Looptrotter Emperor 500 - 500 Series Limiter

  • Fitted with an intuitive, easy to operate control panel
  • Emperor 500 uniquely enhances the perceived loudness, warms up and brightens the audio signal, depending on the DRIVE settings
  • Equipped with two, independently working filters embedded in the control circuit
  • Independent control over DRY and WET signal
  • Acts like an analog de-esser, or very fast compressor for bright and dynamic instruments

EMPEROR 500 is an analog dynamics processor, which depending on the settings can work as a compressor, limiter or harmonics distortion generator. It was designed for creating the original, vivid, analog sound for instruments.

The very core of the EMPEROR 500 is a FET transistor responsible for sound reduction and introduction of a small amount of low order harmonics, and itís design is inspired by the limiters and transistor compressors from the 60-ties. Apart from that EMPEROR 500 includes many original solutions stemmed from a long-term experience of Looptrotter in construction of dynamics processors, which guarantees unique sound.

EMPEROR 500 acts more transparent and natural with the signals rich in low frequencies like kick drum, or bass guitar. This can decrease the distortion of low frequencies and the pumping effect; while boosting the high frequencies in the control signal.
