elysia launches and ships the karacter 500

NETTETAL, GERMANY: High-end studio processor manufacturer elysia is excited to announce the release of their newest product: the karacter 500. This discrete class-A device covers a complete spectrum of sonic possibilities, including mastering-grade saturation, tube-inspired distortion and glorious destruction. Want more? Add THD generation with a soft touch, wide ranges of asymmetrical low noise clipping, massive sonic mayhem – an incredible range of options are available.

The karacter 500 offers two individual channels that can be used in dual mono, linked stereo and even Mid/Side configuration, making it a remarkably flexible tool for any imaginable studio or live scenario. The karacter’s unique Color filter network allows subtle or extreme harmonics-frequency relation tweaks, while the integrated mix control for parallel signal processing helps to dial in just the right amount of enhancement or grit. Stepped potentiometers ensure a fast and precise recall of earlier settings.

“Gone are the days when only racks full of outboard gear could achieve these elusive and highly desirable styles of tonal coloration...”, says elysia's head of development, Ruben Tilgner. “The karacter 500 is the perfect all-in-one solution: It offers a wide palette of different colors, and all of them sound beautiful, no matter how gentle or hard you drive it”.

The karacter 500 is made in Germany, exclusively using top quality components, gold plated PCBs, a rugged 4mm aluminum front panel and solid aluminum knobs. It is available from any elysia dealer at $975 MAP ($1049 MSRP), and will be on dealer’s shelves mid-November.

elysia is a union of creative audio enthusiasts that was founded in Nettetal (Germany) in 2006 by Ruben Tilgner and Dominik Klassen. The company has a clearly defined objective: Creating outstanding pro audio gear without compromise, both in the analog and digital realms. elysia stands for highest sound quality, truly sophisticated manufacturing, innovative features without Voodoo, and most of all – creative tools enjoyable for a lifetime.
