About

Founded in Nettetal Germany in 2005 by Ruben Tilgner and Dominik Klaßen, elysia began as an obsession: Would it actually be possible to really build the special machine they had in mind, with all the features and sound characteristics they dreamed of? The answer, in the form of their first and still flagship product, the alpha compressor, was yes!

Since then, elysia has become a union of creative audio enthusiasts who have a clearly defined objective: The development and production of high-quality audio equipment featuring that certain something. Elysia do not want to settle for the status quo and rehash existing concepts time and again. Their goal is to adapt their products to current demands in everyday studio life.

These are the fundamentals on which elysia products are built. The elysia name has come to represent the highest sound quality, the exclusive use of top grade components, perfect workflow and reliability, and the implementation of innovative features without voodoo, but with a real profit in daily usage.

    I must say wooow what a plugin... makes me wish I really had a chance to try the real unit... I still want the real hardware now more than ever... I must say I never wanted to purchase something so fast before :) Now where can I get the money for the hardware unit?

    I released my band's debut album on Monday after having done the final mastering with the elysia alpha plugin during the weekend. It was wonderful to be able to use this compressor in unlinked M/S mode, Auto Fast does wonders and I was surprised at how effective just a touch of the Niveau Filter could be to homogenize different songs. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

    I think the elysia nvelope is a game changer. I use the hardware every time I track and I just started to use the software in the mix. It’s a great, unique tool that I find indispensable.
