Empirical Labs EL7 Fatso Two Channel Audio Processor. Saturate and boost your noise with analog warmth! If you deal with HD recorders, DAT’s, CDR’s, or any other digital medium, the Empirical Labs FATSO Jr. is precisely what you have actually been awaiting to fatten up your digital. This 2 channel Full Analog Tape Simulator/Optimizer (FATSO) with Knee Compressor simulates timeless recording aspects like older tube gear, magnetic tape, and more, providing your sound a warmth, depth and immediacy that’s difficult to get with pure digital. Both of FATSO Jr.’s channels provide four sorts of processing. You get Harmonic Generation and Soft Clipper (Distortion generation), High Frequency Saturation, Transformer & Tape Head Emulation, and Classic Knee Compression. Best of all, the FATSO is a fully modern-day, digitally-controlled processor, so you get that analog tape sound without having to mess around with a real analog recorder. FATSO Jr.’s operation is subtle; you won’t hear this device at work. All you’ll hear is great noise.
