Empirical Labs DocDerr Module
Empirical Labs is pleased to announce the DocDerr, a new API 500 series multi-purpose channel strip.
This tone enhancement module houses six different sections of digitally controlled analog processing. A preamp capable of line or 16 dB of “instrument” gain is followed by four sections of EQ offering one selectable high pass and three parametric bands.
The dynamics section provides Empirical Labs compression as well as a tape emulation circuit designed to soften high frequencies
and clips. A “Mix” knob allows the user to blend the uncompressed EQ’s signal with the compressed and saturated signal. Inputs and outputs are DC coupled, and the output can be switched between single ended or differential, yielding + 6dB of gain. A “Bad!” hard clip indicator monitors most every section for internal clipping, the company says.
Pricing & Availability:
The DocDerr model EL-Rx will be available with either horizontal or vertically oriented front panel configurations, and should start shipping July 2011, at a price of $799.
