User Review

Very well programmed and modelled - Reviews Elysia Alpha Compressor Plugin

Value For Money : Correct Audience: Advanced Users
Nothing to report.
Or, yeah, by the way... the user's manual is very well done, it covers and analyses the settings of each factory preset, so as to better understand how it all works. Very useful to learn how to tame this beast, which may look unnecessarily complicated and intimidating to new users (espacially those not used to M/S compressors).

EFFICIENCY & PERFORMANCE

The plugin works perfectly in both VST2 and VST3. Regarding its value-for-CPU use, it is one of the best plugins on the market right now. Very well programmed and modelled.

OVERALL

I personally use it on a regular basis on the master buss for compression, sometimes in M/S mode, sometimes on busses, less often on single instrument tracks - and when I do it's most often for spatial enhancement, playing with the EQ and M/S phase.

If I want something with more sonic character, more vintage-sounding but with almost the same settings, then I go for the Artacoustic Clms-1-X1.

Pros: the comp, M/S treatment, transparency and subtle character emulation of the original hardware.
Cons: none that I can think of.
