a wide spectrum of unique dynamic shaping options.

Studio processor manufacturer elysia has unveiled the mpressor 500, the latest edition to its 500 series lineup.

The device offers the power of the firm’s rack-mount mpressor creative compressor in a 500 Series standard.

Like its bigger brother, the mpressor 500 combines serious punch with a full and detailed class-A sound. Its impressive tone and flexibility make it a consummate choice for recording and mixing, while its special features take it far beyond the borders of what conventional compressors can do.

Extreme time constants, negative ratios, Anti Log release, and elysia’s innovative gain reduction limiter provide a whole spectrum of unique dynamics shaping options.

A new feature of this 500 series module is its switchable THD Boost, allowing on-the-fly signal coloration and saturation effects capable of delivering a different, grittier flavour.

“It’s been a challenge to transfer such a sophisticated discrete design into the 500 series form factor,” said elysia head of development Ruben Tilgner.

“But, after using and listening to the final version of the mpressor 500, we are truly pleased with what we have achieved.”

The mpressor 500 is made in Germany, exclusively using top-quality components, gold-plated PCBs, a rugged 4mm aluminium front panel, and solid aluminium knobs.

It is available from any elysia dealer for $749.00 MAP ($805.00 MSRP), or 500 € net (plus VAT where applicable).
