The Ultimate Mastering Tool
The gold standard in analog M/S mastering compressors - elysia´s alpha compressor is available in a supremely accurate emulation plugin for a fraction of the price of the hardware version.
The hardware alpha compressor is coveted for its professional dynamics processing, featuring innovative functions and absolutely uncompromising sound quality. It set new standards for audio mastering thanks in part to its M/S processing, parallel compression, and highly-responsive limiters and audio filters among other features.
This 100% discrete class-A analog beast provides an amount of openness and clarity unmatched in the dynamics processing world. Every part of its signal processing is based on single transistors running in class-A mode. Even the sidechain and power supply use discrete circuits. All components are of the highest grade available and exclusively chosen according to their sonic excellence.
These benefits add up to an audio quality that is truly unrivaled. Even when extreme settings are used, the sound characteristics stay clean and powerful. The alpha compressor delivers the “this is it” feeling of a finished song. Its enhanced functions far exceed the potential of normal compressors, giving users previously unimagined options for mastering and mixing. No wonder it is considered a mastering studio gem.
Using Brainworx’s advanced circuit modeling techniques, the alpha compressor plugin captures every nuance of its brilliant hardware bretheren and delivers it to your desktop where multiple instances of this beauty are available in just a few clicks.
In addition to the full-blown Mastering version of the alpha compressor, Brainworx, in close collaboration with elysia, has also developed a simpler Mixing version. This version eliminates some of the more advanced features to make it easy to get great sounding compression quickly.
