      For Gear Heads:

      As with ELI’s other signal processors, the Empirical Labs ELQ Lil FrEQ Equalizer takes a somewhat unique approach to its job.  Instead of daisy chaining several equalizers and frequency processors, we combined most of the sound sculpting tools an engineer needs into a compact single rack space box, while still offering the highest performance of any design in its class.

      Empirical Labs ELQ Lil FrEQ Five Section Types:

      1) Smoooooooth High and Low frequency shelving.
      2) A “Colored” High pass filter that emulates the warm low frequency cut of our favorite vintage equalizers.
      3) Four bands of top performance parametric EQ.
      4) A dynamic section that offers the verrrry highest performance analog Deesser available, switchable to one of the most musical High Frequency
      “knee” limiters ever built. It may be the first contoured soft knee limiter.
      5) A built in “direct box”, called the “Inst In”, which offers unparalleled
      distortion, noise, and frequency response when preamping instruments.

      Layman's Terms:

      The Empirical Labs ELQ Lil FrEQ is literally that.  A Little Freak of nature when it comes to a hardware Eq.  The Lil Freq is not only great as corrective eq but it also has a ton of tonal shaping possibilities.  Did we mention is also has a Instrument D.I. Great, versatile Hardware Eq

    • • Freq. Response – 5 Hz to 140 kHz on transformerless inputs and outputs.

      • Transformer Output response is 10 Hz to 110 kHz .

      • Dynamic Range – 120 dB from maximum output (.1% clipping) to minimum output. Greater than 110 dB signal to noise.

      • Distortion Ranges between .00056% and .005% depending on mode and settings. DS section has THD < .005%.

      • DC coupled Input and Outputs and one transformer coupled output

      • High quality audio caps used internally.

      • Dynamic Time Constants – Attack is approximately .5 mS. Release .04 sec, fixed internally.
