Warm mode – elysia xpressor 500 User Manual
This function is basically a slew rate limiter that re-
duces the speed of the output amplifier stages. This
affects the frequency spectrum, the harmonics and
the transient response at the same time.
Fast transients are slowed down a bit and the overall sound
appears more round and merged. As this function influences
the behavior of the output stages, the effect it creates has an
impact on the complete processing results of the compressor.
This way the xpressor 500 offers two different sound char-
acters at the push of a button: the powerful transparency of
the discrete class-A circuitry and the saturated richness of the
Now the choice is really up to you: For transparent compres-
sion and an even frequency response, just use the xpressor
500 in standard mode. For a little bit more fat and juicy sound,
hit the Warm Mode button and you are there!
