The skulpter 500, just like all our products, is designed, engineered and handcrafted in Germany.
elysia skulpter 500 is the ultimate recording front end. Its audiophile preamp is based on single resistors controlling a fully discrete Class-A amplifier capable of complementing any microphone with a remarkably true and natural sound.
If additional mojo is needed, two variable saturation/filter stages and an intelligent onboard compressor make voices and instruments sound like a finished record right from the start.
Way more than just a preamp, the elysia skulpter 500 is a complete recording solution – everything you’ll ever need in front of your DAW.

elysia skulpter 500 is all about details.
Every single of its many aspects like sound, features, circuitry, components, design, materials and manufacturing has been thought over and over until there was just nothing left to improve. Basically, every single part of our fine products is custom, and most of these are made according to our own designs and specs.
Only the best components the market has to offer are good enough for the elysia skulpter 500, and it shows. Each of our product is manually built to order and tested by ourselves, here at our headquarters in Germany.
Our product benefits sum up in an audio quality that is beyond all doubt. Even when extreme settings are used, the sound always stays clean and powerful.
“The elysia skulpter starts with a Class-A transformerless mic preamp with a repeatable, stepped-gain attenuator control using a continuous rotary encoder – not a conventional potentiometer … As I turned the Gain control, ‘under the hood’ I could hear various relays toggling in/out cascades of precision resistors.
elysia has a winner with this unique sound-shaping microphone/DI channel. I found it a worthy contender to lead in a new class of modern audio processors. Highly recommended!”
“Adding some Shape is akin to the warmth and character of a classic valve preamp. This is an extremely well designed and engineered device that covers many bases, effortlessly flowing from clean and detailed to rich and warm or bright … Very, very good!”
“You get a very good mic preamp, an excellent DI, a universal compressor that shines especially on electric string instruments and voices, plus a sound shaper going from subtle to extreme. There is not a single bad thing about it, besides the fact that you will want more than a single one.”
