elysia skulpter 500

Posted on: Wednesday 25th of April 2018

elsyiaElysia have demonstrated a single-width 500 module featuring preamp, filters, harmonics, dynamics and a balanced DI “everything you’ll ever need in front of your DAW” as they describe it, with the typical elysia attention to minimal-path high quality audio circuitry.

The preamp is a Class-A design, and instead of using potentiometers, Elysia have incorporated single resistors controlled by a relay cascade. This combines with stepped controllers for completely repeatable settings. Sound shaping is via a ‘Mojo machine’ with filters and harmonics, and the low end can be cleaned up with a variable high-pass filter. A fixed ratio compressor has a single knob controlling threshold. There’s a front-panel DI input, and both inputs (XLR and DI) can handle levels up to +19dBu. Elysia have indicated the pricing may be expected to be somewhere between the Mpressor 500 and their double-wide 500 modules.
