Manufacturer's Description from Elysia

The nvelope 500 is a dynamics processor that can change the character of a sound by altering its impulse structure. It gives you direct control over the envelope of a signal by shaping its attack and sustain intensity.


More specifically, a drum set (or individual drums) can be made to sound more aggressive and punchy by accenting the attack, or tones that are already overly aggressive can easily be tamed.
Other useful applications would be on picked or slapped bass, edgy guitar or any kind of piano recording. Generally speaking, the nvelope 500 works optimally on audio signals with a significant/percussive attack structure.


As a balance to the attack shaping, the sustain parameters offer 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.


The nvelope 500 is a great tool for shaping individual signals, but it can be an indispensable resource in mixing situations as well, as it effortlessly helps you to bring a sound to the front with more attack and less sustain… or blends it gently into the background by reducing its attack and increasing its sustain.


A unique feature of the nvelope 500 is the enhanced tweakability offered in Dual Band mode. Individual frequency controls for attack and sustain yield excellent processing results without unwanted artifacts, even when utilized on complex material like a summing bus.
We’re sure you’ll be happy to know the nvelope 500 offers true dual mono or linked stereo operation whether you are using it in Full Range, Dual Band or EQ mode.


When the nvelope 500 is not in Stereo Link mode, the two individual channels can be used as different processors simultaneously. For example, you can shape one signal in Dual Band mode in channel L and a completely different signal in Full Range mode in channel R.


Or, you can connect the output of channel L to the input of channel R, and then process the frequency response with the EQ first, followed by some nice Dual Band impulse shaping... As you can imagine, there are lots of possible combinations!

About Manufacturer

The beginning was an obsession. Would it actually be possible to build special gear with these features and sound characteristics? Well, since then Elysia has become a union of creative audio enthusiasts who have a clearly defined objective: the development and production of high-quality studio equipment featuring that certain something. We do not want to settle for the status quo and rehash existing concepts time and again. Our objective is rather to adapt our products to current demands in everyday studio life. The initiators of the company founded in Nettetal (Germany) in 2005 are Ruben Tilgner and Dominik Klaen. Affected by countless live and studio experiences as well as by over ten years of pro audio experience they finally created elysia in order to make their personal sound philosophy come true. Ruben looks back on many successful development projects: besides others, he has designed the Transient Designer, the GainStation and the MixDream for SPL. Based on his experience on the marketing sector, Dominik Klaen concentrates on communication, documentation and all topics related to product design. The independence of our enterprise enables us to follow extreme paths in our work. We like to try out a lot and are only satisfied when there is nothing left to improve. Besides, we never discard unconventional ideas airily we test all of them and never form our opinion before doing so. Our most important rule is that the ear always comes first, but we also like to please the eye by reflecting the inner values of our devices on the outside with an exclusive design. This is the basis on that our audio equipment is built. We set value on highest sound quality, exclusive use of top grade components, perfect operability and reliability, appealing product design, exemplary documentation and implementation of innovative features without any Voodoo, but with real profit for daily usage.
