elysia Releases nvelope Rack
September 10, 2012 by Janice Brown
German audio manufacturer elysia – makers of the mpressor and xpressor – has released the rack version of their nvelope impulse shaper following the success of the 500 series nvelope released this past Spring.
The nvelope is a stereo dynamics processor capable of making subtle or drastic changes to a sound by altering its impulse structure, providing direct control over the envelope of a signal by shaping the intensity of its attack and sustain.
elysia says of the nvelope:
“It is primarily intended to shape individual signals, but it can also be useful while mixing, as it can subtly shift a sound towards the front of a mix using more attack and less sustain, or blend it gently into the background by reducing its attack and increasing its sustain. Another powerful and unique feature of the nvelope is the enhanced tweakability offered in Dual Band mode. Individual frequency controls for attack and sustain yield precise results while avoiding unwanted artifacts, even when utilized on complex material like a summing bus.
The nvelope offers true dual mono or linked stereo operation in Full Range, Dual Band or EQ mode. It is made in Germany exclusively using top quality components, gold plated PCBs, a rugged 4mm aluminum front panel and solid aluminum knobs.”
The rack series nvelope is available now at $1,679 MSRP ($1,499 MAP).
