elysia nvelope Equalizer Dynamics (500 Series) || Analog Transient Shaper Module. 

Future Generation Transient Shaping. nvelope 500 is a powerful audio processor capable of making subtle or drastic changes to a sound by providing control over its attack and sustain characteristics. This is extremely useful for reshaping all sorts of individual tones, and is a wonderful tool in any mixing situation as well. Especially drums and other percussive signals will benefit big time from the nvelope’s magic. 

The nvelope 500 can effectively change the spatial perception of a signal, ranging from small/dry to large/wet. You can form a signal and enhance its cut in the mix without deforming it too much as you would by using excessive EQ and compression. 

Do you already know, that the Founder and CEO of elysia, Ruben Tilgner, invented the Transient Designer | Transient Shaper Technology in the late 90s? He’s the only one who developed Transient Shaper Hardware until today. That shows how complex this Technology is!  

5 reasons Why You Should Use the nvelope 500 (even though there are many more!) 

  • Build Quality. The nvelope 500, just like all our products, is designed, engineered and handcrafted in Germany. 
  • From the original inventor of the Transient Designer. The Transient Shaper- and Transient Designer- Technology was invented by our CEO, Ruben Tilgner, in 1998. The nvelope is the consequent and updated development of this technology! The next generation Transient Shaper.  
  • Class-A Topology. Consequently represents the art of discrete signal processing. 
  • Full Range Mode. Full Range mode is especially fast and easy to use, as all you need to do is dial in more or less attack and sustain by turning their specific controllers to the left (reduction) or to the right (increase). 
  • EQ Mode. It can also operated like an Equalizer. 

 Build Quality. The nvelope 500 is all about details. Every single of its many aspects – sound, features, circuitry, components, design, materials, manufacturing – has been thought over and over until there was just nothing left to improve. Basically, every single part of  our fine products is custom, and most of these are made according to our own designs and specs. 

Only the best components the market has to offer are good enough for the nvelope 500, and it shows. Each of our product is manually built to order and tested by ourselves, here at our headquarters in Germany. 

Our product benefits sum up in an audio quality that is beyond all doubt. Even when extreme settings are used, the sound always stays clean and powerful. 

Multi-Transient-Talent. The nvelope 500 operates independently of the specific level of a signal, and (unlike with compressors) you do not have to spend a lot of time trying to balance a set of complex controls to quickly get the results you seek. With its unique Dual Band mode, the nvelope 500 gives you enhanced control over processing, and can easily handle complex program material. Additionally, its dynamics sections can be bypassed, allowing it to function as a flexible high/low shelf EQ. 

Full Range Mode. The nvelope 500 is a powerful audio processor capable of making subtle or drastic changes to a sound by providing control over its attack and sustain characteristics. This is extremely useful for reshaping all sorts of individual tones, and is a wonderful tool in any mixing situation as well. It operates independently of the specific level of a signal, and (unlike with compressors) you do not have to spend a lot of time trying to balance a set of complex controls to quickly get the results you seek. Full Range mode is especially fast and easy to use, as all you need to do is dial in more or less attack and sustain by turning their specific controllers to the left (reduction) or to the right (increase). Similar to a compressor and unlike in Dual Band mode, you can use the Freq A controller to reduce the influence of low frequencies on the attack processing (higher frequency = less bass influence). 

Auto Gain. Boosting the attack in Full Range mode can sometimes result in some pretty huge level peaks. These can make your processed signal sound uneven, and in the worst case they will create the nasty kind of distortion you don’t want. The nvelope 500 solves this very conveniently with the Auto Gain function. This simple button makes the impulse shaper automatically compensate stronger level peaks, so this can be the solution for many level-related issues caused by the attack processing. By the way, Auto Gain is typically not needed in Dual Band operation and therefore not offered in this mode. Also, Auto Gain does not have any influence on a channel operating in EQ mode.
