概要
elysia• alpha compressorプラグインコレクション
エリートの中のエリート、「超」付くほど透明なソニックスカルピングツールの登場です。

ミックス/マスタリングに最適。パワフルなウルトラハイエンドツール。革新的な機能と妥協のない100%ディスクリート仕様。クラスA回路をフィーチャーしたウルトラ・トランスペアレントなelysia• alpha compressor は、2006年リリースされました。

$10,000以上という価格にもかかわらず、この新しいコンプレッサーは、オープンで明瞭なサウンドによって、数あるダイナミクスプロセッサーの中でも唯一無二の存在となりました。elysia• alpha compressor が遂に、Brainworx 開発チームの尽力により、UAD2/Apollo インターフェイス専用プラグインコレクションに加わりました。世界でもトップクラスの忠実なエミュレーション技術は今も健在です。


特徴:
  • 世界最高峰コンプレッサーの精確無比なエミュレーション。録音素材のミックス/マスタリングは、これで完璧!
  • 既に完成したミックスのバランスを再確認。個々の帯域フォーカスで M/S ダイナミクス処理を!
  • Feed Forward、あるいは Auto Fast コントロールを駆使して、ドラムバスに唯一無二のソニックアクセントを加えよう。
  • Warm、あるいは Soft Clip 機能を使って、アナログの味付けを施し、エレガントなミックス/マスタリングを目指そう!

トータルコントロール
alpha compressor プラグインの精細なレスポンスは、最新のコントロール機能により、さらに威力を増します。Feed Forward ボタンは、必要な部分を押し出して、ドラムバスにパンチを加え、キャラクターに彩りを加えます。Auto Fast 機能はトランジェントを素早く捉え、繊細かつパワフルな"インビジブルコンプレッション"を実現 - 取り回しの困難な音声信号も難なく処理します。 最後に、どんな楽器・素材でもレーザーのような切れ味で簡単に調理してしまう、alpha compressor の Niveau Filter も心強い味方です。
パワフルな追加機能
M/S (Mid/Side)プロセッシングのような最新機能や Mix コントロールによる wet/dry 信号のブレンド機能により、alpha compressor は驚くほどの音響特性を生み出します。Mix/Dry コントロールは、職人技ともいえるほどのスムースさを実現、ナチュラルでオーガニックなコンプレッションを生成して、トータルミックスのダイナミクスを極端に変化させることなく、ひと味もふた味も違った色合いに染め上げます。

M/Sプロセッシングは、サイド信号(両サイド)のステレオスペクトラムを変化させずに、ミドル信号(ドラムバスやベース、ボーカルなど)を直接エディットできます。個々のM/Sトラックをそれぞれソロで確認することも可能です。
シンプルな“Mix”バージョンによるクイック・ワークフロー
Brainworx社、およびelysia社のコラボレーションにより、シンプルな構造の"Mix"バージョンが出来上がりました。これは、ワークフローをよりスムースに運ぶため特別に開発されたものです。Nivaeu Filter、および Soft Clip Limiterを省略したバージョンで、最適なコンプレッションに素早くアクセス!
ウォームアップ!
最終的な味付けとして、Warm 機能、および Soft Clip 機能を搭載。素材をさらに細かく磨き上げます。Warm モードは、elysiaの有名なmuseq EQのエミュレーションで、繊細なサチュレーションを加える機能です。Soft Clip 機能は文字通り、瞬発的なトランジェントを抑え、信号のピークを滑らかにすることで A/D コンバーターをクリッピングから保護します。

FAQ
elysia• alpha compressor Plug-In Collection.
Basics and FAQ.
What makes the elysia• alpha compressor different from other compressors?

Spectacular, almost maniacal build quality and attention to detail — elysia• was born out of the desire to create audio products without compromise. The founders have spent a good part of their lifetime developing quality audio products but had always longed to build one product, with zero compromise to quality. The alpha compressor founded the reputation of the company, and it has remained its flagship product ever since. The result is a compressor which not only provides an unprecedented level of control, but the most transparent sound in the industry even when extreme settings are used.

