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.

    Blown away by how this compressor can compress. (And I’m a compressor addict!) I can have this compressor act beautifully with a vocal track or absolutely smash — and color — a drum buss.

    It's very important to me when working on vocals to have several different options, styles and flavors of compression to achieve various techniques, and the mpressor is truly a special tool that I can use to get compression results distinct from any other.

    Seriously good compressor on the master channel. I use this for sorting out my mid/sides. It really controls my sides and keeps all the reverbs in place. Amazing plugin!
