External Sidechain You want to create frequency dependent compression or have it accented by the groove? Gain Reduction Limiter: This novel limiter is not placed in the audio path as usual, but restricts the control voltage of the compressor instead. Developed by Brainworx, the mpressor plug-in is an exacting emulation of the high-end, Class-A hardware, perfectly capturing its unique features like gain reduction limiting, anti-log curves, and negative ratios. Its discrete audio path running in constant class-A mode combines a clear and open sound with a good lot of punch. Both the left and right channel control sections are identical, with the two bypass buttons and the Link button the left channel acts as master in link mode, and only the left-hand gain-reduction meter is active located between the channels, beneath the two gain-reduction meters. Parallel compression controls on the front panel allow you to easily blend the processed signal with the unprocessed whilst stabilising the dynamics. The mix controller of the xpressor makes it possible to cross-fade between the unprocessed and the compressed signals. Combine this with its extremely fast attack times, and you will be able to create completely new signal envelopes.
We like to try out a lot and are only satisfied when there is nothing left to improve. Longer settings reduce distortion significantly, but then the compressor is too slow for catching fast impulses. In this video, SoundPure Recording Engineer, Allen Palmer, starts off our Elysia video series with Acoustic Guitar. A specialty of the xpressor is the Gain Reduction Limiter for the control voltage. Switchable Release Characteristic: Smooth or crisp — the choice is yours. The Xpressor really does redefine what a stereo dynamics processor is capable of.
I wasn't involved with installing this plug-in as I've used on at the studio where I work only and don't own it. This limits the level of the gain-reduction control voltage, so that beyond a certain point no further gain reduction is applied. Heavy pumping, backward sounds, etc. Perfect for cool compression effects. We believe this is for a very good reason, and we just love the sound and flexibility of audio tools featuring this topology.
The spectrum of its options is simply amazing and real-world proof at the same time. The mpressor plugin is the perfect tool for modern dynamics processing. It would certainly take something a bit special. This allows parallel compression right in the box and supersedes additional routings in favor of a better signal quality. With Auto-Fast switched on, the attack time automatically adapts to the characteristics of the incoming audio, so that it is at its fastest on steeply rising transients.
Exceptions may only be possible with prior agreement of the vendor, and may be subject to a cancellation fee. At a negative ratio, the characteristic curve bends and returns back down after crossing the threshold. If you like what you hear check out this gear at SoundPure. In addition to the external sidechain input the xpressor features a send output, which can be used to feed a summed copy of the input signals e. The louder the input signal, the lower the output signal — perfect for groovy compression effects. Warm Mode: The xpressor offers a second switchable sound flavor by altering its frequency spectrum, harmonics and transient response. Negative ratios — what exactly does this mean? Would it actually be possible to build special gear with these features and sound characteristics? The clearly laid out functions get you going straight away, while the extended features let you treat dynamics like never before.
You want pristine sound and can't accept compromise in terms of signal quality. With this being in the box, it provides you with much better signal quality, and allows you to use extreme settings without ruining a track. The 41 steps make a precise recall very easy, and they provide a useful range of possible settings at the same time. The attack parameter is a very crucial factor for the operations of a compressor. Made in Germany: Outstanding component and build quality.
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. In the final video of our Elysia Xpressor series, SoundPure Recording Engineer, Allen Palmer, brings all the previously recorded tracks Electric, Acoustic, and Vocals and compresses them one more time for a final mix. Vintage King can help answer any and every question to help you make the right decisions for your sound. If you're looking for a go to compressor plug-in that is more versatile than most, the Elysia mpressor is definitely one to check out. This allows mid-level signals to be compressed quite heavily without reducing the dynamic range of very quiet or very loud signals. When you place your order, we will request the item from our supplier as soon as possible.
Its all discrete circuitry and its special character have been translated into software in all the painstaking details by the specialists from Brainworx. Log Release: This alternative characteristic of the release curve follows a logarithmic course instead of the standard linear progress and results in a very gentle kind of compression. This 100% discrete class-A analog beast provides an amount of openness and clarity unmatched in the dynamics processing world. The principle behind the niveau is quite similar to a pair of scales: Dependent on the gain setting around a variable center frequency, the high frequencies are boosted whereas the low frequencies are attenuated or vice versa. Slap on the Warm Mode and it just adds this fantastic grit and body to the bass! There was plenty enough gain to bring it up, and even being crushed like that, it was punchy as hell! Using advanced circuit modeling techniques, Brainworx faithfully emulated the all analog, all discrete circuit design of the hardware mpressor, right down to the single transistor signal processing and permanent class-A mode design.
