Empirical Labs EL9 Mike-E

Specialising in adding warmth to your signal chain while offering digital control. Pretty much what you might expect from Empirical Labs, what's more unusual is that the EL9 is first and foremost a mic preamp. The transformer based compressor limiter has the quality we've come to expect with the pre benefiting from complete tonal control and a huge range of timbres.
