Empirical Labs® EL8 Distressor
Empirical Labs EL8 Distressor Compressor
Everybody wanted a distressor plug-in and we got one. Thank you UA for giving us this plug-in. I purchased the 99 plug-in deal when I bought my Apollo and this is one of my go to plugins in just about every session.
Squash machine and a lot of more... Definitely like it!
Perfect for use on vocals!!!
Pretty great, I have 2 of the hardware and haven’t A/B’d them yet but sounds very good
It is as close as it can be...
I've own a couple Distressors units for over 12 years or more, I've used them on a ton of recordings and mixes, since I went ITB for mixing I haven't found anything like it in the digital world till I bought the EL8 plugin from UAudio and I can tell you, I just feel like I'm using my hardware units with a digital interface, amazing, well well done UA I
Can’t go wrong with this one! So nice on synth leads and plucks.
Power of software
Amazing for electric guitars, my solo sounds powerfull
I’ve been the proud owner of this plugin for a while and it’s amazing. It feels like the hardware (at least to me) and simply a wonderful tool. Thank you UAD!
This emulation is amazing! I use it on vocals, guitar, bass, drums.. pretty everything!
Really liking this emulation so far. Been checking it out on drums, bass, and electric guitars. Really versatile, as expected.
Perfect Vocal Compression
This is absolutely perfect for getting vocals to stand up front in the vocals without sounding too squashed. On sale, the price is just unbelievable for the quality!
Very usefull ! drums, bass etc..
My drums sound so dope now
Been looking forward to this!
I have actually just been starting with UAD plugins, but this is exactly the joy and sonic quality I was looking for! Purchased the API 2500 as well which I love already and couldn't let the Distressor slide. Good choice!
UA's modeling of this classic piece of gear comes very close to the hardware and in my opinion is a must have for anyone serious about recording, mixing or mastering audio.
Multi purpose tool
Very efficiant and useful in a lot of situations
Suona come L originale....grandi!!!
You never know
I don't know why I held back so long before grabbing the EL8. Surprisingly good, surprisingly versatile.
Classic kit, perfect modeling
Sounds sensational, easy to use, well priced.
