Empirical Labs DS Duo
Features 2 ELDS-H DerrEsser's installed into a EL500 1U horizontal rack, effectively creating a stereo DeEsser/dynamics processor.
The Empirical Labs EL500 features ultra quiet power supply, instrument line input, flush-mount front panel.
The Empirical Labs DerrEsser is a multi-function dynamic filtering device, in an API 500 series module format. In its basic “DS” mode, the DerrEsser is an effective, level insensitive de-esser, which is a device that will adjust the high frequency gain on overly trebly or spiky vocal, or other source. By using a crossover technique, and dividing the audio up into a high frequency range and a low frequency range, the DerrEsser can use its Voltage Controlled Amp to turn down comparatively high or harsh high frequencies in an extremely musical manner. However, unlike other de-essers, the device is not limited to just de-essing, and allows for multi use of its circuitry.
