The Elysia Xpressor 500 Neo is a 500 Series compressor with a completely new and refined circuit design that adds depth, transparency, and three-dimensionality to the sound.
The Elysia Xpressor 500 Neo has the same Class A topology as Elysia's flagship Alpha Compressor and has a similar sonic signature. The reworked circuit design adds depth, stereo width, and a stunning phantom centre.
The Xpressor 500 Neo has also refined small details, such as a less reflective faceplate and laser-engraved labels and values, to ensure excellent visibility of the selected settings.
The buttons have a small dent while the knobs have a different finish for a better experience.
The Xpressor 500 Neo, like the original, includes side-chain filtering and parallel mix control. The Gain Reduction limit also ensures complete control over the gain reduction level. Warm Mode adds subtle harmonic colouration as needed, while Auto Fast and Log Release alter the response of the compressor's time constants for more severe compression.
