UBK EL7 Fatso by Wave Distribution - Stereo Character Compressor

  • Stereo Tape Saturation and Compression Unit
  • Custom Modification by UBK (Gregory Scott) - adding new features
  • 7 Compression modes
  • Programmable high frequency saturation
  • Switchable transformer circuits

A completely retooled compressor section is what sets the UBK Fatso apart from a stock ELI Fatso. Designed to give the operator the most unflinchingly musical compression regardless of the sound being processed or the amount of compression being applied, it will never pump or fold. The UBK Fatso makes easy work of the most difficult and mysterious process in sound engineering: compression.

Vintage limiting, smooth opto leveling, transparent reduction, aggressive modern squeeze... whatever your vision, the UBK Fatso not only makes it possible, it makes it easy. 7 unique compressors - 4 "name" presets plus 3 "hidden gems", produce a remarkable range of flavor, attitude, and grab, all rolled into a one-knob interface that makes it impossible to screw up.

The EL7 FATSO is a modern digitally controlled analog device that offers many of the "musical non-linearities" exhibited by the older tube, class A discrete, and magnetic tape mediums. This two channel audio processor will musically integrate frequencies and transients and increase the apparent volume without actual increase in peak levels. In addition, two channels of famous Empirical Labs compression are provided. There are several compressor "types" with fixed attacks and releases (if you want a fully controllable compressor, you will need the Empirical Labs Distressor!).
