You're looking for a stereo compressor. You want pristine sound and can't accept compromise in terms of signal quality. You don't want a one trick pony, but a flexible machine that covers all the standards and then some. And ruining yourself in order to get it is not really an option...

You're looking for the xpressor. Its discrete audio path running in constant class-A mode combines a clear and open sound with a good lot of punch. The clearly laid out functions get you going straight away, while the extended features let you treat dynamics like never before.

Stereo buss compression, processing single signals, approaching dynamics in creative ways – the xpressor shines in many different applications. And should you take your equipment on the road, you'll certainly enjoy the rigid full aluminum enclosure cutting weight into half.

Features


Discrete Class-A Topology
As a true elysia specialty, the audio path of the xpressor is completely based on discrete circuitry and does not use any integrated circuits at all.
Learn more

Auto Fast
Inspired by its big brothers: the switchable semi automation for a perfect attack on the basis of the value set by the user.
Learn more

Log Release
This alternative characteristic of the release curve follows a logarithmic course instead of the standard linear progress and results in a very gentle kind of compression.
Learn more

Negative Ratios
The characteristic curve bends and goes back down! Heavy pumping, backward sounds, etc. – perfect for very cool compression effects.
Learn more

Parallel Compression
Available directly on the unit: the direct and the compressed signal can be blended in any desired relation by simply turning the mix controller.
Learn more

Sidechain Filter
A tunable low cut filter in the sidechain of the xpressor avoids overcompression and pumping when there is a lot of low end energy in the mix.
Learn more

External Sidechain
You want to create frequency dependent compression or have it accented by the groove? The external sidechain input makes nearly everything possible!
Learn more

Gain Reduction Limiter
This novel limiter is not placed in the audio path as usual, but restricts the control voltage of the compressor instead.
Learn more

Warm Mode
The xpressor offers a second switchable sound flavor by altering its frequency spectrum, harmonics and transient response.
Learn more

Analog Dynamic LED Meter
The gain reduction meter modulates its LEDs in their brightness in order to show the action of the compressor in an analog way: fast and with smooth transitions.

Stepped Potentiometers
All potentiometers on the xpressor have 41 steps, which is a great help for recalling your previous sessions fast and precisely.
