Overview

The original nvelope hardware is a powerful dynamics 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. Designed by Ruben Tilgner, whose dynamic processor designs have revolutionized the industry, the nvelope is really three products in one: in Full Range Mode it’s a powerful transient shaping tool, in Dual Band Mode it’s a frequency-based dynamics tool and in EQ Mode, it’s a pristine high and low shelf equalizer.

Brainworx, using advanced circuit modeling technology, captures all the power and flexibility of the original hardware within the plugin version.

The elysia nvelope takes dynamic transient shaping to the next level with innovative features like the ability to apply transient control by frequency when using Dual Band mode. In the simplified Full Range mode, a sidechain filter is added for the Attack parameter so you can adjust the influence of low frequencies when shaping impulses. Shelf EQ mode allows for a wide spectrum of high or low band coloration. Adding a second instantiation of an nvelope in Shelf EQ mode can be used to sweeten sounds already treated with one of the impulse shaping modes. The nvelope 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.

The nvelope can change the character of a sound by altering its impulse structure, giving you direct control over the envelope of a signal by shaping its attack and sustain intensity.

For example, drum tracks can be made to sound more aggressive and punchy by accenting the attack, or tones that are already overly aggressive can be easily tamed.

The nvelope can also be used to adjust the sustain of a sound, offering control over room sound and space. An instrument or a reverb tail can sound tighter by reducing its sustain, or can gain more depth/make a signal sound longer by increasing it.

    It works great. Worth a buy, but for real drums in not perfect conditions you can't get brutal. So subtle sound changing is the way to go. I would suspect that with samples, where there is no bleed… Read More
