The germany-based company elysia was founded in 2005. It's a joint venture of creative audio enthusiasts who have a clearly defined objective: the development and production of high-quality and innovative audio solutions featuring that certain something.

alpha compressor

The alpha compressor plug-in is the software reincarnation of elysia's famous mastering compressor. It gives you a painstaking emulation of the sound and features the hardware is known and popular for. In fact, the compression section alone is such a useful tool that we have decided to also include a dedicated mixing version with a reduced interface.

  • Integrated M/S matrix, Auto Fast for attack and release
  • Feed forward and feedback modes, integrated sidechain filter
  • Parallel compression feature, Soft Clip limiters
  • Niveau Filter and switchable Warm mode
  • VST 2.4 / VST 3 support


The mpressor is the as close-as-it-can-get emulation of elysia's famous creative compressor. Its all discrete circuitry and its special character have been translated into software in all the painstaking details. The result is an outstanding universal compressor as well as a dynamics effect machine which will significantly enhance the potentials of your host.

  • Auto Fast for attack, Anti Log for release
  • Negative ratios for snazzy sound effects
  • Gain Reduction Limiter for ultimate control
  • Niveau Filter for changing the sonic structure
  • Sidechain, VST 2.4 / VST 3 support
