Discrete Class-A Topology As a true elysia specialty, the audio path of the mpressor 500 is completely based on discrete circuitry and does not use any integrated circuits at all.
This switchable harmonics generator allows on-the-fly signal coloration and saturation effects capable of delivering a grittier flavor.
Inspired by its big brothers: The switchable semi automation for a perfect attack on the basis of the value set by the user.
This alternative characteristic of the release curve follows an antilogarithmic course instead of the standard linear progress and produces a much more striking result.
The compression curve bends and goes back down! Heavy pumping, backward sounds, etc. – perfect for very cool compression effects...
Gain Reduction Limiter
This unique limiter is not placed in the audio path as usual, but it restricts the control voltage of the compressor instead.
Analog Dynamic LED Meter
The gain reduction meter modulates its LEDs in their brightness in order to show the action of the compressor in a truly analog way: Fast and with smooth transitions.
Transconductance Amplifier The custom discrete gain reduction cell of the mpressor 500 provides low noise, extremely fast time constants and all the punch in the world.
All potentiometers of the mpressor 500 have 41 steps, which is a great help for recalling your previous sessions fast and precisely.
Ground Layer Shield
One of the six layers of both PCBs is a full copper plane which helps to reduce interferences caused by electric fields.Technical Data If you are interested in learning more about typical measurements and technical specifications of the mpressor 500, this is the right place to check.
