Empirical Labs EL8 Distressor

Empirical Labs Distressor is a unique analog compressor that allows the user to add 2nd or 3rd order harmonic distortion to the signal, emulating tape saturation and the classic tube compressor sound of the ’60’s and ’70’s. The Distressor also offers advanced sidechain EQ, eight unique curves and Empirical Labs’ exclusive “Binary Stepped Interface” providing hundreds of options with just a few control settings.
