Best compressor in its price range!
22.09.2014
One of my favorite 500 series units is the Elysia Xpressor 500. It's a real swiss army knife: it can be transparent as air or it can be used to really smash the signal with a lot of color. The build quality is awesome and the unit looks really nice. Knobs feel sturdy and are easy to handle. Also the amount of controllable features is perfect for the size of a double wide 500 series unit. Even my stubby fingers fit perfectly to dial the knobs. Elysia has come up with nice and innovative ideas like the negative ratio that can cause really strange results if wanted. I also like the "warm mode" that makes the end result softer without sounding muddy. If you are looking for a compressor that sounds professional and is able to do lot of different dynamic sculpting then the Xpressor is yout top choice!

Useful tool
Fede83, 24.04.2019
Nothing incredibly sounding, it does what it promises. Really useful in terms of funcionalities and features (negative ratios, scf, gain reduction limit) and elegant in its modern suit. Built like tank, nice feeling under the fingers and nice leds. Stepped pots so easy to recall and overall good value for money. I use it especially on drum rooms, toms, percussions. Many say it works incredibly well on bass but I normally go for something less transparent (1176 / API others). Same for 2-bus, where I like to have something tougher and less transparent but when it's a matter of a soft limiting, that's a great tool though.
