From Mixing to Mastering, This Compressor Has You Covered

Get the elysia alpha compressor plug-in for a spot-on emulation of their famous hardware mastering compressor. And while the alpha compressor plug-in is a powerful tool for full stereo mixes, its amazing sonic flexibility makes it perfect for individual tracks too. The alpha compressor can sound transparent, but you also have a warm mode that adds rich character to your sound. Parallel compression is built right in so you can get that epic New York drum sound, by blending compressed and dry signals to taste. Consider you also get sidechain capability and both stereo and mid-side modes, and you'll see that the elysia alpha compressor plug-in is ready to be your go-to dynamics processor.

Elysia alpha compressor Stereo and Mid-side Compressor Plug-in at a Glance:
  • This workhorse compressor is ready for both mixing and mastering
  • Incredible array of sonic options lets you add just the right character, or none at all
  • Mid-side matrix makes this a powerful mastering tool
This workhorse compressor is ready for both mixing and mastering

The elysia alpha compressor plug-in is so versatile, elysia actually gives you two slightly different plug-ins with different interfaces. The alpha compressor's full interface gives you the powerful control you need when mastering, with full access to all parameters. You also get a streamlined plug-in with a simpler interface that's perfect when you're mixing - you have access to the parameters you need on a track-by-track basis, without the clutter of more esoteric parameters.

Incredible array of sonic options lets you add just the right character, or none at all

One of the reasons the elysia alpha compressor plug-in is so versatile is because you have a lot of different options for how the compressor responds and sounds. There's a feed forward/feed back toggle that can switch between a smooth and even sound, or a harder and more aggressive sound. An included Niveau Filter lets you alter the tonal balance of a track by changing the proportion of high frequencies to low frequencies. Factor in parallel compression, a soft clip limiter, and a switchable warm mode for coloration, and you can use the elysia alpha compressor for much more than basic dynamics processing.

Mid-side matrix makes this a powerful mastering tool

Based on elysia's beloved mastering compressor, it's natural that the alpha compressor plug-in is perfect for fine-tuning full mixes. The mid-side matrix in the alpha compressor lets you compress the center components of a mix like vocals, while leaving the stereo image untouched. Or use it the other way around - compress the stereo components of your mix for extra width, while leaving the center untouched for a more natural sound.

Elysia alpha compressor Stereo and Mid-side Compressor Plug-in Features:
  • Powerful compressor plug-in with two different interface options (mixing/mastering)
  • Sidechain with variable filter lets you achieve frequency-dependent compression
  • Mid-side mode is perfect for mastering, with individual control over middle and side mix elements
  • Auto Fast mode optimizes attack and release times based on your audio
  • Niveau filter lets you shape the balance of low and high frequencies for sound shaping
  • Parallel compression lets you blend compressed and dry signals to maintain dynamic interest
  • Based on elysia's hardware mastering compressor
The elysia alpha compressor is ready to be your new go-to compressor!
