Lots of compressors can do one thing well, but the elysia xpressor 500 brings a new level of versatility to your 500 Series rack. Discrete Class A circuitry keeps your sound intact, and you'll find the two channels of the xpressor 500 can easily handle any compression task. At Sweetwater, we especially love the Auto Fast feature, switchable semi-automation that lets you achieve the perfect attack. What's more, the elysia xpressor 500 features stepped pots, so you can always repeat your results. Great compressor!

Your ears will tell you what your wallet won't perceive

Bang for the buck would describe it if not for the inherent "well, good for th emoney, but I'm still not getting something GREAT" reaction we all have when we hear that term. This is something. For what I'll call a "serious" home studio guy like myself, who was considering buying an SSL Bus comp, this was a home run. Picked one up and haven't looked back - awesome for stereo (or mono) tracking and sounds huge on the mix bus. Love it, love it, love it. The Auto-fast feature is a favorite. Is it going to humble an SSL or $7000 Shadow Hills Master Comp? Of course not. But you can bet your boots it will be anything but the weak link in your mix or master if you don't have a sky-high budget like most of us. Forget what you see with your eyes and perceive with your wallet compared to the competition - use your ears and hear this unit on your mixes and you'll fall in love with it, plain and simple.
