Nettetal, Germany – High-end studio processor manufacturer elysia is pleased to announce the release of a rack version of their successful nvelope impulse shaper. This stereo dynamics processor is 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.
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.
“Since releasing the 500 series nvelope in May 2012, we’ve had quite a few requests for a stand-alone version”, says elysia co-founder Dominik Klassen. “Consequently, we expect the rack version to be very well received.”
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.
It is available immediately at $1679 MSRP ($1499 MAP).
