elysia karacter 500 500-Series Device

The elysia karacter 500 500-Series Coloring Box is a box full of vibrant colors. It covers a complete spectrum including mastering-grade saturation, tube-inspired distortion and glorious destruction.

Gone are the days when only racks full of outboard gear could achieve these elusive and highly desirable styles of tonal coloration... This all-in-one solution offers two separate channels which can be set up for dual mono, linked stereo or linked and unlinked M/S operation. Integrated mix stages for parallel signal processing and the unique Color Control add to its remarkable flexibility.

The entire unit is designed with discrete class-A topology, so even the most lo-fi sounds will benefit from the karacter's high-end touch. Enhance your tracks or decimate everything – It's a matter of karacter.

elysia karacter 500 500-Series Device Features

  • Discrete Class-A Topology
    • The input and output stages as well as the complete audio path are fully discrete designs running in constant class-A mode. The result: Signal coloration, high-end style.
  • Mastering-Grade Saturation
    • In this mode, the karacter 500 generates gentle Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) with a soft characteristic curve, resulting in very musical symmetrical clipping.
  • Tube-Inspired Distortion
    • In FET Shred mode, the behavior of the karacter 500 changes drastically. The sound instantly reminds of tube amplifiers, with a wide range of asymmetrical distortion.
  • Glorious Destruction
    • Now, this is pushing the envelope. The Turbo Boost shifts the operating point of the distortion circuit in FET shred mode and generates even more asymmetrical wave forms.
  • Color Filter
    • The Color control changes the harmonics-frequency relation with tons of interesting variations. Middle is flat; turn left for more dub and right for more shred.
  • Integrated M/S Matrix
    • As an alternative to standard stereo operation you can process the mid and side signals, opening up completely new options for your work!
  • Dual Mono/Stereo Link
    • For ultimate flexibility, the karacter 500 offers both true dual mono and linked stereo operation, while in M/S mode the channels can be linked or unlinked as well.
  • Stepped Controllers
    • All potentiometers of the karacter 500 have 41 steps, which is a great help for recalling your previous sessions fast and precisely.
  • Ground Layer Shield
    • One of the six layers of both PCBs is a full copper plane which helps to reduce interferences caused by electric fields.
