Barry Rudolph: "I'm highly recommending the mpressor for its versatility and unique abilities not obtainable with any other processor. It excels especially in the creative side by radically altering the dynamic envelope of sounds yet it can also behave very civilized when you require. The negative ratio and Anti-Log release mode are strictly fun!"

Monitor 03/2010
Gunnar E. Olsson: "I can't get rid of the impression that the transfer of the hardware mpressor's motto – sound quality without compromise – went really well. The software works as fine as a mixing and mastering compressor as it does as a creative sound tool. Working with the mpressor is extremely easy, but it is full of great surprises at the same time."

Add to that great sonic quality and this is a very powerful and musical tool that you’ll find yourself reaching for every day."

Mario Laemmerhirt: "If you ask me, elysia have kept their promise all along the line. I, for one, could not find a fly in the ointment. The mpressor cuts an extremely fine figure when used as a creative sound shaping tool. I experienced its interesting compression effects to be very convincing. My new reference class."

Heiko Wallauer: "This plug-in is certainly not a one-trick-pony, but a very flexible one instead. No matter if you want to compress acoustic instruments the decent way, or raise the pressure on drums, or create spectacular effects – the mpressor does it all. With its many special features it convinces all along the line."

Sonic Scoop 01/2010
Geoff Sanoff: "The mpressor definitely has a color to it, though it’s a color with many gradations of density and tone, far more than most compressors. While it does transparent reasonably well, it does character much better. […] What the Distressor has become to modern recording, the mpressor plug-in may well become to in-the-box mixing."

Klangfabrique: "The mpressor shines because of its sonic qualities, its accurate and solid dynamics processing, its flexibility and its intuitive operation. Its functionality outranges normal compressors by offering new and and almost playful ways to create unimagined soundscapes. The title 'creative compressor' is justified by all means."

Recording.de 12/2009
Andreas Ecker: "The mpressor is absolutely convincing: sound and flexibility are top notch. My earlier favorites now have to face a serious rival, as because of its special features it beats them as an allrounder with a good lot of esprit."

Guitarlounge 12/2009
Ludvig Nylund: "The mpressor is modern and versatile, it’s clean and tight, when you want it to be breathy it breathes, when you tell it to be subtle and transparent it obeys and if you throw it out there to be whacky and angry it does that just as well… all while retaining stellar quality."

The Sonic Joy Awards 2009

by the Audio News Room editors
Audio News Room (Italy) – January 2010

2009 in a few words? A cool year for sound-design tools, as well as for reverbs. Hardware outboard emulations never sounded so good (unfortunately prices in most cases have considerably gone up), and performing tools got better, smaller and more affordable.

Elysia mpressor (Software FX)
One of the most original compressors of our times, faithfully modeled and ready to be used on multiple tracks on your DAW. The mpressor can be an excellent all-round compressor, but to me it really shines on more experimental tasks, thanks to its unique controls.
