Overview

The Compressor from the Future

The mpressor plugin is the perfect tool for modern dynamics processing. In addition to great-sounding standard compression, this compressor provides several creative functions that produce fat and freaky sounds with punch, beautiful coloration, and extreme processing effects. The mpressor is equally at home compressing tracks or busses in a mix or while tracking.

The original concept behind the hardware mpressor was a more affordable version of elysia’s flagship, the alpha compressor. But producers and engineers who loved their alpha compressors encouraged elysia’s designers to go for something different and creative, something capable of producing compression effects no other compressor could achieve, including the coveted elysia alpha. The result was the mpressor, a uniquely creative dynamics tool. 

Each linkable channel of the mpressor offers a switchable Auto-Fast function that allows for very fast yet distortion-free compression without any artifacts. The Anti-Log circuit generates powerful compression effects such as pumping and breathing. With its true feed forward design, the mpressor allows negative ratios, which can deliver extreme over-compression effects. The included Niveau Filters can easily shift the character of a track from subtle to striking with the option of continuous frequency shifting. The mpressor is a compressor you have to hear to believe. The plugin’s novel Gain Reduction Limiter lets you choose the maximum amount of allowed Gain Reduction with the twist of a virtual knob. 

Using advanced circuit modeling techniques, Brainworx faithfully emulated the all analog, all discrete circuit design of the hardware mpressor, right down to the single transistor signal processing and permanent class-A mode design.

Highlights

  • True Emulation The compression behavior and the sound character of the hardware version have been faithfully recreated to deliver all the mojo of the analog model.
  • Extreme yet Tight A lot of compressors sound good only when used sparingly, and fail to deliver pleasing results at extreme settings. The mpressor’s focused, high-end class-A sound maintains the character of the original audio, even when the most extreme settings are used.
  • Killer on Drums While the mpressor works great on many sources, it is particularly loved by engineers for its ability to deliver punchy drum sounds
  • Gain Reduction Limiter Rather than limiting audio in the signal path like traditional limiters, the mpressor’s unique limiter restricts the virtual control voltage of the plugin itself, not the audio signal. This allows users to place a cap on the total dBs of gain reduction regardless of how far the input signal is over the set threshold.
