The nvelope 500 is a powerful audio processor capable of making subtle or drastic changes to a sound by providing control over its attack and sustain characteristics. This is extremely useful for reshaping all sorts of individual tones, and is a wonderful tool in any mixing situation as well. Especially drums and other percussive signals will benefit big time from the nvelope's magic.
"If you need a couple of channels of simple yet high-quality analogue EQ and/or transient processing, then, this seems like a bit of a no-brainer purchase. The price isn’t exactly steep considering what’s on offer here – two channels of two different processors. Some manufacturers would charge you the same for a single channel of EQ!"
"The nvelope 500 has everything that could be expected from such a tool, coming at an advanced level of quality... The superior build quality of this product deserves to be praised one more time... All I can say: Get one, especially at this price!"
The nvelope 500 operates independently of the specific level of a signal, and (unlike with compressors) you do not have to spend a lot of time trying to balance a set of complex controls to quickly get the results you seek. With its unique Dual Band mode, the nvelope 500 gives you enhanced control over processing, and can easily handle complex program material. Additionally, its dynamics sections can be bypassed, allowing it to function as a flexible high/low shelf EQ.
"I’m a transient shaping skeptic. I’ve used various products in the past but never found them very usable or musical. The nvelope 500 changed my mind: It is one of those processors that you’ll miss once you discover its magic. This unit is a must hear and is highly recommended."
"Although it does not have too many controllers, the nvelope 500 is an incredibly flexible transient shaper which can be used both for single tracks or the master bus with great benefit. The EQ is of the highest grade and so much more than just a nice addition."
