Elysia Karacter 500

The Elysia Karacter 500 is a saturation module used to add colour to your mixes. This is Elysia's all-in-one solution, offering two separate channels which can be set up for dual mono, linked stereo or link and unlinked mono/stereo. Integrated mix stages for parallel signal processing and the unique Color Control add to its remarkable flexibility.

The entire unit is designed with discrete class-A topology, so even the most lo-fi sounds will benefit from the Karacter's high-end touch. Enhance your tracks or decimate everything – It's a matter of Karacter.
