Elysia’s Alpha Compressor Plug-In
Elysia has debuted their new Alpha Compressor plug-in for Mac and PC. the alpha compressor plugin is the software emulation of elysia’s discrete class-A mastering compressor. It claims to offer all the functions of its analog counterpart and was programmed by the geeks at Brainworx.
The set of features makes the alpha a complete dynamics toolbox: Mid/Side and stereo processing, feedback and feed forward compression, Auto fast modes for attack and release, integrated audio and sidechain filters, onboard parallel compression, switchable signal coloration as well as additional Soft Clip Limiters can be freely combined according to the users’s specific needs.
But not only the final stage of mastering can profit from this processor with a focus on transparent compression: A special mixing version with a reduced user interface has been added for fast and easy mix buss operation. The plug-in license includes all the important formats in one: TDM, RTAS, VST, AU and Venue. The native formats are available as of now, while TDM and Venue will follow in January 2011.
