  • Dual Sound Shaper
  • Stepless low-cut filter
  • Dynamic-Section
  • DI-Input


The elysia skulpter 500 is the ultimate recording front-end. Its audiophile preamplifier is based on single resistors driving a fully discrete Class A amplifier capable of complementing any microphone with a remarkably true and natural sound. If additional mojo is needed, two variable saturation / filter stages and an intelligent onboard compressor ensure that vocals and instruments sound like a finished recording right from the start.

The elysia skulpter 500 is far more than just a preamp, it’s a complete recording solution – everything you need before the DAW.

  • Processing quality

    The skulpter 500, like all elysia products, is developed, designed and handmade in Germany.

  • Class-A Topologie

    Consistently represents the art of discrete signal processing.

  • Dual Sound Shaper

    Two variable saturation / filter levels provide multiple options to make vocals and instruments sound like those on a finished record.

  • Dynamic Section

    Only one button..... but its powerful hidden functions allow you to control the dynamics in all aspects. Simple and incredibly useful.

  • Variable low cut filter

    A filter design that allows you to select the best frequency to eliminate low frequency rumble. If necessary, you can adjust and forget or simply and quickly adapt.

A complete channel strip

Whether fine or fat – the sound pleasure does not end at the microphone cabinet. The elysia skulpter 500 has a balanced DI input with a lot of headroom, so that guitars, basses, synthesizers and effects can also enjoy a high-quality audio path with absolutely convincing sound refinement.

The elysia skulpter is all about details.

"The elysia skulpter is based on a transformerless Class-A preamp with stepwise amplification controlled by an encoder - not a conventional potentiometer... when you turn the gain control, you can hear the relays clicking 'under the bonnet', driving the precision resistor network.

elysia has a winner with this unique sound shaping preamp/DI channel. For me, the skulpter has a chance at pole position in a new class of modern audio processors. Highly recommended!"

Barry Rudolph
Mix Magazine

"You get a very good mic preamp, an excellent DI, a universal compressor that works great especially on stringed instruments and vocals, and a sound shaper that covers everything from subtle to extreme. The only minus - one is not enough ;-)"
