Elysia karacter 500

500 Series Mastering Saturator and Distorsion Unit

Paint Your Tones

The karacter 500 is a box full of vibrant colors. It covers a complete spectrum including mastering-grade saturation, tube-inspired distortion and glorious destruction. Gone are the days when only racks full of outboard gear could achieve these elusive and highly desirable styles of tonal coloration…

Four Channel Configurations

This enormously creative tone-shaping solution offers two separate channels which can be set up for dual mono, linked stereo or linked and unlinked M/S operation. Three different coloration styles can be chosen from, and integrated mix stages for parallel signal processing as well as the unique Color Control add further versatility.

VPR Alliance

Like all elysia 500 series modules, the karacter 500 has been thoroughly tested and announced to be fully VPR compliant by our friends from API.

The VPR Alliance is a program of standardization and consistency guidelines for approved manufacturers wishing to design products for API’s 500-series rack format.

The program provides complete design specifications for manufacturers interested in producing third-party modules that physically fit and electronically conform to API’s rack specifications.


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.
