The Elysia Karacter 500 brings all the power of their renowned Karacter rack mount module to the 500 series format! Think of the Elysia Karacter as a vibrant box of powerful mastering tools that can be used in conventional and experimental ways. The device’s audio path is entirely class-A, delivering uncompromisingly powerful results with a slew of creative potential that pushes the box’s capabilities well beyond the boundaries of conventional mixing/mastering and into more experimental territory. Using Mastering-Grade Saturation, the Karacter achieves exemplary signal coloration while maintaining a distinctly high-end quality. Under this parameter, the Karacter produces Total Harmonic Distortion with a soft characteristic slope for symmetrical clipping. There’s also an FET Shred mode that allows the unit to sound more like a tube amplifier, and a Color control that alters the harmonics-frequency relation. This latter feature can be used when in stereo mode to great effect, as it enables the processing of mid and side bands.
