Elixir Essential - Bring Your Immersive Mix To Level!
Immersive mixing and content production have the same demands and require the same processes as stereo mixing, with the most obvious difference being the channel count. Elixir Essential is based around the same ultra transparent algorithm as the legacy Elixir v3, meticulously designed to achieve a true natural sounding result preserving the natural timbre of the audio material, used by recording and mastering engineers for almost a decade now.
Supporting up to 16 channels, conforming with the ITU-R and EBUloudness norms, makes Elixir Essential an indispensable tool for immersive audio productions including Dolby Atmos.
True Peak conforming with ITU-R and EBU norms Meeting the broadcast, post-production, and mastering industry norms with real True Peak output in accordance with the ITU-R BS.1770 and EBU R128 norms.
Now supporting up to 16 channels
Provides up to 16 channels of processing, operating at sample rates up to 384kHz.
Revamped optimized user interface
The GUI has been completely modernized, with the workflow overhauled to enhance the user experience, and optimized to visually control the whole audio content.
Full control over the gain structure
Input / Output Gain (-12/+12 dB) applied to the limiter input, and to the output stage of the limiter.
Multistage processing in up to 4 stages
The multistage processing provides the option to set the algorithm to perform the limiting processing in multi-stages, for even more precise and natural sounding results.
True bypass routing the incoming signal direct to the output for a true smooth transition between clean and processed signal.
Now with scalable user interface in 6 steps
The user interface is now scalable in 6 steps to easily adapt to the screen resolution of the DAW workstation; 800x600, 1000x750, 1200x900, 1300x975, 1600x1200, and 2000x1500.
New presets meeting the output true-peak recommendations for Youtube, Spotify, Apple Music and Netflix.
Immersive audio production, including Dolby Atmos
With Immersive Audio being the new driving force in the entertainment industry a new era in audio production is taking shape. Elixir Essential supports up to 16 channels of processing making it the indispensable tool for Immersive Audio production, including Dolby Atmos workflows. You can either control the dynamic of the multiple 7.1.2 beds you are sending to the Dolby renderer, or, limit your monitoring level.
Natural precise and musical processing with stage processing
For truly delicate and fine processing tasks, Elixir Essential presents an innovative concept called Stages, providing the option to set the algorithm to perform the limiting processing in multi-stages in order to achieve even more precise and natural sounding results.
Example: If the threshold is set to -3 dB and the Stages parameter set to 3, the first stage will limit at -1dB, the second stage will limit at -2dB and the third will limit at -3dB, with analyzing performed in each of the three stages.
Quick and easy setup
Elixir’s straightforward user interface makes it exceptionally easy to achieve great results, even under a tight deadline. Simply set the input level, adjust the Threshold according to the amount of limiting desired, and finally enable Make Up for gain compensation and loudness addition - That’s it!
