The Empirical Labs EL7 FATSO’s ingenious design and creative feature set gives users the wonderfully warm and pleasing sound of magnetic recording tape, class A transformers, and tube circuits. Endorsed and scrutinized for accuracy by designer Dave Derr of Empirical Labs, Universal Audio has painstakingly recreated the FATSO Analog Tape Simulator & Compressor in this highly anticipated UAD Powered Plug-In, capturing the sonic nuances of the original hardware. Specifically, the FATSO is designed to musically integrate frequencies and transients — and increase the apparent volume of your source material — in the same way classic analog equipment does.
Legendary engineers including Ed Cherney, Al Schmitt, and Brendan O'Brien, and artists including Paul McCartney, Trent Reznor, Blackalicious, Jack Johnson, and Avril Lavigne, have helped make the EL7 FATSO Jr. a modern studio standard. As part of the FATSO Powered Plug-In, UA has also worked closely with Dave Derr to model his never-before-available original concept of the FATSO, the FATSO Sr.
