A good colour module in a compact 500 series format
sean32767, 15.05.2017
I bought the Elysia Karacter to sit after my Xpressor 500 module, also by Elysia.

It has a very warm tone and low saturation levels -- a sweet spot for the music I am doing. However it does overdrive very nicely, perfect if you want to crush drums without going overboard like some bitcrushers will often do to sound.

I would recommend if you are using it for electronic music, drums/etc. Not sure how useful it would be for other genres but you never know.

Good audio tool
17.06.2016
Elysia Karacter is a good audio tool. I got it for a week, i used it a pair of times. I think it shines when you work with highs and low frecuencies of a sound. It makes emerge nicely burned both frequency zones (that just my opinión).
You can get from a really hi fi top frecuencies (for pop and techno, think in Drake "hotline bling hihat). And for rock you can use it quiter.
I've not tested Karacter in mastering function yet.
And then is the mi/side, mono or stereo options.
I've used it in kick and snare, both in mono function, i think kickdrum in turbo boost mode.
Drive, colour and mix knobs are the key.
Lot of fun and possibilities are coming with this Elysia Karacter.
