      For Gear Heads:


      The first entry by ELI into the 500 series format, the Empirical Labs ELDS DerrEsser is a multi function dynamic filtering device. Available in vertical or horizontal versions.  A perfect fit for our EL500 powered rack. In its basic “DS” mode, it is an effective, level insensitive “de-esser” – a device that will adjust the high frequency gain on overly trebly or spiky vocals or other sources in an extremely musical manner.  However, unlike other de-essers, the device allows for multiple use of its powerful circuitry.

      Layman's Terms:

      The Empirical Labs DerrEsser is simply a De-Esser.  A De-Esser is perfect for taming overly trebly, sibilant vocals or other sources.  

    •  Freq. Response is 3 Hz to 120 kHz (-3dB points).

      • Dynamic Range – 115 dB from maximum output (.5%THD soft clipping) to minimum output. Transformerless noise floor typically – 93dBu.

      • Distortion Ranges between .0035% and .01% depending on mode and settings.

      • DC coupled Input and Outputs

      • High quality audio caps used internally.

      • Input Balanced, Output single ended but with balanced impedance.
      Pin 2 hot

      • Input Impedance is 20k Ohm. Output impedance is less than 51 ohms.

      • D-S Dynamics Time Constants – Attack time is less than 1mS. Release .04 sec, fixed internally.

      • Power Consumption – 8 Watts max. 4 Watts Typical
