The skulpter from elysia is a brand new 500 Series mic pre that offers a wide range of sound options from extremely natural to full-blown color. Whether you're looking for something that stays true to the organic sound of your source or would like to add some warmth to your recordings, this will give you the tools to get the job done.
Something that sets the elysia skulpter apart from other mic pres on the market is that it has several unique on-board features. If you're looking for additional sounds for your arsenal, this skulpter features two variable saturation/filter stages and a compressor that can offer a finished sound to your recordings before you ever even make it to the mixing phase.
The first saturation/filter stage of the elysia skulpter is meant for instruments and offers the ability to add harmonics or THD to what you are tracking. As you increase the amount of THD, a high cut filter at 4 kHZ engages and you will be left with a thick full sound. The second shape of the skulpter should be used for vocals, as it applies the same style of saturation, but has more soft clip tube-like characteristics rather than straight THD.
