Wow

Bahram, 18.12.2014
Amazing piece of kit, I now have an addiction to the series 500 modules, this is my 3rd purchase as I lacked and eq in my lunchbox.
After a little research I narrowed it down to this eq from other reviews and also price.
For the price this eq is amazing. very transparent and clean. no matter how hard you drive it it still doesn't over do it, it has a nack of bringing things out of the mix and cleaning them up without destroying the sound or adding any unwanted frequencies.

im running almost everything through it now and when I compare what I had before to what I have now mixdown wise things have stepped un another level thanks to the xfliter 500.

Wonderful EQ

randomowitsch, 05.06.2014
I had before the purchase of the xFilter already an xPressor from elysia as a 19 "rack device and since the quality completely convinced me, I was sure that the EQ will be no less good (Bento 10), it works immediately, and the sound is convincing. Beautiful, solid basses, which I have so with no plugin gotten I get here in turn.
Just like the mids and trebles, they feel 'more compact', 'real' and more solid than in digital editing. The strength of digital EQs is in my opinion rather in the narrow band equalization, which is not feasible with the xFilter. The quality is chosen relatively wide, if also in 2 stages switchable. The other features are well spread in the numerous discussions in trade magazines, which I will not repeat here.
But I can confirm the consistently positive conclusion of the testers that it works as advertised, the sound always remains beautifully organic and never works artificially. Since I only use it on the sum before an xPressor so to speak as mastering EQ, the concept as a consistent stereo device for the operation is perfect and much more pleasant and effective than with my dual mono EQs (Neve 8803 and Calrec PQ1549). That is why he will stay there for the time being. But I am almost sure that I am (at least) another for stereo instruments in the mix. I mix and master mainly jazz and have been looking for a long time a good EQ for the editing of the grand piano - the Neve is for me not optimal, the comes great with the drums. I think with the wing could the xFilter shine (on everything else synonymous :-).

Super, especially when working on several projects in parallel, is the possibility of exact recall with the help of the rastered but still very finely graduated controls. For me this was with a decision criterion and that is perfectly solved by elysia (just like the xPressor).
A criticism would be for me the slightly lower headroom compared to (other) devices. This is certainly partially the 500 format owed, whereby I unfortunately have no comparison to other modules. Since there is no override display, you have to take a little care. For me, no problem, since I would rather my converters in the green area.
All in all, a super-successful equalizer, which, though transparent, can give almost every audio signal more 'more'. My fear that the transparency could be boring is completely unfounded, the power and the luster that the xFilter can lend to the signals is the comparatively small money more than worth.
Thanks elysia!
