Corrupts Delay Compensation in PT

Consistently corrupts the delay compensation in my PT sessions. Pretty disappointed in UAD's lack of resolution to this issue after all of the money I've invested into using their hardware and software.

If you know what this is.... You know what you saved!!!!

Man this was one of the first plugs I demoed at a friends studio. It’s completely amazing. The speed and clarity of this plugin is really flattering to any track.

One of the best UA-Plug ins ever!

Elysia delivers astonishing sound quality and makes EVERY master better. Especially the Mono/Side mode makes sound your mixes 3D, they get depth and warmth, they start to live - this is definitively a higher level of listening for every track that ELYSIA is built with. Unbelievable, splendid - ELYSIA is in the top 3 of UA Plug ins for me. A hot shot and worth much more than it costs!

Must have...

For mix and master a must. I use it in my mastering chain before Soothe2 and it can save even a bad mix. But it also works well on any other track.

What a thing!

I was looking for a new all-round compressor for vocals -hoping to find something as natural and versatile as the LA3A, which i has been my go-to vocal comp for many years. After much research on the UA forums, i decided on the Elysia Alpha, which i had never used before.
WOW did i get more than i hoped for! This thing is amazingly versatile and sounds unbelievably good. From light compression to flat limiting, it somehow always sounds natural and dynamic. Great controls and easy to use. I am very impressed.
LA3A for sale anyone?

THE HOLY GRAIL OF COMPRESSORS

If you don't have and Elysia, you're missing the ultimate compression tool in your arsenal. Unlike any other compressor plug-in, it is more flexible, more musical, more everything than perhaps any other UAD plug-in. If you only bought one plug-in, it should be this one! If I could rate it 10 starts out of 5, that wouldn't be enough stars!

the missing piece

I GOT THIS PLUG AFTER ALWAYS SEEING THE HARDWARE IN MASTERING STUDIOS.
THIS IS THE BEST GAIN STAGING PLUG IVE EVER USED AND IS THE MAIN REASON I CAN NOW CREATE DEMOS TO THE STANDARD NECCESARY..

Ah, what a beautiful workhorse!

Can a workhorse be beautiful? Yes, and this is the case of elysia• alpha! When in need of transparent, precise compression for literally anything (drums, bass, backing vocals, synths, guitars) - go for alpha. It lets you keep your mixes really, really clean where needed. Doesn't provide you with "tons of colour", but it's not mean this way. Pair it with Distressor, 1176 or anything else of your choice for chosen tracks/groups and you're more than fine.

Highly, highly recommended, tested for a short time so far, but heavily with synths, guitars, vocals (singing and a TV voice-over), bass and drums (gave very good results with electronic pop/IDM genres).

Saying goodbye to Waves C1 right now :) <3

interesting some times

Subtle, for my opinion not that easy to adjust perfectly.
Can distort, pay attention.

Unbelievable Master Compressor

You can easily get SSL-style punch or extremely transparent compression. The soft clip function sounds like crap on masters, but that's to be expected with most basic clippers. Perfectly useable function for individual tracks. The 'warm' button also sounds great, I really like the linked M/S over unlinked for mastering as well. This isn't just for mastering, but an extremely detailed mixing or tracking comp.
