The Elysia kaRACKter is the rack version of the famous Karacter 500 series discrete class-A stereo saturation.



On top of everything the 500 series module has to offer, the amazing special feature of the rack version is its CV capability: By feeding external control voltages into the karacter it is possible to modulate or recall its Drive and Mix parameter settings. Analog synth, MIDI-to-CV interfaces and many other kinds of sources can be used to feed the karacter with oscillators, value sweeps and setup changes.

    Elysia at his best
    So I've been using plugins for a while on my mastering chain for saturation and I had pretty decent results. But since I already own a xfilter and a xpressor I was curious about this unit. Tried it and loved it.
    Great color, amazing saturation and settings. Read more
