The compressor plugin from Empirical Labs
It’s been 20 years since Empirical Labs released its first compressor, The Distressor. From those early days on, Empirical Labs has been bombarded with requests for a great compressor plugin for those working in the box. And it had to be one with the creamy sound and ease-of-use of Empirical Labs’ own award-winning hardware compressors. We are sure you will find the 20-year wait worth it! For many years, processing speed, sample rates, and copy protection were limiting. Things have changed. Digital Technology can now come very close to having all the wonderful non-linearity and “warts” of the best analog gear. We say “close” because most of Empirical Labs’ analog gear will pass 150 kHz easily, and that is something that is impossible with current digital technology. But hey, who hears above 20 kHz?
