ELYSIA Nvelope dynamics processor and EQ

Ruben Tilgner follows up his 1990s SPL Transient Designer processor, adding new frequency controls. John Pickford tests this latest version…

We tend to think of dynamics processing in terms of compressing and limiting; however, Elysia’s Nvelope is designed to shape the attack and sustain characteristics of audio that is fed through it. The concept isn’t entirely new, although the technology is certainly a lot younger than that employed by more traditional dynamics processors. Elysia’s Ruben Tilgner, the inventor of the differential envelope principle, designed the SPL Transient Designer back in the 1990s and has now taken the concept a step further with the Nvelope.

The original Transient Designer was quite basic (although powerful) in its operation, providing two controls per channel: one to alter the attack response, the other to adjust sustain. The Nvelope still offers this quick and easy method of shaping sound by altering its impulse structure, but now also provides frequency controls to shape the precise frequency point at which this shaping occurs.
