Elysia to introduce museq at AES booth 1526

Elysia will show for the first time in the US their new museq equalizer.

Hot on the heels of their successful mpressor compressor, this fully discrete, 100% class-A EQ is bound to turn some heads as well as ears!

Stop by the Wave Distro booth # 1526 for a demonstration.

Good avatar!

The elysia stuff would be a nice trophy for when you make your first million seller.

I had the pleasure of eqing their demo song with the new eq and I was very impressed. It's REALLY nice sounding. In the 8200/ NSEQ area but I would say nicer than both. Plus a useful button that switches it from (I think) from 1 db steps to half db.

Well, yeah ... it was late in the day and it was pretty quiet on the floor. They had a well positioned pair of Focal monitors and some nice headphones. Also, their spot was way off to one side away from the craziness. I hear what you're saying though, 8 out of 10 times it was useless to "audition" anything on that busy floor.

Any more news on the museq? Is it aimed at mastering, like the Alpha comp, or tracking/mixbus like the mpressor?

Thanks
Anton

Hi Anton,

We feel that the museq will be the perfect fit for the alpha compressor. Here are a few reasons why:

- the discrete design of the gain stages of the alpha compressor has been used in the museq, too
- the complete circuitry in the museq is also a fully discrete class-A design
- with just a few exceptions (when other parts were needed), the museq uses exactly the same components as the alpha does
- this is especially true of the very expensive conductive plastic potentiometers. On the museq like on the alpha, all potentiometers are stepped, which is of course perfect for mastering
- with its boost and cut mode switches, the alphas gain pots offer twice the number of settings than you'd have on a pot with cut and boost combined
- an additional "Fine" switch divides the range of the gain pots by two and makes even more precise settings possible
- last but not least comes the sound quality: it is as pristine as you'd expect it from the alpha.

I am not saying that the museq is a mastering-only product, though. On the contrary, during our many tests we found that especially some more extreme settings you'd make in recording/mixing depend on a very good signal path, as here the differences become even more audible. Just recently we had the cool opportunity to listen to the museq plus eight (!) other high end analog EQs in a very nice listening situation for comparison, and the results were very convincing. So yes, you'll also love it for tracking etc. by all means!

If you really need to have a five band fully parametric, the museq might not be the right tool. But if you are looking for a musical sounding EQ that really gives you a grip on your signal and very fast results at the same time, there you are.

We presented the museq as a prototype at the AES. At the moment, we are sending it to some studios to have additional opinions and maybe some final fine-tuning. It is going to be released at the Musikmesse in March 09 and will be shipping at this point straight away.

Thanks & all the best,
Dominik

Any idea on what the price will be? Even a rough idea? I am building a new signal chain and I think this may fit the bill perfectly.

The price, while not finalized, should be in the range of the mpressor, around $5k.

as soon as Joel Hamilton and mine's new studio (strange weather) covers starting costs expect us to take one, and another mpressor for that matter.

little share..

..another encouraging words from master ( hopefully Dominik you are fine with this) but i think some people will be interested to hear :

"I would say that compared to the 8200 (which I would characterize as clean and especially neutral), the museq has more "character" and all in all sounds more musical - therefore the name. Of course it has a pristine audio path at it uses lots of technological finesses that we had originally developed for the alpha compressor.

I also feel that with our EQ you get very nice results very fast. Instead of a 5 band fully parametric, we created an EQ with 3 semiparametric band (plus switchable Q) plus one bass and treble shelf each (these bands can alternatively switched to high/low pass with an additional resonance peak - very interesting!)

The museq is going to be released for Musikmesse in April, and the price will be slightly higher than the mpressor because of the higher number of expensive components used (not very much, though) "

comparison to 8200 sounds awaesome to me

A big thumbs up for your enthusiasm! Please keep in mind that this was our personal hearing experience during a comparison of our prototype and nearly a dozen other high end EQs. And before anybody has the chance to go mad: the 8200 is a great EQ - please do not interpret our statement wrong.

I love the 8200. I used to own one and now miss it. A fantastic piece of equipment.

I am curious about this EQ. Joel & Tony & Marc rave about the Mpressor.
