Must Have For The Studio
JChong, 19.08.2020
I got a pair of Skulpters for recording synths and keyboard sounds. My first experience with them was in another recording studio which had a pair for drum overheads and i really liked how open they sounded on the overheads. Took a bit of time to research on the features and realised that for such a tiny unit it comes feature-packed!

1. Beautiful lo-cut filter which just works
2. Two different saturation shape knobs to for tone shaping on instruments and vocals
3. In-built VCA compressor which sounds great on anything you put it through

The demonstration on the Elysia youtube page really did help solidify the reason for buying a pair and I think I'll keep them for a long time. I had an issue with the Comp indicator LED which remained lit for a short while when my lunchbox was on but it slowly dimmed off after a while. Ingo from Elysia recommended that I send it back for repair and even though they didn't find any fault with the internal components they kindly replaced the LED light for me. Took about 2 months to get it back but Thomann and Elysia was extremely helpful with the after service given that I'm actually halfway around the world.

For those who are looking for a solid workhorse the Skulpter is something to consider. Just as a side note, it's a bright preamp! So if you are looking to pair it with a dark-sounding microphone it will work perfectly.

Preamplificatore moderno
Master_T, 11.02.2020
Suono moderno e versatile, controlli completi e che permettono di "scolpire" il suono a piacimento, ingresso DI perfetto su tutto, il compressore "mono-controllo" è tarato molto bene per varie sorgenti.

Genau sowas habe ich gesucht! Von clean bis verbogen kann ich alles damit anstellen. Verarbeitung ist über jeden Zweifel erhaben, Finish super, Klang und Features sind einfach nur TOP. Und dazu noch aus deutschen Landen. Perfekt

Elysia Skulpter
MARAX, 15.04.2021
Tja, meer dan tevreden.
misschien nog veel zijdiger dan duurdere pre-amps.
compressie ok, DI Goed.
Tone control is waar t om draait.
van clean tot donker. van clean neve tot donker chandler.
bij mij krijgen ze soms meer aandacht dan de neve's.
te gek voor tracking, re-amping, daw/plugs enhancer en meer.
ik gebruik m voor synths, drums (electronic prod) ed