What are some of the unique characteristics of the elysia• alpha compressor that have been emulated?

The elysia• alpha compressor gives you a set of advanced features that can be combined freely to address common mastering needs. The elysia• alpha compressor plug-in devotedly emulates all of these features, including the integrated M/S matrix, Niveau filters, Auto attack/release, soft clip limiter, parallel compression, and more.

What benefit does the elysia• alpha compressor plug-in provide compared to using the original hardware compressor?

The alpha compressor plug-in collection includes both a "Master" and "Mix" version. The "Master" version is best suited for multi-channel mastering, while the "Mix" plug-in is available for stereo or mono processing and has a reduced feature set, ideal for getting a great compression sound quickly. The "Mix" version is very useful for applying compression as needed in a mix, or as a tracking compressor while recording.

Why is there a "Warm" button on the plug-in version where the "Transformer" button is on the original hardware?

The hardware version of the alpha compressor has an additional transformer which can be switched in or out of the circuit by the user. The effect on the audio however, is extremely subtle, in fact many alpha compressor owners have said they have a hard time detecting the sonic differences at all. As the purpose of this function was to give the user the ability to add some color and saturation, Brainworx, working closely with elysia•, decided to emulate the "Warm" mode found on elysia•’s museq EQ which many users have found both pleasing and useful.

What are some of the best or common ways to use the elysia• alpha compressor to get great sounds?

While the elysia• alpha compressor is best known as a mastering tool, it is also very useful on other sources and groups (drums, vocal and guitar buses, and more). The alpha compressor was designed so that even when extreme settings are used, the sound characteristics stay clean and powerful. Whether used for mastering, mixing, or both, the alpha compressor achieves excellent processing results for all different styles of music.

The alpha compressor has a lot of controls and it seems a bit daunting. Can you give me some tips on how to become familiar with it?

You might want to start with the simpler "Mix" version of the alpha compressor first. You will create good results in no time at all, and familiarize yourself with the basic design of the compressor section.

Once you proceed with the full-featured "Master" version, make sure to not use all of its functions straight away, but one after the other. Once you know what each of the controls do, you can flexibly combine this "semi-modular" set of features according to your needs.

Familiarize yourself with the signal matrix represented by the "Direct" and "Compressed" buttons. There are four combinations of these in total, and each combination provides a different function (soloing channels, muting channels, comparing direct and processed signals, and so on).

If you are not familiar with M/S (Mid/Side) processing, take some time to learn more about it and try it on some of your material. Once you know how and when to utilize M/S, you will be able to address other mastering needs that are significantly more difficult or impossible to address with conventional stereo processing.

It's important to use the Soft Clip Limiter with care. If the corresponding LED lights up very slightly from time to time, it is just perfect. Only then will you benefit from a few dB of additional headroom without actually hearing distortion.

機能とスペック
elysia• alpha compressor.
Features & Specs.
Key Features
  • 100% Discrete Class-A Sound: The alpha compressor represents the art of discrete signal processing. Consequently, ICs have to stay out without any ifs and buts. Authenticated by elysia• GmbH, the painstaking component modeling of the plug-in faithfully captures the sound of the original hardware.
  • Integrated M/S Matrix: As an alternative to standard stereo operation you can process the mid and side signals, opening up completely new options for your work.
  • Feed Forward & Feedback: The type of compression can be chosen for each channel individually, making two different compressors available at the push of a button.
  • Auto Fast: A switchable semi automation that always provides perfect attack and release on the basis of the values set by the user - even with complex material.
  • Niveau Audio Filter: The Niveau Filter is specialized in forming the tonal characteristics of a track very effectively without much of an effort.
  • Parallel Compression: Also available directly on the unit: the direct and the compressed signal can be blended in any desired relation by simply turning the mix controller.
  • Signal Matrix: The direct and the processed signal can be monitored individually or together by the push of a button in each channel (left & right or mid & side).
  • Soft Clip Limiter: Tames short and loud transients and smoothens the signal peaks, and thereby protects following AD converters from clipping.
  • Requires UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Interface, available from authorized dealers worldwide
